Talk outlines

 

1) The Goldilocks approach to hamstring injury rehabilitation - getting (the optimal loading) just right.

 

In this presentation of the latest advances in rehabilitation of hamstring injuries, we will discuss criteria based programmes, where clinical reasoning fits in, and why we have to measure outcomes that makes sense. To promote healing and recovery, we need to achieve optimal loading.

 

2) Back to the future for sports injuries - predicting, pretending, or preventing?

 

There are many good reasons to screen your athletes, but predicting future injury is not one of them. This presentation will review injury prevention models, illustrate the difficulty with predicting injury and high risk athletes, and get practical about how we can better protect our athletes from risk of injury.
