About the Injury Rehab Network
Through the work of Sterosport, an arm of Steroplast Healthcare with sports rehabilitators, physios, therapist and the wider sport sector it was clear that there was a need to help this community to collaborate. So in 2019, the Injury Rehab Network was born – a group which offers professionals who work with sports injuries the opportunity to network, share ideas and collaborate through regular free events. The group is dedicated to the support of sports professionals in Manchester and the surrounding area. The format of each event is a keynote speech, delivered by a known authority or personality in sport, followed by a discussion and facilitated networking. Previous speakers include Hannah Dines, the Paralympian, scientist and writer and Mike James AKA The Endurance Physio and Director at Sports Injury Fix.
