Title: Injury Profiling and Return to play for the Recreational Athlete

A key question asked by most injured recreational athelte is - When can I return to my Sport?

Rehabilitation for return to training is an interdisciplinary, specific and individualised process that is geared towards the athlete’s optimal availability for competition after a sports injury. Return to play must be agreed upon on the basis of objective information on the recovery stage of the injury, the state of fitness, and the athlete’s own perception.

 

Learning Outcomes:

 

  • Be able to determine psychosocial, functional testing, and pathology specific factors to determine safe and efficient return to sport, following lower limb injuries
  • Overview of performance markers, to assess suitability on return to play in hip, knee and foot and ankle injuries
  • Subjective and Objective Markers to guide key decision on return to running, high-level plyometrics and contact sports
