Following the 2010 publication of the ACPSEM Acute Management of Soft Tissue Injuries its authors recommended the inclusion of “Optimal Loading” by practitioners to enhance biological healing. This October the Second World Congress of Sports Physical Therapy brings us right up to date with the latest cutting edge knowledge, delivered by experts from across the world and hosted by the 2010 authors.

This MUST ATTEND event will examine optimal loading for various tissue types and systems e.g. muscle/ligament /tendon/bone/neurological, and present each system moving through:

  • The hard science
  • Translating science into practice
  • Worked examples/ case studies from elite sport environments.

Should I Attend?

If you are one of the following, then YES, this Congress is for you:

  • If you’re tasked with the physical preparation of athletes for competition e.g. Coaches,  S and C personnel, Sports Scientists.
  • If you’re a Medic or Therapist who prescribes rehabilitative exercise/load in the management of musculoskeletal injury e.g. Outpatient Physiotherapist/Private Practitioner/Podiatrist/Osteopath.
  • If you’re a Sports Medicine Professional.

Why Should I Attend?

ACPSEM have been instrumental in developing the concept of Optimal Loading in the management of injury and this congress takes this concept to a new level. (Also earning you 16 CPD hours)

Professionals will not only get the most up to date rationale on applying optimal loading in practice, but will gain an understanding of the mechanisms underpinning the correct application of load to generate therapeutic outcomes.
