Workshop Aims:
This is a unique practical workshop devised to deliver safe, effective evidence-based Ultrasound underpinned by key aspects of theory. Moreover, this workshop offers a multifactorial approach. We use 1 & 3 MHz frequencies, admirably complemented by appropriate Manual Therapy and Rehab techniques. The purpose of a mulitifactorial approach is to optimise the healing process and enhance recovery in line with the scientific principles underlining tissue healing.

Workshop Rationale:
Therapeutic Ultrasound (US) is arguably the most widely used Electrotherapy modality in the UK. To be safe and clinically effective – the Therapist must use appropriate evidence-based setting with respect to phases of tissue healing. US can be delivered within a few minutes and can be very effective especially when used within a multifactorial approach i.e. in-conjunction with appropriate Manual Therapy & Rehab techniques.

A unique opportunity to seek guidance:
If you already possess an Ultrasound machine you may have the opportunity to seek guidance in operational aspects with respect to your own equipment – subject to prior arrangement.

Workshop Outcomes:
On completion of this one 1-day workshop, delegates should be confident, safe and effective in the delivery of evidence-based ultrasound. Moreover, possess the necessary knowledge and skills to deliver Ultrasound in combination with appropriate manual therapy and rehab techniques throughout the progressive stages of tissue healing and recovery.
