Steve launched Grow Physio during the COVID-19 pandemic to offer an accessible e-learning platform to assist individuals: from students to advanced practitioners to build their practical clinical reasoning. He recognises there is a real challenge to deliver clinical placements and been inundated with requests for elite sport exposure.

He hopes Grow Physio will provide a real representation and valuable educational platform that shares his experiences, designed as a resource that he wishes had been available to him. The intention is to draw upon his expertise to provide a strong foundation that stimulates individuals to generate their own ideas, get creative and progress with consistent & positive outcomes.

In this session about calf injury rehabilitation, Steve will be discussing the rehabilitation differences for gastrocnemius and soleus injuries, with a particular focus on…


  • The aims, principles & planning of rehabilitation.
  • Injury predisposition: the training errors & variables.
  • Reduced tissue capacity loading options.
  • Progressive & functional loading.
  • Preparing athletes to run again.

The talk from Steve will last around 30 – 40 minutes followed by time for questions and answers.

This free online event for anyone studying or working in the field of sports rehabilitation is taking place on Thursday 1st July 2021 at 7 pm. Sterosport are delighted to deliver this and all Injury Rehab Network events in collaboration with the British Association of Sport Rehabilitators (BASRaT).
