Shockwave Therapy in Running Injury Rehab
Using ultrasound to better diagnose issues and target treatment
In this one-day masterclass, attendees will learn how to integrate shockwave therapy into the rehabilitation of common running injuries such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinopathy, medial tibial stress syndrome, gluteal tendinopathy, and proximal hamstring tendinopathy.
Overuse injuries are common in runners and can be challenging to treat, but shockwave therapy is a non-invasive, evidence-based modality that has been shown to be effective in the management of chronic tendinopathy in this population.
The course will cover the use of both radial and focused shockwave therapy, as well as Extracorporeal Magneto-Transduction Therapy (EMTT), and will also address relevant management strategies such as load management, strength training, and gait retraining.
These strategies are important components of a multi-modal approach to the treatment of running injuries. During the course, attendees will have the opportunity to gain practical experience in the use and application of these modalities in the treatment of common running injuries.
The course will be held at either our London or Liverpool training centers, starting at 9am and ending at approximately 4pm, with a break for lunch (provided) around midday.
After the course, there will be time for attendees to ask any specific questions about shockwave therapy or related topics. This is a great opportunity for practitioners looking to expand their knowledge and skills in the management of running injuries using shockwave therapy.
You must have owned a Storz Medical shockwave device for more than six months to be eligible for this course.
