Keynote presentation

Trish Wisbey-Roth - Getting the most from your rehab programs: retraining neurotags and virtual body for optimal recovery

As the research battle between a rehabilitation focus on functional and biological factors as opposed to psychosocial and environmental factors continues, many physiotherapists are left feeling overwhelmed and unsure how to achieve the best long term results for their patients with evidence based practice.

The aim of this presentation is to condense the varied and complex research on mind and body rehabilitation and suggest some clinical, structured and functional strategies to incorporate into rehab programs to build confidence in movement and positively influence Neurotags via neuroplasticity principles.

Trish Wisbey-Roth, FACP, is a Sydney based clinical physiotherapist with both a post graduate sports physiotherapy masters (AIS/UC) and specialisation qualifications. She completed her Sports physiotherapy specialisation in 2009 (speciality lumbo-pelvic and hip conditions) and has been involved with Australian sporting teams at the National, World Championship and Olympic level.

Trish lectures internationally in the areas of diagnosis and rehabilitation of lumbar-pelvic and hip regions with emphasis on differential diagnosis, manual treatment and exercise prescription. She continues to work clinically and is the Director of “Take Control” Active Rehabilitation in Sydney, a specialised spinal and sport rehabilitation centre. Her ability to combine extensive clinical experience, and knowledge of strategies to overcome spinal pain, led her to create the BOUNCE Back system of active rehabilitation for group and one on one rehab.
