This course is designed to provide advanced knowledge, both theoretical and practical, specifically for clients requiring physical rehabilitation. The course will also provide value added effect for your general clients.

This course is REP’s accredited for ten points and will include an assessment at days end to ensure the key principles are understood.

The course consists of three key topics:

1) Biomechanical assessment: Involving objective measurement of core strength and coordination, whole body flexibility ratios and muscle firing patterns.
