And some of those clients will soon be the world’s elite. The clock keeps ticking and with it London 2012 gets closer and closer. The Winter Olympics in Vancouver sadly started with a tragedy but grew into a joyful pageant of colour and excitement which climaxed in a dramatic sudden death overtime winner for the hosts in their number one sport of ice hockey. The torch has now been passed on. The next time the Olympic family gathers it will be in our own back yard.

Welcome to the Spring edition of sportEX dynamics.


We have had more feedback about the CPD article in the last edition than any other article we have published during my tenure as editor, so we have followed that up with an article by Eileen Baron on proving your CPD by producing a portfolio of evidence. Please keep the feedback coming. We will endeavour to commission articles for the magazine that you the readers want. Better still, write something yourself. It can be part of your own CPD portfolio! We’re particularly keen for case studies so that we can all share in good soft tissue practise and improve our own skills to the benefit of our clients.
