During October Andrew attended the Australian Physiotherapy Conference which was held at the Melbourne convention centre. It was a jam packed event over 4 days with both aussie and overseas speakers presenting latest research in the sports and musculoskeletal fields. Some of Australia’s best athletes were also present for group workshops.

As payback for his ‘time off’ Andrew has been passing on knowledge to the staff @ SMPC, who are now up to speed on topics such as: Correction of scapular mechanics in the overhead athlete;  prognosis of osteoarthritis following ACL reconstruction; management of hamstring muscle strain injuries in the Australian Football League; improvement in achilles tendon structure in elite athletes; barriers and facilitators relating to exercise rehabilitation among people with lumbar disc herniation; back Injuries in Rowing: New Moves for Prevention
