The APA is excited to present Sports Physiotherapy Level 1 and Sports Physiotherapy Level 2 in Hong Kong in 2018.

If you’re wanting to learn more about sports physiotherapy, or pursue a career in it, the Sports Physiotherapy Level 1 course should be your first step off the mark. This course is the first step in the career pathway developed by the Sports Physiotherapy Australia (SPA) National Committee for individuals who aspire to become Sports Physiotherapists or obtain introductory learning to sports physiotherapy.

This three day practical course teaches newly graduated physiotherapists skills in the assessment and diagnosis of sports injuries. Course participants are required to complete 8 hours of online pre-course work before attending the course.

The Sports Physiotherapy Level 2 course is aimed at physiotherapists with a minimum of three years of clinical experience, including some in the field of sports physiotherapy. Advanced clinical reasoning and assessment of sporting injuries will be addressed, with a strong practical component included. Return to sport programs, tendon overuse injuries and adolescent pathologies will all be covered.
