This course is a part of the Sporting UpperLimb Series, you can buy the whole serie or only this last episode on complex cases!
We always hope that injuries are straightforward and if we had to use a biomedical approach, then this would be the case. However, injuries are not homogenous and that should not come as a surprise considering we are managing people and not just structures.
So how can we better understand complexity to simplify management. Do we consider what diagnosis versus prognosis means? Do we plan effectively, whilst quantifying loading? Do we account for optimal rehab dosage? Do we consider psychological stressors which might impact on injury resolution and re-injury? Do we consider psychological readiness, together with physical readiness? Do we manage athlete expectations, and do we know what athletes really expect from a rehabilitation approach?
In this episode we aim to cover all these topics and use real case scenarios to further help you appreciate how this knowledge can enhance the understanding of complexity. Further, this episode draws from all previous webinars, ensuring a positive conclusion to this series
