Concussion

-Being able to carry out a baseline assessment using SCAT 5

-Better understanding of concussion and how it may present - both pitchside and in practice

-Being able to advise appropriate return to play timescale for patients

Hip and groin injuries

-To understand the components of the rehabilitation process and the importance of these when structuring a rehabilitation programme

-To be able to identify common movement patterns associated with athletic groin pain and develop rehabilitation strategies to address these effectively

Managing the injured golfer

-To understand the limitations of biomechanical models for pain and performance

-To understand the ‘skill’ of golf and the ‘movement’ of golf

-To understand what a functional/ processed based approach is

-To review the content using practical examples

About the course tutors

Simeon Milton

Simeon graduated in 1993 and has worked since then in private practice. He has worked with rugby squads from club to international level and cricket teams from club to county level. He has worked as the Osteopath at European PGA Golf tournaments and was Clinical Lead Osteopath for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and the 2017 World Athletics and Para-Athletics. He has lectured to undergraduates in Osteopathic Sports Care and Pitchside Trauma, most recently at the Royal Society of Medicine explaining and detailing Osteopaths' role at the 2012 Games. He was the only overseas Osteopath invited to work in the central Medical Team’s Polyclinic in Rio 2016. He was the Osteopath to the Baku European Games in 2015, the Muslim Solidarity Games and the Turkmenistan Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games both in 2017. Simeon received an OSCA Fellowship in July 2013 and the iO’s first ever Presidents medal in 2016 for his work in Osteopathic Sports Care.

Elliott Clarke

He currently works at Harlequins Rugby Club where he leads the rehabilitation of long-term injured players and has developed extensive expertise in structuring rehabilitation programmes focused on returning players to full performance. Elliott has a special interest in lower limb biomechanics and the clinical reasoning of exercise selection/implementation.

Andrew Nicholettos

Andy has played golf for 20 years. He has devoted his clinical career to helping golfers prevent and manage injury, and improve performance, using a simplified and scientifically credible approach that combines diverse areas of practice including sports medicine and mindfulness based practice. He is he one of a select number of certified Nike Golf Performance Specialists to operate in the world, and in 2017 published a movement in golf performance.

His golf oriented clinical career began with a first class degree in Sport and Exercise Science. It was here that Andy developed an interest in strength and conditioning practice, sport and tissue biomechanics, and the relationship between exercise, health and disease.

Following this, Andy completed a Master’s degree in Osteopathy at the British School of Osteopathy (now the University College of Osteopathy), and was awarded the school’s prestigious Silver Medal Award, and the RK Hardy Prize for obtaining the highest academic and clinical marks in his year group, and for research excellence respectively.

During his clinical training, Andy spent two years working with the musculoskeletal physiotherapy team at Kings College London, where he explored the effects of different load magnitudes on the laxity of the anterior cruciate ligament.

Andy amalgamated his broad interest in sport, musculoskeletal and exercise medicine with a second Master’s degree in Sport and Exercise Medicine at University College London. Andy is also certified in, and is a Fellow of Applied Functional Science from the prestigious Gray Institute.

Since he qualified, Andy has worked in both NHS and private settings. He was one of the first osteopaths in the country to work in an extended scope role, where he developed an interest in persistent pain problems, and advanced orthopaedics of the shoulder and knee.

As an extension to life in clinical practice, Andy has lectured nationally on the application of pain science to sport performance, and on functional strength and conditioning practice. Andy has contributed to several peer reviewed articles spanning orthopaedics and exercise physiology, and has edited papers for the International Journal of Osteopathic Medicine and Manual Therapy.
