​​Course Description: This course is a three-session (total four-day) program,

The Team Doctor Program specializes in learning instant pain relief methods of musculoskeletal injuries and joint disorders, especially those resulting from sports. The program consists of three sessions totaling 50 hours of intensive lectures and real time hands-on workshops. Each session integrates important principles and techniques from traditional Korean Medicine and western sports medicine to properly assess and diagnose orthopedic conditions to deliver efficient and effective treatments. When all three sessions are completed, 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 primary goal of SKM is to restore the structural integrities and balance of the inner/ outer body to reduce pain, restore function and promote optimal performance. SKM is deeply rooted in Traditional Korean Medicine, recognized as evidence based Eastern Medicine. This program incorporates SKM with sports, manual, physical rehabilitation, preventative, emergency and psychological medicine.

 

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

 

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