A bit about the course...
The course is intended for those qualified and experienced in treating injuries and particular emphasis will be given to the application of ultrasound, interferential and combination therapy in sport. This course is a natural progression for those who already have good "hands on skills" and a working knowledge of sports injuries. The successful graduate will be able to demonstrate a thorough understanding of the use of electrotherapy for the management of injuries in a safe and professional manner. They must be fully aware of the effects and contraindications of electrotherapy.
