2 Part Series: Dr. Paul Read & Gus Morrison on reverse engineering when rehabilitating injured athletes to handle the demand of high intensity sports 4CPD


SKU: RE-007 Category:

Embark on this transformative journey with
Dr. Paul Read (UCL, UK) & Gus Morrison (UCL,UK) in this online series designed exclusively for rehabilitation clinicians. Let them guide you through a dynamic process that involves pinpointing the pivotal performance indicators within the realm of rehabilitation specifically for the lower limb & shoulder.

This knowledge is crucial for effectively designing and implementing targeted rehabilitation, training and reconditioning programs for injured athletes as part of the return to sport continuum (more detail below).

Lower Limb:

An understanding of biomechanical principles that relate to human movement and how to analyze the demands of an athlete’s sport are a requirement for sports science and medical/clinical practitioners. In this series, we will initially discuss how to examine relevant sporting movements and physical characteristics as part of a comprehensive needs analysis. This will form part of a process of reverse engineering and performance modelling. We will then critically analyse various testing protocols used in lower limb return to play scenarios and how using technology and objective data capture can optimize this process.  Guidelines to interpret and analyze the data will be provided so that we can profile our athletes to monitor their performance over time and to enhance return to sport readiness.

Finally, reconditioning activities will be introduced to target residual deficits commonly shown following injury with practical opportunities provided to ensure confidence in effective coaching implementation. Collectively this workshop will enable delegates to design targeted training and reconditioning programs following injury as part of the return to sport continuum.


Aim in this series:

1) analyze the sport demands to identify the key biomechanical requirements and injury epidemiology for these sports;

2) present a test battery to examine the components identified in the needs analysis; and

3) develop a progressive sequence of exercises related to each of the assessments performed, which can then be used to formulate an athletic training program.
