Description

At Elite Physiotherapy Cookstown, we have many years experience in managing injuries in high level sport. To try help meet the demand of the local clubs who are seeking improved medical provision within their clubs, we have teamed up with leading health and safety experts, Health & Safety Services (NI).

Pitch-side Management & First Aid is aimed at the club volunteer, medical and physiotherapy students and graduates who wants to up-skill themselves in this area and provide pitch-side cover to the teams. If you are new to first aid for sport, or if it has been more than 12 months since you last completed any formal first aid training, the Pitchside Management & Sports First Aid is highly recommended.
