Top Hamstring researcher Jack Hickey from Australia will present and discuss his latest studies regarding hamstring rehabilitation with you.
In this webinar, you will learn how to implement objective assessments for hamstring rehab. Furthermore, you will learn how to improve your clinical reasoning for hamstring rehabilitation so that your patients/athletes are able to return to sport faster and safer
- Improve the practitioner’s ability to implement objective assessments and progress exercise in the presence of pain during hamstring rehabilitation
- Therapists will gain a greater understanding of the relevance of different clinical assessments for hamstring strain injury and learn how to safely and effectively implement progressive exercise during rehabilitation in the presence of pain
Speaker: Jack Hickey
Dr Jack Hickey is a lecturer and researcher in musculoskeletal and sports injury rehabilitation within the School of Behavioural and Health Sciences at ACU, Melbourne.
