Course: The Sporting Hamstring
Hamstring injuries remain the most prevalent injury in Australian rules football and soccer. In the past 20 years, the rate of hamstring injuries has not decreased, and there remains a 20% - 30% recurrence rate. These statistics indicate the clinical challenge of hamstring injuries. This course is designed to provide physiotherapists with a clinically-based program for the assessment and management of hamstring injuries, drawing from current research and shared experience. It aims to help physiotherapists prevent acute hamstring injuries, as well as decreasing the rate and cost of recurrent hamstring strain injuries.
Participants who would benefit from this course are Sports Physiotherapists and Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists who have intermediate to advanced experience working with sporting teams.
