This unique continuing education course, part of the International Sport Massage Diploma Program©, is containing the essential knowledge for massage therapists, who work, or would like to work with athletes from gross-roots level to the elite, or the physically active general population. Sport massage is a special area of massage therapy, and integral part of Sport Medicine. Although Massage Therapists are required to have Standard First Aid with CPR training, sometimes they have to deal with various sport injuries.

The objective of this course is to introduce the required specific knowledge of assessment and treatment protocols for the most common conditions and sport injuries to the Massage Therapist, who is working alone or in cooperation with other Health Care providers with a sport team, or with individual athletes during training or competition. The dynamic approach of this textbook will assist Sports Massage Therapists with the safe and efficient assessment and rehabilitation of sports injuries.
Summaries, self-testing questions and references at the end of each Chapter help the students in the understanding of the important concepts.

In order to receive a Certificate of Completion for this course, the registrant must write and pass an exam with a minimum of 75% mark, within 9 months from the date of registration. Suggested study time is 120 hours. For getting CE-credits, registrants need to apply them from their association.
