Football ankle injury

Lateral Ankle Injuries in Professional Football

Steve’s presentation, “Lateral ankle injuries in professional football,” will take work from his PhD at Imperial College London into ankle injuries in professional football. The lateral ankle ligament injury is one of the most prevalent injuries in professional football.  Often dismissed as a minor innocuous injury they are one of the most recurrent injuries which suggests rehabilitation is often rushed or incomplete, and athletes return to sport too early. The presentation hopes to give an up to date overview of the epidemiology, the current rehabilitation strategies, and the future direction of the management of these injuries.

Delegates are asked to pay a donation of £10 to attend this event. All income will go to Manchester based charity, The Running Bee Foundation. Through The Running Bee Foundation events, the charity champions health and wellbeing initiatives, promotes the benefits of an active lifestyle and helps in the fight to reduce childhood obesity.
