the world of rehabilitation, allied health and injury management so
this session is a great addition to our program.

Simon is a graduate of Adelaide University where he gained a
Bachelor Degree in Science with majors in Physiology and Zoology.
His further qualification in Podiatry was gained at the University
of South Australia.

Simon holds postgraduate fellowships in Sports Podiatry with the
Australian Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine and in Sport
Sciences with Sports Medicine Australia – and we are delighted to

Here is just some of what Simon covers in the great new session:

Why many current injury assessment techniques are ineffective.

How to quickly get to the root of the injury every time.

Why one common patella femoral assessment technique is useless
and what to use instead of this.

How to quickly differentiate good motor patterns from bad ones
in the clinical setting.

Why we should remove the term “overpronation” from our rehab
vocabulary and why the term is so flawed.

The true role of gluteus Maximus and Medius – and how our
current understanding of muscle function are inadequate in injury
rehabilitation and assessment

Why our current assessment techniques miss a huge amount of
specific data that can help us identify the problem quickly and
easily.

The one test you need to do on almost every patient you see
before you even get them on the table.

The concept of “Frontal Plane Projection Angle” and how this is
correlated to increased risk or lower limb injuries.

Why the knee is a “dumb joint” and what that means to us a
health professionals.

Why women are between 2 and 8 times more likely to suffer an
ACL injury compared to men.

How prescribing an orthotic may be the last thing you should do
in treating patella femoral pain.

The key indicators of future injury and how to determine
correctly is an athlete is at risk of injury or not.

How a subtle footstrike issue in a national 800m runner led to
significant lower limb problems.

The key muscle implicated in patella tendon injury and why it
is not what you think it is.

Why thinking in classic anatomical terms is not effective in
dynamic assessment.

The “ski boot conundrum” and how this impacts on injury risk
for athletes.

Why 90% of clients with medial tibial stress issues have a
biomechanical deficiency and the key single deficiency that causes
this problem.

The most important problem to look for in runners and how to
test it.

The 7 step protocol you can use immediately that can
dramatically increase the success of your treatment programs.

Plus Much More.
