The fundamentals of radial shockwave / RPW
Open to physiotherapists, osteopaths, podiatrists, sports therapists, chiropractors & GPs, this one-day course aims to train those with an introductory understanding or little experience of radial shockwave therapy to a level in which they are comfortable treating patients themselves.
The day is split between theory and practical sessions to ensure practical experience is gained with the device and to explore this revolutionary treatment that has helped clinics develop effective programs for their patients.
Common chronic conditions to be covered include (but not limited to): Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, patellar tendonitis, great trochanteric pain syndrome, tennis elbow and shoulder calcification along with the latest evidence on shockwave mechanisms and effectiveness
The course will begin at 9am and end at approximately 4pm and will be hosted in either our London, Birmingham or Liverpool training centres. There will be a break around midday for lunch, which is provided. Any dietary requirements will be requested after you book.
There will be time once the course ends to ask any specific questions about shockwave therapy or related topics.
This course will only cover radial shockwave (also called radial pressure wave) and will not cover focused shockwave or EMTT, which are covered on our “Greater Depth” course.
