Nutrition and sportA Practical Guide to Nutrition for Allied Health Professionals

Do you have clients that are 'sore' at the lightest touch? Slow to heal post injury? Have persistent aches and pains despite regular treatment? 

Become the detective to unravel the hidden drivers of inflammation.

Are you aware that?

  • Absorption and synthesis of protein is compromised for many over the age of 40?
  • What are the consequences for tissue healing and what can you do about it?
  • What are the dietary triggers of inflammation and pain?
  • Osteoporosis and osteoarthritis are inflammatory diseases?
  • How do ant-acid medications affect healing, energy and mental health?
  • What can go wrong with taking fish oils?

It may surprise you to know that 63% of Australians are now considered to be obese and many face multiple health challenges. Could you identify a Pre-diabetic state and advise on how to turn it around?

We know that Insulin resistance, digestive issues, constipation, diarrhoea or just a typical Western diet, have a direct impact on tissue healing, muscle wasting, bone healing and chronic pain. This is a great opportunity to spend time with like-minded colleagues and learn new techniques to deal with these issues.

If you are passionate about achieving the best outcome for your patients and would like to gain the confidence to diagnose nutritional deficiencies and talk to your patients about how their diet choices influence their recovery, this 2-day course is for you.

“Great to dispel myths and fallacies of nutrition- was as much benefit for my own knowledge of nutrition- as well as permitting me to refine what I advise my clients”

            Francine St George (Sports scientist/Physiotherapist) Scientist/Physiotherapist MSc (Med),

"Without a doubt, this seminar/workshop has fulfilled all my expectations and given me a great starting point in understanding nutrition. Can't wait to attend Level 2"

 “I loved the way each of the presenters shared their enthusiasm with us as they changed our way of thinking about disease and healing.”

A Practical Guide to Nutrition for Allied Health Professionals is an introduction to nutrition for physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, and exercise physiologists who want to diversify their understanding of nutrition and how it influences their clients' outcomes. Course creator and presenter, Verona Chadwick has a wealth of experience and qualifications in physiotherapy, musculoskeletal physiotherapy, acupuncture and nutrition, gained from over 25 years while assisting her clients towards a pathway of improved health and wellbeing. 

Our goal at AAP Education is to improve clinical understanding and observational skills in the science of nutritional medicine of health professionals. Our aim is to improve the clinical awareness of practitioners of the importance of nutritional factors in wellness, fitness and disease. Practical skills are often not enough.

“Thanks to the presenters who made the course very informative and interesting. I will now have the confidence to ask clients about their diet and lifestyle, as I now know that these may have a direct impact on their recovery and my treatment success. This course has given me a more holistic approach when assessing patients. It was a real eye opener”

 Linda Chaney (Physiotherapist)
