Management Of The Unstable Knee After A Skiing Injury

by Dr Peter Thomson and Ms Serena Stubbs


This course will explore the importance of proper management and rehabilitation of unstable knees after a skiing injury.

Dr Peter Thomson will be presenting on how best to assess knee instability and the significance of conservative management as well as the roles that the sports physician, physiotherapist and brace specialist play, and when best to refer for a surgical opinion. He will also discuss common ligamentous injuries around the knee including ACL, MCL and PCL injuries, and the posterolateral corner and posterior capsule injury.

Ms Serena Stubbs will be presenting on how knee bracing has significantly evolved over the last 5 years, i.e. it has become less restrictive and more functional, as well as a general overview of the latest in bracing technology for both ligament and cartilage injuries. Serena will give an introduction to the 'new breed' of dynamic braces for conservative management of the ACL and PCL and associated case studies.

Returning to Sport After an ACL Reconstruction

by Mr Jonathan Bell and Mr Nick Wirth


ACL reconstructions can often take a long time to heal fully and leave the patient nervous about returning to their previous levels of fitness. The decision on when a patient is completely recovered isn’t always easily defined, it requires significant testing.

This course will aim to discuss effective rehabilitation of ACL reconstructions and introduce the return to sport screening developed by Mr Jonathan Bell and Mr Nick Wirth. The return to sport screening not only assesses whether or not a patient is physically able to get back to sport but can help to prevent re-injury. It builds the patient’s, and physio’s confidence in their recovery and helps to create targeted sessional work for them to continue if they aren’t quite there yet.
