INTRODUCTION TO LEVEL 5
Certificate in Sports Massage Therapy
The ITEC Level 5 Certificate in Sports Massage is specifically designed to enhance the capabilities of experienced Sports Massage practitioners and Physical Therapists. It equips them with the essential knowledge, advanced skills, and techniques required to work as proficient Therapists. These advanced practitioners will be well-prepared to cater to a diverse clientele, including the general public, recreational sports enthusiasts, professional sports persons, and elite athletes.
In contrast to solely addressing specific problem areas, graduates of this program will possess the ability to conduct comprehensive full-body assessments and biomechanical testing. This enables them to identify the underlying causes of persistent, chronic, and complex conditions like lower back pain, facilitating more effective treatment strategies.
The primary objective of this course is to enhance the existing therapist's skill set, allowing them to provide in-depth assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation for intricate, complicated, and chronic injuries. The curriculum also incorporates cutting-edge knowledge in areas such as neurological testing, analysis and treatment of nerve injuries, assessment of dermatomes and myotomes, reflex testing, evaluation of muscle strength and flexibility, the use of goniometers, and pelvic mobilizations, among others.
