This 3 hour continuing education course is targeted to physical therapists, occupational therapists, chiropractors, nurse practitioners, physician's assistants and any other medical professionals interested in understanding Shockwave therapy and its therapeutic uses specific to pelvic floor indications.
This course will provide an introduction to using this cutting-edge technology in the clinic for improved patient outcomes. Participants will come away from the course with an understanding of how this modality can enhance their own manual therapy treatment skills, as well as the efficacy of Shockwave Therapy versus other modalities such as ultrasound, dry needling, laser therapy, TENS, and NEMS.
In addition, the attendee will understand the differences in modalities available currently in order to consider what may be best for their clinic and patients. Lectures will cover; what is shockwave, how it can decrease pain and potentially accelerate healing, what is the research behind it, what are the different types of shockwave devices, and what are the best indications of use for each of them as well as case studies discussing patient protocols and outcomes.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to perform the following:
Attending a remote course is easy and safe, and you can do it entirely from the security and comfort of your own home or clinic without having to find a lab partner.
