The Team Doctor Program specializes in learning instant pain relief methods of musculoskeletal injuries and joint disorders, including those resulting from sports. The program consists of three sessions totaling 50 hours of intensive lectures and hands-on workshops. Each session integrates important principles and unique techniques from traditional Korean Medicine and western sports medicine to properly assess and diagnose conditions to deliver efficient and effective treatments to your patient. Once you complete all three sessions, you will receive the Certification in the Sports Korean Medicine (SKM) and be able to specialize in a wide-range of musculoskeletal disorders and sports injuries.

 

The goal of SKM is to restore the structural integrities and balance of the inner and outer body to reduce pain, restore function and promote optimal performance. SKM is deeply rooted in Traditional Korean Medicine which is well recognized as evidence based Eastern Medicine. This program incorporates SKM with sports medicine, manual medicine, physical and rehabilitation medicine, preventative medicine, emergency medicine and psychological medicine.

 

During this program, we aim to fully equip all our participants with knowledge and techniques which are non-invasive, human-centric, doping-free care and instant relief by sharing our know-how to manage all patients and athletes with musculoskeletal injuries. We also aim to provide ensured effective and efficient care to all athletes and general public who you may encounter daily at your clinic as well as in any sports event.

 

The lectures focus on anatomy and physiology of the body, and structural and functional alignments to understand the mechanism of sports and musculoskeletal injuries. The course will also cover anatomy and physiology of the musculoskeletal system in depth.
