The NEC Therapy Expo 2021
Posted on 31st January 2022 at 14:40
Our therapist, Georgina, took some time out of her diary before the Christmas break to attend the two-day Therapy Expo 2021, at the NEC, Birmingham.
Therapy Expo is designed to bring clinicians such as Sports Therapists, Physiotherapists, Osteopaths and Chiropractors together to update and refresh each others’ knowledge and network. The expo included several lectures and live demonstrations of some of the latest treatments, rehabilitation techniques, and current research in the therapy field.
During the exhibition, Georgina had the opportunity to catch up with and attend the lecture of Mr. Tom Allardyce, The founder of RehabMyPatient. Tom’s software is used daily at Fire & Earth to create your exercise, rehabilitation and stretching programmes.
Georgina also attended an interesting lecture presented by Mr. Paul Trikha, a leading knee consultant in the UK. Mr. Trikha talked through the management of the injured knee and the key features required for a successful rehabilitation programme.
Did you know the best treatment for an osteoarthritic knee is to load the joint through rehabilitation?
Another learning opportunity came when Mr. Robert Crowley and Ms. Sonia Fierro took the cohort through the best ways to rehabilitate a client back to ‘gym fit’. The demonstration included having to ask tough questions behind someone’s day to day life, and how these small factors can play a huge role in the success of speeding up their rehabilitation from injury.
Georgina thoroughly enjoyed her time at Therapy Expo and has taken the wealth of knowledge learned and implemented it into her day-to-day clinic.
We’re always looking out for ways to improve client’s recovery and long-term results. To book in for your session with our sports therapist, contact us today.
