Join three-time Olympic paramedical staff member Joe Bentley for an in depth look at what sport massage really is. Over the past twelve years he has worked with some of Canada's top amateur athletes across three continents providing targeted treatments to increase sport performance.

Topics include: differentiating what separates sport massage from traditional massage, considerations for pre, mid and post competition treatments, and how to develop assessment chains to assess common injuries and conditions more quickly and efficiently. Contraindications to training and competition are also discussed, as is the role of a therapist in concussion prevention, identification and management.

Whether you are working trackside or you see athletic clients in your clinic, this course will deepen your understanding of how to treat this subpopulation more efficiently. From the weekend warrior to the Olympic champion, massage can be a powerful performance enhancer when used correctly!
