In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast I am speaking to head of rehabilitation at the Brisbane Lions in the AFL, Selwyn Griffith. As you can see from Selwyn’s Twitter name, his background is osteopathy and as you will hear in the episode, his osteo background plays a huge part in his practice at the Lions. It was fantastic to get someone with a non-traditional background to S&C and hear how his thought process is slightly different to those who have entered the industry through more conventional routes.

In this episode you will learn –

  • Who is Selwyn Griffith (background, education and current role)
  • Why osteopathy?
  • Osteopathy’s role in high performance sport
  • Manual therapy vs exercise therapy
  • Rehabilitation -> the team within a team -> culture
  • Progressions and staged criteria/goals
  • Return to play protocols
