Anatomy of all ligaments, bursa, muscles, connective tissue, nerves and blood supply to the knee
Active, Passive, Active Resisted, and Clinical testing for the knee
Manual therapy techniques for the knee region
Exercise intervention of the knee- muscular endurance, strength, proprioception and functional tasks
