Rosen Kolev, PT MScSenior Instructor - Shockwave Training Canada
Rosen obtained a Masters degree in Physiotherapy at NSA in Sofia, Bulgaria in 1994. He practiced at the Regional Hospital in his home town of Dobrich until 2001 and ran his own private practice gaining vast experience in orthopaedic and neurological rehabilitation. During the same period, he was a clinical trainer and teacher at the Physiotherapy Assistants program of the local Medical College.


"Rosen was absolutely fantastic! I wish we had that session when we got the device. It makes so much more sense now: how to maintain it, how to use it effectively for different injuries, the appropriate positioning of the head, number of shocks, intensity, etc. Rosen was SO helpful. I recommend to anyone who purchases a shockwave device to take this training session before even turning it on for the first time."
