Participation in sports activities, either for recreational or competitive reasons is growing at an ever increasing rate. Consequently, the incidence of sports injuries and the demand for effective treatment grows accordingly. Many amateur athletes provoke their injuries unnecessarily, thus prolonging the natural healing period. Crucially, this workshop investigates the critical role of educating the athlete in order to minimise disruptive actions. All too frequently athletes re-commence training too early, thus provoke the injury, which leads to unnecessary prolonged periods of recovery.


Using a ‘model’ Case-Study of applied evidence-based-practice (EBP), this course is designed to investigate the entire Sports Injury Management concept – from initial injury through to return to full competition. This approach will adopt contemporary research and include; patient assessment, clinical SWOT analysis, clinical reasoning, base-line measurements, ongoing assessment, patient education all embraced in the scientific principles underlying phases of tissue healing.


All forms of therapists involved in the treatment of sports injuries (from amateur to elite level), especially those seeking an EBP approach.  We use a simple, systematic, and logical approach to treatment of injury and also the delivery of our course content.
