Higher Diploma in Sports Therapy
Sports therapy encompasses a wide range of skills and knowledge to underpin competency in assessing and treating people, both in the sporting and clinical environments. A sports therapist will be proficient in helping people of all ages recover from injuries and sporting conditions, and return to any previous level of activity with minimal risk of further injury. This often entails guiding a person beyond being able to carry out normal daily activities, and back to being able to perform complex actions under differing types of physical duress.
