Injury Management Workshop

Musculo-Skeletal Refresher Workshop

If an injury has occurred, be confident in recognising the symptoms that tell you what structures have been damaged and how severely. Being able to determine if a person should stop or adapt their activity or are safe to continue without further risk of injury is an essential skill for anyone who coaches sport or trains people in fitness and exercise, as is knowing what to do if an injury has happened; making the right decisions to support the body’s natural repair, speed the recovery process and reduce any potential long term impact of an injury.

Begin by reviewing the basics of major muscle locations and actions, then expand on this, looking at the inter-relationship of the muscles, fascia, joints, neural control, adaptation and habitual movement patterns. Discuss the effects these relationships have on movement, performance and rehabilitation. See things differently. Bring your knowledge, your ideas and explore the concepts of how muscles really work so you can approach sport, training, treatments and rehabilitation in a new and integrated way.

Who is this workshop for? Anyone who has a personal or occupational interest in the effective management of injuries. Health and fitness professionals including coaches, fitness instructors and personal trainers.

Who is this workshop for? Anyone with a personal or occupational interest in learning more about how muscles really function. Health and fitness professionals including coaches, fitness instructors, personal trainers, sports & massage therapists, osteopaths and Physiotherapists.

Nutrition and Weight Management Workshop

Pain Management & Rehabilitation Workshop

This eye opening workshop will provide you with easy to understand information about the mysterious and complicated world of nutrition. Learn about healthy eating and successful weight management instead of the ‘media sales pitch’.

Learn how to manage pain or be confident in advising others on what they can realistically achieve.

Get the facts! Look at what’s really in your foods and how the body uses what we eat.

Stress Management Workshop

Stress has become such a commonly used word, many of us overlook its implications. We ignore its warning signs such as regular headaches, raised blood pressure and poor sleep quality, often taking medications to control these symptoms. Everyone can cope with varying degrees of stress, but not when our coping mechanisms are compromised or if we experience sudden changes to our health or lifestyle. This workshop aims to help you to understand this primitive defense mechanism, identify personal stressors and develop effective coping mechanisms so you can prevent stress being a dominating feature of your or someone else’s life.

Who is this workshop for? Anyone who suffers from the detrimental effects of stress, regardless of its cause. Businesses looking to improve the health, well-being and productivity of their employees. Health and fitness professionals including coaches, fitness instructors, personal trainers and therapists. Price ÂŁ120
