About the Injury Rehab Network

Following the success of the Injury Rehab Network in 2019 and 2020 we are extremely excited to announce plans for a schedule of monthly events in 2021 in partnership with BASRaT. The events will include talks from exceptional guest speakers and will be online initially. In the spring and summer, we hope to return to face to face events and will also have a live stream.

“The Steroplast Injury Rehab Network is a superb and innovative idea that can only benefit therapists. To provide an opportunity for local multidisciplinary therapists to learn from each other and others, whilst networking and introducing people that can help each other is simply groundbreaking. Having had the pleasure to attend a recent event it, the positive discussion and energy in the room was palpable. Steroplast have truly hit it out of the park with this!” – Mike James – The Endurance Physio and Director at Sports Injury Fix

Sterosport is an arm of Steroplast Healthcare dedicated to supporting sports professionals in Manchester and the surrounding area. In 2019, Sterosport established the Injury Rehab Network as a means for sports injury professionals to network, share ideas and collaborate. The events provide a fantastic opportunity for Continuous Professional Development (CPD) for any therapists, physios, rehabilitators, or other sports professionals to keep up to date with the latest thinking, developments, and evidence in the sector.

The format of each event is a keynote speech, followed by a discussion and facilitated networking. The Injury Rehab Network organisers work hard to source well known authorities or personalities in sport. Previous speakers include endurance cyclist Josh Quigley, Paralympian Hannah Dines, leading physiotherapist Dave Fevre, Academic and elite sport rehabilitator Lee Herrington, Prof Shah Khan (The Scan Doctor), Consultant hand, wrist and elbow surgeon Mr David Murray and Andy Hosgood, co-founder of Summit Physiotherapy.
