From Rehab to Performance in Team Sports: Treatment, Training & Trophies

Dan Howells, Dr Ben Rosenblatt & Remi Mobed

Teams sports it appears are becoming more attritional in nature with injury rates in contact based sports in particular rising and career lengths of players reducing. The reasons for this are never as simplistic as they may at first seem, with a multitude of factors both intentional and unintentional playing their part in this changing landscape of these sports. The playing philosophy of the Head Coach, the physical preparation programme of the Performance Director, fixture scheduling and law changes from the Governing Bodies, commercial constraints and the increasing numbers of specialist coaches and support staff who with the best of intentions are competing for a limited amount of preparation time in which to input onto the programme.

There is strong evidence but anecdotal and academic that teams which suffer the least amount of injuries and days lost from training have a greater positive correlation with successful performance. Reducing the number of injuries, the type of injuries and the time taken to recover from them can play a significant factor in the performance levels for a team and ultimately in professional sport the livelihoods of all involved. The way a backroom staff plan, implement and adjust training is one of the most significant controllable variables in the chaos of team sports, not having an integrated multi-disciplinary approach is likely to significantly reduce the team’s chances of success.

This evening we draw on the experiences of three high class performance professionals who have been part of successful teams on the international stage in Olympics World Cups and World Championships. They will be sharing their approaches to managing the risk of injury, returning players from injury, training load and working as part of a performance team and the challenges they have faced in pursuit of the trophies and medals.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to hear how these 3 great coaches have negotiated the ever-evolving world of elite sports performance to continually produce athletes that succeed at the highest levels. Their stories and lessons learnt will be valuable not just for physiotherapists/medical teams but for S&C coaches, technical coaches and anyone else interested in hearing about approaches rehabilitation and performance within elite sport.
