Diane received her BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy from Manchester University in 2000 and worked in the NHS for the next decade. In 2010 she received her MSc in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy from Manchester Metropolitan University.
Diane has been involved in academy football since 2004 initially working as a Casual Academy Physiotherapist at MUFC, progressing to her current role in 2010. During her time with MUFC, Diane has seen a significant expansion in the Academy system, managing the increasing medical requirements of an evolving Academy programme. Her role is to ensure that paediatric injuries are managed appropriately whilst considering growth and maturation and ensuring that the long-term athletic development of the player takes precedent over short-term gains.
Diane is a Visiting Senior Lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University. She is an FA Affiliate Medical Tutor for the English Football Association and has taught on international sports trauma management courses for SPORTS ER. Diane has recently had three chapters published in ‘A Comprehensive Guide to Sports Physiology and Injury Management’. These chapters introduce concepts around working in an elite football academy along with diagnosing and managing paediatric injuries. Diane is currently involved in supporting research around Cardiac Profiling in Academy footballers.
Diane’s presentation ‘Tackling paediatric injuries’, will focus on paediatric sports injuries, both the common presentations and those that are not to be missed! Diane will discuss the importance of clinical reasoning skills to accurately diagnose and treat injuries.
The talk from Diane will last around 30 – 40 minutes followed by time for questions and answers.
