Guest Speaker at 2014 STO Conference

2014-10-28T07:33:03+00:000000000331201410 in LCSP News

SPO Confrence 2014Nicholas Dinsdale (Clinical Director) NJD Sports Injury Centre is shown delivering his presentation at the Sports Therapy Organisation’s (STO) 2014 Conference at Birmingham University on the 4th October, 2014. The presentation focused on their unique 3-Step Integrated Bikefit-Package. NJD Sports Injury Centre have become one of the UK’s leading authorities in the analysis of scientific Bike Fitting for performance and for treating cycling related overuse injuries. In 2012, Nicholas presented the same topic at the Association of British Cycling Coaches Annual Conference in Coventry.

Inaugural 3-Step Integrated Bikefit-Package CPD Workshop
Below, the NJD Team demonstrate Rehab techniques for Gluteus Medius Rehab during their recent unique Bikefit-Package CPD Workshop. The CPD workshop was delivered in their new purpose built multi-disciplinary Centre. This was the inaugural Bikefit-Package workshop which is the only one of its kind in the UK. The workshop was FULL and proved to be a huge success. It attracted a range of Therapists from across the UK (e.g. Sports Massage Therapists, Remedial Massage Therapists, Sports Therapists and Chartered Physiotherapists) including several LCSP members.

The workshop represents scientific Bike Fitting at its best. It provides a balance of evidenced based theory with practical sessions of cycling specific musculoskeletal assessment, key rehab techniques and scientific Bike Fitting. The aim is to harmonise man-and-machine to optimise cycling comfort, reduce overuse injury and improve performance. The workshop encompasses a dual approach – designed to optimise combined outcomes associated with Sports Medicine and Sports Science.

NEW Cycling Injuries workshop
NJD Sports Injury Centre is in the process of introducing a NEW 1-day CPD workshop on Cycling Injuries. The workshop will focus on Causation, Treatment and Prevention – examining the most common cycling related overuse injuries. This workshop is designed to complement their existing unique Bikefit-Package workshop and will therefore run over the same weekend to allow those that are interested to attend both workshops together. Once again, this workshop will be unique….the ONLY one of its kind in the UK.
Anyone interested in attending the CPD workshops, or require more information, please contact Nicholas Dinsdale.

Guest Speaker at 2014 STO Conference

2014-10-01T07:51:32+00:000000003231201410 in LCSP News

LCSP member and CPD workshop provider Nicholas Dinsdale (Clinical Director) NJD Sports Injury Centre has been invited to speak at the Sports Therapy Organisation’s 2014 Conference. The conference will be held 4th October, 2014 at Birmingham University.

The presentation will focus on their unique 3-step integrated Bikefit-Package. Nicholas has become one of the UK’s leading authorities in the analysis of scientific Bike Fitting for performance and dealing with cycling related overuse injuries. In 2012, Nicholas presented the same topic at the Association of British Cycling Coaches Annual Conference in Coventry.

What is the 3-step integrated Bikefit-Package?
It is our own unique 3-step integrated Bikefit-Package designed to harmonise man-and-machine. Thus, optimise cycling comfort, cycling performance and reduce the risk of overuse injury. It helps to identify, treat and prevent common cycling related overuse injuries.

Rationale
The growing popularity in cycling
UK cycling has undergone a renaissance over the last 5 years. Moreover, cycling has become a fully inclusive activity, involving all ages, abilities and disabilities – from recreational to competition, including many health and rehabilitation aspects. According to the British Heart Foundation, just twenty minutes of cycling per week can reduce the risk of coronary artery disease by 50%. Cycling is now being recommended for rehabilitation following knee and hip replacement. As a result of the growing popularity in cycling, the demand for scientific Bike Fitting and specialist treatment of cycling related overuse injuries grows accordingly.

Background behind our 3-step integrated Bikefit-Package
Historically Bike-Fitting has been delivered by cycling mechanics or cycling technicians – purely from a mechanical perspective – simply focusing on the BIKE – thus with no emphasis on the RIDER i.e. a simple 1-step process. The key consequence being that…riders with pre-existing biomechanical and/or musculoskeletal deficits take these deficits onto the bike – this then compromises the bikefit process. We recognised a potential flaw in the simple 1-step process, thus we developed our unique 3-step integrated Bikefit-Package which focuses on RIDER & BIKE – which is specifically designed to harmonise MAN-and-MACHINE. Furthermore, although limited, it brings an evidenced-base to a process in need of change – while crucially enabling the proactive Therapist to become engaged in the Bike fitting process.

Step-1 Musculoskeletal Screening
The objective of our cycling specific comprehensive head-to-toe musculoskeletal screening protocol is designed to identify potential deficits or problems which are likely to lead to discomfort, performance loss and/or increased risk of injury. The key areas to screen for deficits include leg-length (LLD), core/pelvic and gluteals, spinal flexibility, lower-limb and foot alignment, muscle imbalance and condition of lower limb joints.

Step-2 Personal Rehab Plan
The objective of step-2, using a scientific approach, is to address the musculoskeletal deficits found in step-1. This is achieved through a range of evidence informed rehab exercises – if necessary supplemented with a range of selected manual therapy techniques.

Step-3 Discipline-Specific integrated Bikefit
The objective of step-3 is to integrate steps-1&2 and thus fully optimise the whole process. Just as bicycles are manufactured for different disciplines e.g. mountain-bike, road bike, triathlon bike; Similarly Bike Fitting should also be discipline-specific. Examples of the integrated process include – adjustments are made for true or actual LLD. Riders with restricted hip flexion often have their saddle height increased and/or shorter pedal cranks fitted.

Head of World Cycling opens New Centre

2014-05-29T08:17:09+00:000000000931201405 in LCSP News

Head of World Cycling, UCI President Brian Cookson OBE has recently taken time out of a frenzied schedule to perform the open ceremony of NJD Sports Injury Centre, which is situated in Clitheroe, Lancashire.

Over 80 people attended the open day. Many took part in various taster sessions on offer such as Boot Camp, Pilates and Yoga. Others took the opportunity to listen to professional advice on nutrition and Well-Man clinic which included advice and support for obesity, diabetes and blood pressure. The new, larger centre offers a broader range of facilities and services. This modern day, multidisciplinary approach combines all aspects of Sports Therapy/Physical Therapy with Sports Science. The centre includes clinic rooms, dedicated video analysis and computerised Bicycle Fitting, dedicated rehab area, large activity/educational room. This room enables Pilates, Yoga, Foam Rolling classes in addition to a variety of CPD workshops.

Brian, a long-standing client of the clinic, has close links with NJD Sports Injury Centre owing to their specialist work with cyclists – i.e. injury management, rehabilitation, computerised bike-fitting and aspects of strength and conditioning. The highly qualified team within the centre all hold BSc (Hons) and MSc (distinctions)-degrees associated either with Sports Science or Sports Therapy. The clinic is well known for its evidence-based (scientific) approach across its services. The team’s combined experience includes working at the World Mountain Running Championships, London Olympics and Paralympics and the former Sports Therapist to the Great Britain Cycling Teams.

After helping British Cycling avoid insolvency in 1996, Brian was credited with turning British Cycling around. Under his presidency from 1997 to 2013, in an unpaid role, British Cycling won 19 Olympic Gold medals, 28 Paralympic Gold medals and the Tour de France twice. Following an acrimonious campaign, Brian succeeded in becoming UCI president in September 2013.

The Centre aims to develop a wide range of evidence based CPD workshops in Massage, Electrotherapy, Rehab techniques and Bikefit-Package etc. The Centre has been in discussion with the local university (UCLAN) with regard to employing a newly graduated Sports Therapist.

Nick Dinsdale said “The Team are highly honoured and very grateful to Brian Cookson for taking time out to open our new Centre. Brian’s diary is FULL, finding a spare weekend was difficult, especially now that he is based in Switzerland at the UCI Headquarters. Brian did offer to open our Centre when he comes to the UK in July to start the Tour de France off – but his only availability was mid-week.”
