The British Association of Sport Rehabilitators and Trainers (BASRaT) is the UK regulator and professional association for sport rehabilitators. On Friday 14th February, the University of Nottingham hosted its third student BASRaT conference.
What is the student BaSRat conference?
The student BASRaT conference allows sports injury and rehabilitation students from all over the UK to participate in a day of continued professional development via workshops and talks from keynote speakers.
How were Scoliosis SOS involved?
This year, our Birmingham satellite therapist Sian - a University of Nottingham graduate - delivered an educational talk to conference attendees.
Sian's speech covered:
- Scoliosis education
- Screening tools that can be used to detect scoliosis
- Current treatment options provided by the NHS
- Our in-house ScolioGold method
Here's what Sian had to say about the 2020 BASRaT conference...
"This was a great opportunity to go back to my own university and raise awareness to future sport rehabilitators who are sure to come across patients with scoliosis at some point during their practice. It is a subject that is often overlooked and certainly not explored in depth as part of undergraduate courses, so providing these talks regarding the anatomy changes and screening tools for scoliosis is so important!"
Sian has received some great feedback from the students, some of whom have already expressed further interest in gaining work experience with the Scoliosis SOS Clinic!
