This course is great. Lots of practical info that you can apply to your clients immediately (I am a physiotherapist). I work with lots of young talented clients who are involved in team sports with no medical team and no one clued up on load management, so I look forward to using this information with some teams to improve their performance and reduce the risk of injury.
