LCSP Annual General Meeting

15th December 2015 in Courses, LCSP News

john sharkeyAGM will be held on Saturday June 25th 2016. It was very apparent from the massive positive feedback we received from the last visit of John Sharkey that not only did you want him to return but you wished for more time for him to expand on his work and even to allow for hands on time also.

Well it has been arranged, despite John Sharkey only arriving back from an extended lecture tour in Australia in June he has agreed to come directly back to the LCSP and present again, only this time to accommodate the requests there will be an full extra day to allow for practical work and demonstrations. If you are interested then you will have to book early as this event will sell out. Those members who were fortunate enough to hear him in June of this year will be only too aware of how interesting, refreshing and innovative his ideas are backed up with research.

John will be presenting on the Saturday afternoon and then again all day on the Sunday. This will also include some practical activity. So book the dates in your diary now and if you wish to attend I would advise you to book NOW as this opportunity will sell out, there is a strictly limited number of places available and there has already been interest shown by other organisations asking if I can release space to their members.

Caradoc online shop

19th May 2015 in LCSP News

CARADOC-SHROPDOC-32Massage and soft tissue therapy practitioners can now access a one-stop online shop selling core products at discounted rates.

LCSP Register is a member of buying consortium Caradoc Medical Services, meaning practitioners can access the savings from consortium suppliers.

Caradoc is a not-for-profit organisation and it is free to join the buying group with no membership fees. The consortium started off supporting GP practices but was keen to widen membership and saw opportunities to support therapists.

Suppliers cover a wide range of products and services including stationery, medical consumables, uniforms, telephony solutions, HR and employment support and much more.

The Caradoc Shop focuses on key products under three categories – medical supplies and equipment, stationery and office supplies and treatment room and janitorial supplies.

It is aimed at sole practitioners and small businesses and members that cannot find what they are looking for in the shop can contact one of over 80 Caradoc suppliers for further assistance.

Peter Masters, of Caradoc Medical Services, said: “For practitioners who are self-employed or who own a very small practice, essential supplies and equipment for the treatment room can be very costly. As Caradoc is a consortium we are able to use a collective buying power to bring down costs on key items required by LCSP members. And because we have many practitioners as members we decided to create a specific online shop via our website so that it is easily accessible.”

The online shop is a pilot scheme by Caradoc Medical Services and feedback from members is encouraged to ensure that changes can be made to ensure the service is as useful as it can be to members. The Caradoc Shop can be found here http://www.caradocmedicalservices.co.uk/caradoc-shop

Guest Speaker at 2014 STO Conference

28th October 2014 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

1st October 2014 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.
