Course Outline:

Sporting injuries are commonplace and present the health professional with unique challenges in terms of their aetiology, population and potential for recurrence. Critical thinking and reasoned management at the point of acute injury play a significant role in positive injury response. Health professionals working in sport strive to minimise time lost due to injury and effective management often requires the synthesis of a range of interventions to ensure speedy return to competition. Successful assessment of injuries in conjunction with a detailed understanding of the demands of the athlete’s sport is essential in order to develop effective treatment plans.

Rehabilitation of the injured athlete further requires a wide range of skills and depends on the integration and progression of various interventions from the five subcategories of: sensorimotor training, motor control stability training, strength training, range of motion enhancement and endurance training.

The aim of this course is to provide those who work in Sport and Exercise Medicine (e.g. doctors, physiotherapists, podiatrists) and related areas of practice, with advanced training in the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of sports related injuries and associated conditions.

This highly practical and interactive 2-Day course provides the necessary depth and breadth required by the physiotherapist to effective manage athletes from a range of sports.


Course Aims:

  • To provide participants with the practical skills necessary to provide optimal care to the injured athlete
  • To enable the participant to assess sporting injuries and their relationship to specific sporting activities
  • To provide enhanced understanding of innovative management strategies of common sporting injuries
  • To enable health professionals to critically evaluate the response of the sports person to injury and promote appropriate rehabilitation strategies
  • To underpin sports injury management with evidence based treatment and rehabilitation techniques relevant to the proposed future activity of the sports person
  • To enable the health professional to assess the sports person’s readiness for return to the previous or proposed level of activity
