The following hot international topics will be covered:
  • New concepts in principles of management.

  • What the heck is Neuroplasticity? Utilising plasticity of the brain to enhance rehabilitation.

  • Isometrics: Why the hype?… To Push or to Hold.

  • Challenging Transversus: Why bracing is often not helpful. If it was all about Transversus, why even bother giving us Rectus Abdominus?

  • Pushing the link between breathing, back pain, peripheral pain & poor performance.

  • Correcting posture for optimal system balance

  • Pelvic Girdle Pain – MythBusters – challenging beliefs & simplifying management

  • Palpation & Surface anatomy of the pelvic girdle…. if you want to release the deep hip external rotators (eg), you need to be able to find them!

  • Femero-pelvic control & cool concepts such as Vastus Lateralis & the hydraulic amplifying effect.

  • Is it really all about the Glutes? – should we start with isometrics or launch straight into functional rehab?

  • FAI? Labral tear? OA hip? Tendinopathy? Let’s use Differential testing, combined with clinical reasoning to differentiate

  • Running principles such as stride length, step rate, torque & forward trunk lean made easy. Useful Apps to use to help you assess biomechanical running faults & retrain better running & gait strategies.

  • The poor patella-femoral joint…stuck between the hip & the ankle. Let’s look above & below to improve outcomes.

  • Sharing of Assessment Tips & Tricks learnt from Years as a Clinician at the ‘Coal-Face’

  • The latest international consensus on how to rehabilitate lower quarter tendinopathies

  • Multimodal management. Individualised programs. We are skilled clinicians, NOT technicians.

  • Rehab: Learn to Load it! Using Volume & RPE to monitor improvement & incrementally increase the Load.

  • Observe a full assessment, reasoning & management of an ‘unseen’ patient to help integrate all you have learnt.
