Event description

Description


ACL reconstructions can often take a long time to heal fully and leave the patient nervous about returning to their previous levels of fitness. The decision on when a patient is completely recovered isn’t always easily defined, it requires significant testing.

This course will aim to discuss effective rehabilitation of ACL reconstructions and introduce the return to sport screening developed by Mr Jonathan Bell and Mr Nick Wirth. The return to sport screening not only assesses whether or not a patient is physically able to get back to sport but can help to prevent re-injury. It builds the patient’s, and physio’s confidence in their recovery and helps to create targeted sessional work for them to continue if they aren’t quite there yet.

Abour Mr Jonathan Bell FRCS (Orth)

Mr Bell FRCS, is a specialist knee surgeon whose expertise covers all aspects of the knee, including sports injuries, ligament reconstruction, tendinopathy and degenerative conditions.

A leader in his field, he is much in demand, particularly with all calibre of sports people, from the occasional jogger to the professional athlete. With his research dedicated to minimally invasive techniques, he is vastly experienced with arthroscopic surgery and reconstruction of ligament injuries.

Mr Bell is also an expert in advanced joint preservation and joint replacement techniques. Above all, his clinical approach is focused on helping the active patient remain active.

He has a real passion for skiing and is heavily involved in the treatment of skiers of all levels – from beginner to Olympic standard. His recovery programmes even involve him accompanying patients on their return to the slopes.



Abour Mr Nick Wirth BSc (Hons) MCSP & ACPSEM

Nick graduated in Physiotherapy from Brighton University in 1999 and went on to work in the NHS for 6 years, specialising in orthopaedics and musculo-skeletal out-patients, before moving full-time into the private sector in 2006.

Since 2006 Nick has worked at a leading LTA-affiliated High Performance Tennis Academy, assessing, treating and managing the musculo-skeletal injuries of the scholarship and pro-academy players in conjunction with the strength and conditioning, coaching and sports psychology teams.

Nick has also been heavily involved with set-up and provision of the twice yearly injury prevention player screening programme. The high volume of tennis players screened over ten years gives Nick an excellent knowledge and insight into the anatomy, mechanics and management of tennis players and their injuries.

Nick has great experience in junior and senior players and has a particular interest in adolescent sports injuries through his involvement with the Academy. Nick takes great pride in his work and ensures that each person is treated as an individual, using the resources of sports medicine doctors, radiologists and orthopaedic consultants where appropriate.

The complexity and demands of tennis as a sport requires Nick to very thoroughly assess his patients, as the source of a problem may not always be in the area of pain. Nick feels that this approach has been the key to him being able to deal with players that may have been seen by multiple therapists and when dealing with often complex issues.

Nick has undertaken extensive post-graduate education to further his knowledge and is currently planning to complete his Masters degree in Sports Injury Management at Brighton University.
