  • Soccer Injuries Social Media and Lead Collection Campaign

    Nearly forty pieces of social media (and assorted resources) on soccer injuries, which you can post to Facebook or Twitter using our simple inbuilt social media scheduling tool. Not only does it engage your social network viewers, but each piece of social media links to a email lead collection form where people can sign up to receive the downloadable resources, meaning it also helps you to build your email list while adding value to your viewers.

    Once they have entered their details, we collect those email details for you, and deliver them to the resources they have signed up to receive. This campaign also includes a range of 'lead magnets' (high value pieces of content) which your viewers can download once they've entered their email address (don't worry, we take care of the whole process for you). You can use the campaign to grow your email list, create engaging and informative social media pages and build your reputation and authority by publishing some super-helpful content to your social networks.

    You can download a patient leaflet, a couple of videos and three free social media images by logging in (or registering) for a free account below.

  • 5 Evidence-Based Strategies for Reducing Injury Rates in Professional Football [Article]

    Injury prevention is personal. Generic preventative exercise programmes are likely to modify some risk factors of injury, but the evidence proves that an individualised programme, designed specifically for each player, is considerably more effective. The first article in this series discussed risk factors of injury and outlined clinical tests that can screen for these risk factors, providing normative data to enable the medical team to identify those players at risk of injury. This article covers the next challenge which is to establish the best method for modifying these risk factors. It outlines the basic principles of designing an injury prevention programme, and examines the current research on the most commonly used methods in the field of injury prevention. This article contains a number of PDF exercise programmes, tables and a certificated elearning quiz.

  • How to Reduce Injury Rates in Professional Football using Surveillance and Screening [Article]

    We all know injuries are bad news in all sports, but in football an injury can have particularly far-reaching effects which is why surveillance and screening programmes are essential. Not only does an injury have an adverse affect on the player, causing a range of emotional responses that can then unmask other more serious mental health issues (see the ‘Related content’ box) but just as importantly, if the athlete is a team player which footballers obviously are, the consequences can and do escalate to affect the whole team and, even worse, its performance (1). Our job as physical therapists is to do our utmost to ensure injuries don’t happen on our watch and one of the most powerful tools we have in our armoury for achieving this is injury screening and injury surveillance. This article reviews the evidence supporting the importance of surveillance and screening programmes in football, outlines some of the evidence-based screening tests, and offers some practical steps on constructing a programme, as well as enhancing or developing an existing one. And if you have ‘seniors’ who don’t yet appreciate the significance of this area of medical care, we will also arm you with some excellent research to help you support and justify the need to implement a surveillance and screening programme for your team.

  • Proximal Biceps Tendon Rupture of the Hamstring: A Case Study [Article]

    Working in a multidisciplinary team can be frustrating and difficult at times. Creating a team requires a clear strategy with objectives and boundaries and good communication. To ensure a functioning and useful team, members must be constantly aware of their working relationships with each other and the impact they have on the player and their teammates. This case study involves an elite football player in a Premier League team with a complex hamstring injury and shows how a criteria-driven rehabilitation model is a practical approach to coordinating a multidisciplinary team and helping an athlete solve problems that are limiting their rehabilitation. The article is packed with practical tables covering most elements of the rehabilitation protocol and clearly demonstrates the effectiveness of using objective markers and criteria for progression within the rehabilitation process.

These risk factors have been classified into two groups: non-modifiable and modifiable. Additionally, the reader is provided with a detailed insight of the prevention strategies and interventions used to nullify the modifiable risk factors and ultimately reduce hamstring injury rates.
