The Diaphragm/Pelvic Floor Piston for Adult Populations: Part One

 

Instructor: Julie Wiebe, PT, MPT, BSc
Location:  Bellevue, WA

Course Description:

Despite its inclusion in most definitions of the core, few rehabilitation or fitness programs integrate the pelvic floor into strengthening or neuromotor training. An integrated clinical model of the pelvic floor requires a broadened definition of pelvic floor function beyond merely maintaining continence. When linked to the diaphragm, the pelvic floor acts as a powerful stabilizer of lumbosacral, sacroiliac, pubic symphysis, and pelvic-hip joints ensuring efficient LE and UE mechanics. In addition, the dynamic interplay of these deep muscular elements will balance and harness the intra-abdominal pressure system as a component of central stability.
Clinicians will be introduced to an innovative, clinical model that incorporates a neuromuscular-based core recruitment and IAP balancing strategy, driven by external cueing of both the pelvic floor and diaphragm. This provides a sturdy, yet dynamic foundation that is responsive to the demands of function, movement, fitness and sport. Regardless of age or sport of choice, building programs that maximize results without compounding common women’s health issues such as incontinence, and organ prolapse is a critical clinical skill for all clinicians who treat females (regardless of specialty).
Session participants will have the opportunity to experience the material themselves through exercises that integrate the diaphragm/pelvic floor piston into core stabilization, postural muscle patterning, gait, fitness and sport specific activities.

to Oct 28

Pelvic Health for Non-Pelvic Health Practitioners - Duluth, MN

  • College of St. Scholastica (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Instructor:  Sarah Haag, PT, DPT, WCS

The world of pelvic health can seem intimidating to people experiencing bowel, bladder, pelvic pain or sexual issues, as well as to healthcare practitioners who would like to help!  Considering the high prevalence of issues like urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, and pelvic organ prolapse, and the large impact on quality of life these issues have, it’s unacceptable to ignore that many of these issues can be addressed with conservative care.

It is a common misconception that ‘pelvic health’ or ‘women’s health’ is a specialty niche practice available only to experts, and involves specialized equipment and invasive exams. In this two-day course, participants will learn about common pelvic/women’s health issues, how and when to ask about those issues, assessment, and interventions supported by current evidence, and when to refer to another practitioner.  All assessments will be ‘pants on’, but the pros and cons of intravaginal and intrarectal exams will be described and discussed.

Topics to be covered:

·      Urinary incontinence
·      Pelvic Pain
·      Diastasis Recti and Pelvic Organ Prolapse
·      Musculoskeletal issues during Pregnancy
·      Pelvic floor dysfunction
·      Common bowel issues
·      How to assess the evidence when choosing an intervention

Course Description:
This is a time of great change in the management of musculoskeletal pain and injury. Whilst research has shown the limitations of hands-on manipulative approaches, clinicians are also recognising how psychological factors influence treatment and recovery.

But where do you start? How do you put the latest clinical research into practice? How do you decide whether to prioritise physical or psychological approaches in your clinical work?

On "The Neck: Clinical Rehabilitation” you will learn:
• The latest, cutting edge assessment and treatment approaches.
• A person-centred approach that refers to the evidence base but at the same time acknowledges the narrative of the patient.
• Novel ‘hands on’ techniques and approaches to use in your clinic immediately after completing the course.

You can become the neck pain expert in your clinic!

Piston Science Part 2: Clinical Correlations for Adult Populations - #EntropyWest

Piston Science Part Two:  Time to dig deeper. The Diaphragm/Pelvic Floor Piston for Adult Populations: Part One (aka The Piston Science series online) provided a foundational framework to guide patients towards creating an inside-out strategy of dynamic stability by balancing muscular relationships and pressure systems with a whole lot of brainwork and motor control. The goal: to address pelvic health, musculoskeletal and performance issues simultaneously.

 Now let’s take the next step and explore how to apply the ideas more specifically into different patient populations. Piston Science: Part Two will explore clinical decision-making in real time with 4 live patients over 2-days.  We will collectively participate in patient interviewing, assessment and generation of treatment ideas, treatment planning and progressions, and developing cueing options. Grow your clinical “theology” by critically thinking through guiding clinical questions: What’s your goal? What’s their goal? What’s your theory? How do you treat the why and who, not the what? What are the limits of your theology? When do you refer out? The cases will be selected by the hosts, so it will be a bit like a box of chocolates, “you never know what you’re gonna get” (if you are local you can also suggest a patient). However, the goal will be that the selected patients will have a variety of pelvic health (incontinence, prolapse), post-pregnancy (diastasis, pain) issues and fitness goals (running, CrossFit). Come and be ready to think and participate.

Working with Acceptance, Mindfulness, and Values in Chronic Pain: An Introduction and Skills Building Seminar

  • Entropy Physiotherapy and Wellness (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Instructor:  Dr. Kevin Vowles

Chronic pain can be a source of immense human suffering and disability. There is emerging evidence indicating that as pain sufferers set aside struggles for control over pain, attend to present experiences, and engage in meaningful activities, they suffer less and function better, even while pain persists. These treatment processes are respectively referred to as acceptance, mindfulness, and values-based action. The extant literature suggests these processes are highly relevant in the treatment of chronic pain, where the best-researched therapy model has been Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), a form of CBT that directly targets these processes. This seminar will provide a brief overview of the theoretical model underlying ACT and will include significant opportunities for clinical practice. The majority of the seminar will be spent in experiential, skill building, and case conceptualization exercises with training modalities including a mix of didactic instruction, modeling, and practice/role play. Opportunities for consultation, instruction, and feedback will also be provided. At the conclusion of the class, participants will be able to more adequately identify targets for treatment in those suffering from chronic pain and directly apply interventions to augment acceptance, mindfulness, and values.

 

This course is appropriate for Healthcare providers working in clinical or academic settings and who work with individuals who have chronic pain and illness.

This course has been approved for 14 CE hours by the Illinois Physical Therapy Association - Approval 647-6552

Instructor:  Richmond Stace
 

Course Description:

Pain Coaching is the vehicle of delivering the positive knowledge, skills and practices to the individual who wishes to manage and overcome their pain, and live well.

We seek to get the best out of an individual by clarifying their strengths and successful styles, using practical examples. 
The Pain Coach element is the ‘know-how’. It is the way that individuals tap into their potential using skills and practices that they develop under your care. In effect, we coach the person to coach themselves to living well and meaningfully. The person gets back to living by living. In other words, together we design a programme that both interweaves into the person’s life and encourages engagement with chosen activities that foster states of flow.

The Programme contains many practical tools for people to integrate into their life — as they are encouraged to live in the best way they can, engaging in daily meaningful activities. This includes the fundamentals: understand pain, sensorimotor training, ways to reduce the potential and perceived threats, the role of hands-on treatment, mindful practice for focus and insight, the creation of inner calm and focused outer work and the skills of being well.

Return to Play & Injury Prevention: The Performance Continuum

Instructors: Stephen Mutch & Dr. Alan McCall

 

This two-day workshop of practical sessions, discussions, and theory will cover key areas ranging from managing training loads to specific injury diagnostics and return to sport. It will ask questions of what we really understand about injury burden and prevention, raising issues about context and the shared decision-making process that facilitates optimum recovery and re-integration. Topics such as the sociology of decision-making, physical literacy, affordances and self-determination theory as they affect patients and athletes will be discussed. There will also be an examination of mechanotransduction as it relates to how we consider load management in rehab and training, and how we design programmes in light of tissue stress and risk modifiers. 

The workshop combines research with evidence-based solutions from soccer, rugby and the world of sport tackling some of the most difficult injury issues that health professionals, conditioners, sport scientists, and coaches face in elite and amateur sports. 

We will explore the enabling of psychological conditioning rather than purely describing physical competency-driven analysis. The three phases of participation, play or performance established within the Return to Sport Continuum will ultimately affect the decision-making process in deeming athletes ‘fit for sport’.

This super practical course will cut through the confusion and conflicting information around treating pelvic pain.  It is suitable for all health professionals who treat people with pelvic pain. The optional internal component is open to all participants who have prior training in vaginal and rectal examination. 

Participants will learn purposefully non-painful manual therapy techniques and neurodynamic options for the nerves of the abdomen, pelvis and upper leg. Labs will progress from acute to persistent pain treatment options and include education in self-treatment techniques for improved patient outcomes. Participants will be able to screen and design a progressive treatment for all of the major pelvic nerves. 

This course is full of movement and helps clinicians to push their creativity in order to design treatments for people who may be afraid to move.  Movement and exercise progression include return to fitness and heavy load as appropriate. The current evidence on pain and education are woven throughout the course. You will leave with an additional file of resources for use in your clinic and to help with adapting the information to your own patient population.

Physical Therapy and Public Health: Connecting perspectives with research and practice

  • Entropy Physiotherapy and Wellness (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Musculoskeletal pain is a public health problem because it affects a large
proportion of the population. There is also consistent evidence that people with persistent musculoskeletal pain are those most likely to have lifestyle related health risk factors, and suffer from other chronic diseases. For example, meta-analyses have found strong associations between pain and; diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, obesity, smoking, inactivity, alcohol misuse and mental health problems. This suggests that making substantial improvement to general and musculoskeletal health requires alignment of clinical care, population health and public health sectors. At this point however, musculoskeletal practitioners and researchers do not work effectively in the population health or public health space.

Research and development of models of care (clinical and population health) that integrate consideration of pain and lifestyle-related health risks is relatively new. Interest in the idea is high, new initiatives are being actively encouraged by governments and providers, and more efficient use of resources is an imperative faced by healthcare systems across the world. But arguably, intentions have progressed further than action.

Instructor:  Sarah Haag, PT, DPT, WCS

The world of pelvic health can seem intimidating to people experiencing bowel, bladder, pelvic pain or sexual issues, as well as to healthcare practitioners who would like to help!  Considering the high prevalence of issues like urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, and pelvic organ prolapse, and the large impact on quality of life these issues have, it’s unacceptable to ignore that many of these issues can be addressed with conservative care.

It is a common misconception that ‘pelvic health’ or ‘women’s health’ is a specialty niche practice available only to experts, and involves specialized equipment and invasive exams. In this two-day course, participants will learn about common pelvic/women’s health issues, how and when to ask about those issues, assessment, and interventions supported by current evidence, and when to refer to another practitioner.  All assessments will be ‘pants on’, but the pros and cons of intravaginal and intrarectal exams will be described and discussed.

Topics to be covered:

·      Urinary incontinence
·      Pelvic Pain
·      Diastasis Recti and Pelvic Organ Prolapse
·      Musculoskeletal issues during Pregnancy
·      Pelvic floor dysfunction
·      Common bowel issues
·      How to assess the evidence when choosing an intervention

Just added...  remote attendance!  Obviously being in a course in person allows for more interaction during lecture and labs, but we know it's hard to travel sometimes!  As a result, the course will be recorded and available for all participants after the course.

Functional Therapeutic Movement

Course Description:

This is NOT JUST another course telling you movement is important or showing you some new exercises but a course about PEOPLE and how to actually apply movement and exercise to them in a systematic and informed way. You could describe it as clinical reasoning for exercise and rehab!

Many therapists struggle taking modern academia around pain and movement and translate it into practical application. This course will outline how to simply apply both physical & cognitively driven components for a therapeutic approach based around HUMANS rather than simply their structures. Functional Therapeutic Movement is a course designed to truly encompass a top down (cognitive) and a bottom up (physical movement) based approach to therapy.

An EPIC Night with Professor Paul Hodges

Another EPIC night!!  

Two years ago, Lorimer Moseley agreed to the first 'Cabernet Conversation' night at Entropy.  We wanted to have the time and space to address all of those questions better addressed over a nice glass of Cabernet.  That event was such a success (and helped send a Doctor of Physical Therapy Student to Combined Sections Meeting!), Professor Moseley agreed to do it again!!  This led to the establishment of the EPIC Scholarship to help send people to conferences that they'd not otherwise be able to attend.  The first EPIC Night allowed us to help THREE people attend the World Congress on Abdominal and Pelvic Pain in Washington DC.  

With the generosity of world-class researchers and teachers,  Entropy has established the Educational Possibilities in Collaboration (or EPIC) Scholarship. Our third fundraiser will be an evening with Paul Hodges

Join us for a night of science, convivial conversation, congenial collaboration, and nibbles with Professor Paul Hodges!! This will be a casual night of wine and nibbles, and wonderful conversation!!  

Proceeds will go to the EPIC - Educational Possibilities in Collaboration - Scholarship - an initiative to fund one person to attend the 17th  International Association for the Study of Pain World Congress on Pain in Boston, September 12-16, 2018.

Space is limited to 35 people, so sign up now!

Novel Movement and the Edgework Approach

to Dec 10

Novel Movement and the Edgework Approach

  • Entropy Physiotherapy and Wellness (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Novel movements describe a process of altering the context and manner in which painful movements are performed in order to change the result from one of pain and limitation. Edgework describes a specific process of attending to movement during the interventions that are used in the clinic such that self-efficacy and expansion of movement are facilitated.

In this 2 day workshop a framework for the interactive process of care will be presented with specific applications of current pain science and theory to the clinic. The approach of moving within specific novel contexts, allowing for new outputs to previously painful movements, will be presented as well as a specific process that can overlay existing models of care. Specific applications will be presented for the upper and lower quarter.

About the speaker

Cory Blickenstaff runs a private practice in Vancouver, wa using manual and movement based interventions for employees in their work setting. His focus is on fostering self efficacy in successfully self managing mechanical pain issues and eliminating the iatrogenic influence of care. To this end he has developed a movement approach called Edgework.

Description: Statistics are a powerful, but often misinterpreted and misapplied language that can both enhance the allure of potentially ineffective treatments and dampen the enthusiasm for promising alternatives. This 2-day course will help healthcare professionals meaningfully evaluate and interpret statistical methodologies used to present data. This interactive and applied course will use examples from rehabilitation and medical literature to help clinicians become comfortable with reading and critiquing the statistical methods used in research articles.

Topics will include:

1.) review of statistical terminology such as power, effect size, and responsiveness
2.) simple statistical comparisons for 2 group and multiple group comparisons such as t-tests, chi-squared tests, and ANOVA
3.) linear and logistic regression and
4.) survival analysis (time-to-event). We will use publically available checklists such as CONSORT statements, STROBE statements, and PRISMA to guide reviews of articles and give attendees tools for future reviews.

 

Objectives:

By the end of the two-day course, attendees should be able to:

·      Describe common statistical tests and assumptions for group comparisons in research articles

·      Be able to define how statistical power is important to interpreting conclusions of an article

·      Define effect size and its relevance to interpreting article conclusions

·      Interpret unadjusted and adjusted statistical models within rehabilitation literature

·      Differentiate between statistical significance and clinically meaningful differences in research papers

Better information for better care. Using evidence to inform practice

  • Entropy Physiotherapy & Wellness (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Instructors: Dr. Steve Kamper & Dr. Neil O'Connell

Course description
This 3 day course is designed for current clinicians and aims to help participants become better users of clinical research. The course will explain and cut-through the jargon of observational studies, trials and systematic reviews and offer a framework for critically appraising clinical research. The broad aim is that participants will develop the skills to go beyond the abstract of a paper and be able to make detailed and informed judgements regarding the validity and results of clinical research and to consider what those results might mean to their practice. Finally the course aims to see how this process informs the management of low back pain.

Format
The course will consist of a mix of lectures and group workshops. Workshops will include critical appraisal of contemporary open-access journal articles, and practical exercises to develop the skills necessary for understanding research and applying evidence-based practice. The final day will take these core principles and use the management of low back pain as a focused example of how to apply them. At all times the emphasis will be on keeping it clinically relevant, fun and interactive and there will be plenty of space for open discussion.

**We know that summer is busy!  We'd love to have you for all 3 days, but we've given you the option to choose, 1, 2 or 3 days!

  • Google Calendar ICS

Date:  July 8-9, 2017
Instructor:  Ralph Dehner, COTA/L

Falls can have a devastating impact on the health and independence of people as they age.  The CDC reports that 1 out of 4 older adults fall every year and 95% of hip fractures are caused by a fall.

Reasons for falling may vary, but many factors that increase your risk of falling such as poor leg strength, difficulty walking, and poor endurance can be improved through the practice of Tai Chi.

Tai Chi has been gaining popularity as research has proven it to be one of the most effective and adaptable fall prevention options for the general public. This makes it an ideal intervention for both clinical practice and community classes. Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention was developed to specifically address the pain and poor mobility associated with arthritis as well as improve stability and balance.

Join us for a 2-day workshop to learn how to impact arthritis and balance on the individual and community level! You will learn the basic principles of Tai Chi that improve balance and the quality of life of those impacted by osteoarthritis.

Piston Science Part Two: It Depends! Clinical Decision Making in the Real World
May

to May 21

Piston Science Part Two: It Depends! Clinical Decision Making in the Real World

Time to dig deeper. The Diaphragm/Pelvic Floor Piston for Adult Populations: Part One (aka The Piston Science series online) provided a foundational framework to guide patients towards creating an inside-out strategy of dynamic stability by balancing muscular relationships and pressure systems with a whole lot of brainwork and motor control. The goal: to address pelvic health, musculoskeletal and performance issues simultaneously.

 Now let’s take the next step and explore how to apply the ideas more specifically into different patient populations. Piston Science: Part Two will explore clinical decision making in real time with 4 live patients over 2-days.  We will collectively participate in patient interviewing, assessment and generation of treatment ideas, treatment planning and progressions, and developing cueing options. Grow your clinical “theology” by critically thinking through guiding clinical questions: What’s your goal? What’s their goal? What’s your theory? How do you treat the why and who, not the what? What are the limits of your theology? When do you refer out? The cases will be selected by the hosts, so it will be a bit like a box of chocolates, “you never know what you’re gonna get” (if you are local you can also suggest a patient). However, the goal will be that the selected patients will have a variety of pelvic health (incontinence, prolapse), post-pregnancy (diastasis, pain) issues and fitness goals (running, crossfit). Come and be ready to think and participate.

 Pre-requisites:
You must have completed either the live or online version of Part One (Diaphragm/Pelvic Floor Piston for Adult Populations) at least 3 months prior to participating with effort towards implementing the concepts.

Need to take Part One to join the fun?  Find the online version here

 The course is intended for PTs, PTA’s, OTs and OTAs only. This is a clinical rehabilitation course.

Objectives: Following completion of this course, participants will be able to:

1.  Develop clinical decision making skills to form a “theology” for care based in critical thinking that guides patient interview, assessment and treatment progressions.

2.  Apply Piston Science concepts into multiple patient populations.

3.  Learn to live in the grey area of “it depends”!

The Pain Picture

  • Entropy Physiotherapy and Wellness (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

What is this course about?

The last few decades have brought about a wealth of discovery in pain sciences. Clinicians and patients are recognising the value in bringing findings from research with imaging; lab techniques; and observational and behavioural experiments to better understand pain in a clinical setting. 

Pain is an experience, not a sensation. A broad framework is required to understand the place of biological and behavioural responses that occur when someone experiences pain. Inviting philosophical thinking allows us to go some way to link these bodily mechanisms with the self. 

This 2-day course explores complex pain states by considering the dynamical interactions of brain, body and world. It uses Complex Regional Pain Syndrome as the reference point to understand the experience and perception of the person in pain. 

Course objectives

After this course you will be:     

1. Aware of predictive processing and how it explains a pain experience

2. Able to discuss generative models and active inference with regard to the person in pain

3. Able to perform basic bedside perceptual tests for the person in pain

4. Able to consider the rationale for appropriate treatment techniques and critique your own biases

Course outline:
Registration 8.30am - Start 9am - Finish 4.30pm. A mix of theory & practical sessions covering:

•   Predictive processing, hierarchical generative models and active inference
•   First-person perspective of the sufferer
•   Tools to measure pain experiences – bringing science into the clinic
•   Novel treatment techniques in rehabilitation

to May 7

The Hip and Shoulder: Comprehensive NOT Complicated

SOLD OUT

This is a unique two day workshop that spans the Atlantic Ocean and attempts to bring the USAs and UKs physiotherapy professions closer together.

Hosted by Erik Meira from the USA and Adam Meakins from the UK it will look at TWO areas that often confuse and frustrate therapists the most, the hip and the shoulder. These areas will be thoroughly explored, investigated and probed by Erik and Adam in a workshop that promises to be unlike any other!

 THE HIP with Erik

There will be a focus on the hip pathology in the young adult discussing intra-articular and extra-articular pathology. The goal of the course is to provide a simple framework for assessing the hip region, understanding core concepts of human movement, and developing an appropriate exercise progression for the lower quarter. 

 

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Explore the current understanding of the mechanisms of injury in non-arthritic intra-articular hip pathology
  •  Perform a simple screen for hip patients that would benefit from early surgical consult versus those that can be treated conservatively
  •  Understand special considerations regarding extra-articular hip pathology
  •  Develop a targeted and streamlined exercise progression for maximal benefit
  •  Consider the complexity of human movement and how it applied to rehab

THE SHOULDER with Adam

There will be an overview of the most commonly encountered causes for shoulder pain. The emphasis will be on providing the clinician with a simple framework for classifying shoulder pain with evidence based strategies for their management. There will be special attention paid to exercise selection and optimal paramenters and progressions.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Assess and diagnose the most commonly encountered shoulder issues
  • Understand the myths around shoulder anatomy, biomechanics and pathology
  • Understand the current evidence in the reliability and utility of the assessment tests for shoulder issues
  • Examine how best to assess shoulder muscle strength, proprioception, and its kinetic chain
  • Develop a comprehensive rehab plan with an individual approach and adequate progressions

to Apr 2

Physical Therapy for Comprehensive Management of Bowel Dysfunction

  • Entropy Physiotherapy and Wellness (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Contact hours: 24

Course Overview:  A multidisciplinary approach to Bowel dysfunction or disorders allows for the management of multiple factors simultaneously including pharmacologic management, psychosocial issues, medical-surgical decisions, and physical therapy rehabilitative intervention and urogynecologic components of the patient's symptom cluster.  A linear approach can often lead to unsatisfactory management of this complex patient type because success in one discipline may require the intervention of others to be effective. Availability of multiple services simultaneously allows for a comprehensive intervention strategy tailored to each patient's needs at any given period of time throughout the rehabilitative process.

 Objectives:

Upon completion of this seminar, participants will be able to:

       

1.     Define organic lower gastrointestinal disease and lower functional gastrointestinal disorders.

2.     Recognize each discipline's role in assessment of the patient with lower gastrointestinal dysfunction or disorders including specialized testing.

3.     Identify potential medical “red flags” that warrant referral to the appropriate physician.

4.     Recognize each discipline's role in treatment of the patient with lower gastrointestinal dysfunction, especially the psychosocial component as well as the expanded roll of physical therapy management.

5.     Demonstrate appropriate physical therapy examination and intervention techniques for patients with functional bowel disorders.

6.     Identify potential “yellow flags” that warrant monitoring and potential medical co-management during the course of physical therapy care.

7.     Understand and implement an algorithm for differential diagnosis of musculoskeletal impairments, functional movement dysfunctions, and peripheral as well as central sensitization considerations when treating individuals with functional gastrointestinal disorders.

7.     Discuss the comprehensive management of patients with functional bowel disorders within a case study format.

Return to Play & The Injury Prevention Continuum - Evidence Informed Decision Making

  • Entropy Physiotherapy & Wellness (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Instructor:  Stephen Mutch

March 25-26, 2017

 With a combination of research and evidence based solutions from soccer, rugby and the world of sport this exciting workshop sets out to tackle some of the most difficult injury issues that health professionals, conditioners, sport scientists and coaches face every week in practice. 

The two-day workshop of practical sessions, discussions and theory will be a combination of the latest research and recent case studies, covering key areas ranging from managing training loads to specific injury diagnostics and return to sport. It will ask questions of what we really understand about injury prevention and injury burden. This will raise matters about context and the shared decision-making process that ought to be facilitated for optimum recovery and re-integration. As such topics such as the sociology of decision-making and self-determination theory as it can affect patients and athletes will be under discussion. There will also be an examination of mechanotransduction as it relates to how we consider load management in rehab, and how we design programmes in light of tissue stress and risk modifiers. 

As the workshop develops it will explore the three phases we deem to be important in Return to Sport, exploring the enabling of psychological conditioning rather than purely carrying out the physical competency-driven analysis. The methods involved within the three phases of participation, play or performance within the Return to Sport Continuum will ultimately affect the decision-making process in deeming athletes ‘Match Fit’. 

The focus will range from analysing how to solve movement problems in developing physical literacy, affordances and training load programs in younger populations, recreational athletes as well as within elite sports challenging participants in considering specific prehab, warm up and conditioning work that can applied at elite and amateur levels with an eye on performance outcomes. 

An extensive reference list will be supplied that will be source material for much of the content contained in the workshop in addition to clinical experiences across clinic and sporting environments and contexts. 

These sessions would be beneficial for those operating in sporting or performance settings, as well as healthcare clinics for anyone who is involved in injury, sports medicine, performance, strength and conditioning or player welfare. 

These workshops will evolve to keep pace with the breath-taking wealth of published data and papers in this changing field.
