The Sporting Mind

How much do we understand about the influence of the brain on our athletes?  And how can you influence it as a practitioner working in clinics or sporting teams/organisations?

This year’s ACPSEM 2018 symposium focuses on that crucial relationship with the latest science and practical techniques!

Learn how to make a difference in your Practice: understand how to get better and more effective results.

And, of course, network with other leading practitioners in sport!

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • How advances in neurophysiology, pain and exercise science understanding connects the evidence with practical opportunities to embrace techniques easily in the week following the event.
  • The musculo-skeletal potential of tendon rehab due to neuroplasticity changes of appropriate exercise. Learning about assessment and management strategies from what is already known about exercise-induced changes linked to cortical mapping, using shoulder injuries as an exciting and practical example.
  • How the analysis of behaviours/actions offer insight into the decision-making processes taking place in the brain, and how virtual reality might help shape some of the future rehab in sport -and see how it is already in use!
  • How recognised physios and pain coaches reconcile pain science, sensorimotor-training and mindful practice with hands-on treatment for athletes in pain
  • The significant relationship between poor sleep and lower general health, increased stress and increased confusion, and how these factors may interact with each other. Learn how monitoring of and interventions to enhance sleep may be required to improve athletes’ wellbeing and performance.
  • Why behaviours of the support staff are key in rehabilitation and performance, with recent examples from one of the biggest clubs in football!

Is it for me?

If you are a primary healthcare practitioner who is looking for increasing understanding of what is known about the role the mind plays in rehab, and how we can maximise this.

You want cutting-edge science mixed with examples from the coal face in elite sport, but with applications to the high street clinic or gym where the couch to 5k is more common than televised performance.

It’s an event suited to all practitioners, irrespective of experience and levels of psychology, orthopaedic and neurological rehabilitation training. It will enhance your current techniques with evidence-based and clinically relevant protocols, aimed at improving your patient athlete outcomes no matter what level they are exercising at.

It’s ideal for coaches, physical preparation personnel and therapy staff at all levels of sport. Develop a greater understanding of the importance that the brain and the mind plays in addition to physical attributes!

For added value you also get a high quality CPD
