The course compliments the range of knowledge and skills of soft tissue assessments learned on our Level 4 Sports Massage, adding orthopaedic or 'special' tests to furnish you with a complete understanding and range of both joint and soft tissue injury assessments. Our experienced practitioner/tutors will guide you through the science and practical examination skills to become accomplished in assessing injuries.
