September 2016 Happy Hour: Return to Play

For the September 2016 Happy Hour, we discussed return to play strategies in a large group that included special guests John Pryor and Vern Gambetta. Topics included:

  • Seeing injury as an opportunity to take a step forward;
  • Common problems in injury rehabilitation plans;
  • Rehabbing with an inclusive rather than exclusive (focusing on what they can’t do) approach;
  • Using milestones and progression in injury rehabilitation;
  • Case Study: Experiences with injuries and rehabilitation on the Japanese rugby world cup team;
  • Preparing the mind to get back on the field post-injury;
  • Weighing the decision to have surgery;
  • Getting honest communication on pain from injured athletes; and
  • Building robustness to prevent injury.
