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.
 

Entry Requirements

 
To attain this award you must have already completed all five modules shown in our Level 5 Sports Massage Award or equivalent, comprising:

  ·  Sports Injuries Upper Body
  ·  Sports Injuries Lower Body
  ·  Gait Analysis
  ·  Neuro-Spinal Assessment & Treatment (3 Days)
  ·  Advanced Soft Tissue Techniques
 
Other eligible applicants may include Foundation Degree and Full Honours Degree graduates allied to healthcare with clear evidence of the above, and other professions such as Osteopaths, Chiropractors, etc.
