This highly practical one and half day course will provide attendees the deeper understanding and knowledge required to manage the more troublesome soft tissue injury presentations.

Delivered in tandem by the world renowned Craig Purdam with the new age Sports Physio Michael Giakoumis. This blend provides the wisdom and experience from Craig with Michael’s expertise in the rehabilitation practices formed from his time working with British athletes with the likes of James Moore and Stephen Mcleer. Michael also brings a wealth of knowledge of the elite sport environment having consulted widely across the NBA and EPL.

The workshops are designed to ensure participants can transfer their new found knowledge into their clinical knowledge.

Appropriate for seasoned clinicians, the workshops place a particular emphasis on hamstring, calf, and quadricep muscle injuries and is a valuable opportunity for experienced practitioners to refine their approach and stay at the forefront of cutting-edge sports physiotherapy practices.

Held at the new state of the art the head quarters of the Sydney Swans Football Club

Please note there will be NO Virtual Access as this is a highly practical masterclass.
