With a combination of research and evidence based solutions from soccer, rugby and the world of sport this exciting workshop sets out to tackle some of the most difficult injury issues that health professionals, conditioners, sport scientists and coaches face every week in practice.
The two-day workshop of practical sessions, discussions and theory will be a combination of the latest research and recent case studies, covering key areas ranging from managing training loads to specific injury diagnostics and return to sport. It will ask questions of what we really understand about injury prevention and injury burden.
As the workshop develops it will explore the three phases we deem to be important in Return to Sport, exploring the enabling of psychological conditioning rather than purely carrying out the physical competency-driven analysis. The methods involved within the three phases of participation, play or performance within the Return to Sport Continuum will ultimately affect the decision-making process in deeming athletes ‘Match Fit’.
The focus will range from analysing how to develop physical literacy and training load programs in younger populations to specific prehab, warm up and conditioning work that can applied at elite and amateur levels.
These sessions would be beneficial in sporting contexts as well as healthcare clinics for anyone involved in injury, sports medicine, performance, strength and conditioning or player welfare.
