Webinar: Sports Symposium

Sport your CPD proudly and book onto our comprehensive and holistic masterclass on the theme of sports!

Over two dates, Saturday 6th and Saturday 13th November, seven speakers of different specialties will be exploring a range of topics to help your patients, whether amateur or professional sportspeople. They will be delving into nutrition, hormones, musculoskeletal and neurological injuries, and other conditions which can be found in, or developed as a result of, participation in sport.

Take away 8 hours’ group learning CPD and in-depth knowledge of a wide range of conditions associated with sport.


We encourage you to join live to get the full benefit of our interactive experience. However, if you can’t make the live session, the talks will be recorded, providing we have speakers' permission, and made available to those booked on afterwards. 

We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.

Saturday 6th November:

Sports Nutrition for Optimal Performance & Recovery - Dr Kunle Odetoyinbo, Consultant Performance And Health Specialist 

Nutrition is intrinsically linked to our physiology and has the power to influence the plasticity of the human body. Whilst inappropriate nutrition in sport has the potential to cause ill health and injury, optimised dietary habits have the potential to elevate sporting performance and adaptation to training. Dr Odetoyinbo will be exploring how nutrition has a significant role to play in the preparation for, participation in and recovery from training, competition and exercise. His wealth of expertise and experience in performance medicine will inform the talk invaluably, with advice on sporting requirements and nutrition for the individual’s lifestyle. 


Optimising the Diagnosis and Management of Patients with Back Pain - Professor Hasan Tahir, Consultant Physician and Rheumatologist, and Mrs Sian Bamford, Advanced Practice Physiotherapist

Collaboratively and from a multidisciplinary perspective, Professor Hasan Tahir and Mrs Sian Bamford will be exploring inflammatory spinal conditions which can occur in athletes and amateur sportspeople. Improve your understanding of how to spot the signs of conditions, such as ankylosing spondylitis, their pathophysiologies, and diagnosis to differentiate from mechanical back pain. We will also be delving into how and when an appropriate referral to a specialist is required.


My 5 Favourite Ankle and Foot Clinical Signs: A masterclass to enhance your clinical examination - Mr Sam Singh, Consultant Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Surgeon

A remarkably large number of foot and ankle conditions can be diagnosed by clinical examination. The focus of this talk by Mr Sam Singh will be to understand and learn the best-practice examination techniques to carry out on your patients for accurate diagnosis. We will be delving into five conditions: ankle impingement, ankle instability, peroneal tendon pathologies, Morton’s neuroma, and big toe joint pathologies. Conservative and operative treatment routes will also be explored.

Saturday 13th November:

Concussion & Head Injury in Sport - Dr Ben Turner, Consultant Neurologist

This talk will focus on the neurological aetiology and results of concussion and head injury in sport. Dr Ben Turner will be delving into the signs to spot, whether on or off the pitch, and how to diagnose concussion. This will include what clinicians can do for patients with persistent or worsened symptoms, also known as post-concussion syndrome. Exploring traumatic head injury, Dr Turner will be helping us to understand the consequences and impact on the brain. He will look at the long-term sequelae, and how you can help your patients manage the effects.


Adolescent Sports & Performance: An Endocrine Perspective - Dr Nicky Keay, Honorary Fellow & Sports And Dance Endocrinologist

Exercise is very important for health, throughout life. However, there are special considerations for adolescents when it comes to exercise training for this to be beneficial and not detrimental to endocrine networks. Dr Nicky Keay will explore strategies for male and female adolescents to train in a way that is in harmony with their hormone networks and optimise performance moving into adulthood.


Strength You Can Use: Modern Myofascial Concepts in Sports Physiotherapy - Mr Francesco Contiero, Physiotherapist & Osteopath

From a joint physiotherapy and osteopathic perspective, Mr Francesco Contiero will be utilising his expertise and experience in both areas to inform this talk. We will be exploring challenges to traditional physiotherapy practices led by the latest evidence on pain science, particularly in terms of myofascial or referred pain. Practical applications of myofascial research for sports rehabilitation will be examined, such as gentle stretching, exercise, massage, posture training and ultrasound. Mr Contiero will also be reviewing patient-centred practice with evidence-based support.
