Sports Physiotherapy

Participation in sport is widely recognized as encouraging positive behaviours that are protective of our health and support physical and mental wellbeing across the lifespan. This course will take a strong practical focus on upskilling clinicians in the assessment, treatment and promotion of evidence-based high value care for athletes across the lifespan, from the elite athlete to the recreational athlete.   

Using the contemporary theoretically-derived Musculoskeletal Clinical Translation Framework1, it aligns with current pain science and musculoskeletal Models of Care2-4 to examine clinical cases moving from acute, simple clinical presentations through to more challenging persistent, recurrent sports-related musculoskeletal conditions.

Participants will be introduced to screening tools to assist in the early recognition of conditions that may require on-referral or specific care pathways, as well as the recognition of factors that are associated with the risk of chronicity in athletes. Clinical cases will cover spinal and peripheral musculoskeletal sports-related conditions, including capturing bony, soft tissues and nerve-related pain.  

Physiotherapists will be guided through knowledge and skills with the aim of strengthening their clinical competencies to diagnose a sports-related condition and inform a sound, contemporary evidence-based rehabilitation program that reflects each athlete’s specific functional needs and goals.

This course is funded under e2i Training Grant. First 20 Singaporean and PRs trainees will be entitled to the training grant. Funding will be subject to approval. Kindly refer to brochure for more details.
