…ensures a real clinical perspective

My team would like to thank James Woledge for his help in delivering the training in a relaxed methodical pace in which everyone could keep up with. As a lecturer, James’s knowledge, application and experience in the field of shockwave is unquestionable and he is clearly a credit to your organisation. In particular the way he links the clinical application for tendon pathologies based upon scientific research that falls in line with current NICE guidelines combined with his anecdotal experiences ensures a real clinical perspective for any new practitioner

…well presented and very informative

I really enjoyed this one day training course. It was well presented and very informative. There was a range of shockwave experience amongst the attendees and this was catered for very professionally by the instructor James. I am looking forward to the advanced course already!
