Paediatric pathology and working with children are rarely covered at undergraduate level, yet many jobs in the NHS, private practice and within elite sport require you to see sporty chikdren. This highly practical, evidenced based course covers the key aspects of working with active kids with apophyseal injuries, lumbar bone stress injuries and how to get kids to engage with exercises and prepare them for a safe return to sport

We will explore the changes in the brain after injury, and how our traditional strength and power-based approaches to return to play testing might not address these changes. This highly practical course will introduce techniques to reduce visual dominance and how to add cognitive and motor challenges to adequately prepare children for the chaos or the sporting environment.
