Elite Sports Therapy Class

This unique course takes you far beyond the traditional event sports massage training. We will be looking at on-site sporting event work, injury prevention, injury rehabilitation, and performance enhancement techniques. Olympic and professional athletes realize the benefits of elite sports therapy to fit their specific needs. How do you customize your techniques to complement the athletic trainer, sport medicine physician, physiotherapist, or chiropractor's work? Are you familiar with the biomechanics and common injuries of the various athletes? What about proper muscle firing orders for optimal performance? You will know which techniques can negatively affect performance if applied too close to competition. You will look at protocols to enhance transitions in endurance events like triathlons. You will analyze multiple sports movements and eliminate overactive and underactive muscle activity to prevent sports injuries and improve performance potential. This incredible course looks at Elite Sports Therapies that will set your work apart from the average sports massage therapist and could pave the way to working at international sporting events or securing a career with your favorite professional sports team.
