New Course Release: Radial Shockwave Training Essentials
Senior Shockwave instructor Rosen Kolev leads a new online continuing education course on integrating shockwave therapy in clinic treatment options. Learn tools and techniques to confidently use this modality to get the best results for patients.
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment used by physiotherapists and physicians to treat musculoskeletal conditions that have resulted in persistent pain ( > 3 months) and lost mobility, and which have been resistant to conventional treatments, such as lateral epicondylitis, patellar tendinitis, or plantar fasciitis. It is a safe and effective treatment. Most people experience relief after only a few treatments - they are pain free, with mobility restored and are able to return to work and/or sport.
Course Learning Objectives:
- Shockwave Components
- The Principle of Shockwave
- Shockwave maintenance and safety
- Clinical Applications
About the Instructor:
Rosen Kolev, PT MSc - Senior Instructor - Shockwave Training Canada
Rosen obtained a Masters degree in Physiotherapy at NSA in Sofia, Bulgaria in 1994. He practiced at the Regional Hospital in his home town of Dobrich until 2001 and ran his own private practice gaining vast experience in orthopaedic and neurological rehabilitation. During the same period, he was a clinical trainer and teacher at the Physiotherapy Assistants program of the local Medical College.
"Rosen was absolutely fantastic! I wish we had that session when we got the device. It makes so much more sense now: how to maintain it, how to use it effectively for different injuries, the appropriate positioning of the head, number of shocks, intensity, etc. Rosen was SO helpful. I recommend to anyone who purchases a shockwave device to take this training session before even turning it on for the first time."
