By Simon Noad:

The role of the physiotherapist continues to evolve in the sporting and recreational arena. It is widely accepted that physiotherapists in these settings should be implementing individualised injury prevention strategies to reduce injury rates and maximise athletic potential. Appropriately assessing a client's motor patterning, proprioception, lumbopelvic stability, relevant flexibility and having the ability to create a specific intervention plan to enhance these physical attributes is key in this field.

This workshop provides the opportunity for clinicians to develop the knowledge and skills required to undertake a screening of an individual or squad, analyse the results and create specific treatment or exercise programs. Current screening methods will be discussed and critiqued with the aim of clustering specific, evidence based assessments together. This will give the clinician the tools to perform a screening that assess multiple physical attributes, enabling them to link them together to produce a comprehensive injury prevention programme.

This is an evidence based workshop with strong practical elements, please come dressed in trainers and sporty based clothes. It is ideal for clinicians currently working or looking to work with athletes of a variety of ages and abilities.
