“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, 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

Professor Lennard Funk has kindly shared his expertise at Injury Rehab Network events in 2021 and said, “It has been an absolute pleasure to have been invited to teach on the Injury Rehab Network events. I have been impressed by the level of professionalism and organisation of Andrew Watson (from Steroplast) and Oliver Coburn (from BASRaT) in organising and running the online events. The promotion via social media and presentation on their website is superb. It was nice to see that it included a huge range of individuals involved in sports medicine, from coaches to surgeons, from around the world. They managed to draw massive audiences of over 500 delegates. The range of questions were expansive and the expert moderation ensured that there was something of relevance for everyone. The post-event blog is a nice touch and very professionally produced. The Injury Rehab Network has set a new level for online events! Thanks for all your efforts for our community.”

The format of each event is a keynote speech, followed by a discussion and facilitated networking.
