Sterosport are delighted to announce the return to a face-to-face Injury Rehab Network event in collaboration with BASRaT and UA92. Save the date (Monday 22nd November, 5pm – 8pm) for this in-person event, taking place at UA92 in Manchester, not to be missed by sports rehabilitation professionals and students.
The highlight of the event will be presentations from leading professional football physiotherapists Diane Ryding and David Fevre.
Diane Ryding is Head Physiotherapist for the Foundation and Youth Development Phases at Manchester United Football Club (MUFC). Diane received her BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy from Manchester University in 2000 and worked in the NHS for the next decade. In 2010 she received her MSc in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy from Manchester Metropolitan University.
Diane has been involved in academy football since 2004 initially working as a Casual Academy Physiotherapist at MUFC, progressing to her current role in 2010. During her time with MUFC, Diane has seen a significant expansion in the Academy system, managing the increasing medical requirements of an evolving Academy programme. Her role is to ensure that paediatric injuries are managed appropriately whilst considering growth and maturation and ensuring that the long-term athletic development of the player takes precedent over short-term gains.
Diane is a Visiting Senior Lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University. She is an FA Affiliate Medical Tutor for the English Football Association and has taught international sports trauma management courses for SPORTS ER. Diane has recently had three chapters published in ‘A Comprehensive Guide to Sports Physiology and Injury Management.’ These chapters introduce concepts around working in an elite football academy along with diagnosing and managing paediatric injuries. Diane is currently involved in supporting research around Cardiac Profiling in Academy footballers.
Diane’s presentation, “Physiotherapy in an elite football academy: Beyond injuries!” will focus on the growth and maturation of young athletes and the soft skills required by sports rehabilitation professionals to provide a child-centred approach.
David Fevre is currently working as a freelance clinician/ lecturer in physiotherapy and sports injury rehabilitation. He has consultancy roles with several European, Premiership, Championship and EFL football clubs and is on the teaching faculty for both the Football Association (FA) and Rugby Football League (RFL). He was Head of Sports Medicine for Blackburn Rovers FC until January 2017, having been in post since July 1999. Prior to this, he was previously the Chartered Physiotherapist for Wales (2002-2005), Manchester United FC (1994-1999), Great Britain Rugby League (1990-1994), Wigan RL (1989-1994) and Leigh RL (1984-1989). He worked in the NHS immediately after gaining his Chartered status and then within several sports injury clinics based in the private hospital sector prior to these full-time posts in elite sport.
He lectures extensively internationally and in the UK on subjects related to sports injury rehabilitation, has had articles/research papers published in several rehabilitation related journals and is the author of the book ‘Collision Sports Injury and Repair.’ In 2012, he was invited to the European (London) and World (Belgium) Soccer conferences to present oral abstracts on his research work in professional football. He is also an honorary lecturer at both Salford and Manchester University and was awarded the ‘Outstanding Contribution to Professional Football’ award in 2014 by the Football Medical Association (FMA) and ‘The Fabrice Muamba Outstanding Contribution to Professional Football Award in the NW of England’ in 2015.
David’s presentation “No Time to be Injured – Prequel and Sequel Included” will focus on the level of care required for the athlete from the medical team. David will consider injury prevention (prequel) and possible injury reoccurrence (sequel).
The event will also include presentations from Physiquipe and Winback Medical about new and innovative products for sports rehabilitation and the opportunity to network with delegates, students and staff from UA92.
