This Interdisciplinary Masterclass brings together some of the best minds in MSK Rehabilitation, Conditioning and Research to help us redress the fundamental principles that drive adaptation and thus recovery. Importantly, we’re not just focussing on the ‘physical’, we will delve into some of the topics that may play just as an important role in recovery, but that are less well acknowledged; a holistic approach you might say.
It goes without saying that we will be taking a detailed look at physical rehabilitation, like the dose-response for strength adaptation, but we wil give equal forum to other topics. For example, when was the last time you talked about nutrition with your patients/clients? If we’re expecting the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems to adapt and recover following surgical intervention, injury and challenging rehabilitation endeavours, are we ensuring the right and sufficient nutritional intake to fuel these adaptations?
Likewise, what about the psychological needs, deficits and barriers injured individuals face? How can you tap into their motivations to achieve better buy-in? What about sleep? Does that influence recovery?
Whether your patients are looking to return to elite sport, or just normalcy without breaking down, there will be learnings for all and take-home strategies you can apply to your patients the very next day. And as this is a Masterclass, there will be plenty of interactive and practical sessions, and opportunities for discussion with the presenters.
