Preparing Athletes for Returning to Sport Webinar

Preparing Athletes for the Rigours of Returning to Sport After Injury Webinar

This presentation will outline the return to play rehabilitation protocols for professional team sports that work. An investigation of sports rehab outcomes highlights the challenge of preparing athletes for the rigors of returning to sport after injury. In this presentation Cameron will discuss the available evidence and provide personal insights and experiences gained working across three professional football codes to outline what best practice sports rehabilitation should look like and how you can best achieve it in your setting.

Cameron will go through real world examples to support your return to play program for each phase of the rehabilitation journey, loading considerations for return to play including the range, intensity, speed and complexity that can be applied, and explain how physios work with exercise specialists and a multi-disciplinary team to develop a rehabilitation protocol. Several examples will be examined, including hamstring strain, ACL reconstruction, GHJ reconstruction and achillies rupture.

Presented by Mr Cameron Dyer

Cameron is the current head physiotherapist at the NSW Waratahs. Cameron has a special interest in sports physiotherapy and athlete rehabilitation. Cameron has published his original research on movement screening and injury risk in elite adolescent rugby league players and presented for multiple professional organisations on the topic of sports rehabilitation.
