Electrical Stimulation & Therapeutic Ultrasound

Course Description

This popular course is now offered in three different formats, live webinar, on-site single day, or on-site two day.  Through a combination of interesting lecture and hands-on labs, this course provides information and skills that can be utilized in the clinic the very next day.

The speaker has a unique ability to clear-up many misconceptions regarding these modalities, and making topics that are often confusing understandable.

The on-site course includes extensive hands-on application labs for ultrasound and electrical stimulation.
