Cooking Workshop

Tailor made cooking for athletes is an essential part of performance strategy

Floris Wardenaar, Nijmegen, The Netherlands
Erik te Velhuis, Arnhem, The Netherlands

Aim of the workshop:
To discuss the most important dietary issues athletes deal with in daily practice. Sports dieticians and restaurant chefs can contribute significantly in solutions fitting for each individual. The Dutch Olympic Training Centre of Papendal hosts a sports restaurant facility that focuses on innovative concepts to facilitate athletes. A whole line of products is developed matching different nutrition strategies. During this workshop we offer practical solutions for specific nutrition problems that athletes are facing based on the most recent sports nutrition recommendations. So, we combine food for thought and tasting food in one setting with leading Dutch sport nutrition chef Erik te Velthuis and head of the Team Nutrition of the Dutch Olympic Committee sports dietician Floris Wardenaar.

ESWT

A short introduction to Shockwave Therapy
Luc Vanden Bossche, Ghent, Belgium

ESWT in Sports Medicine
Klaus Hornig, Saarbrücken, Germany

Aim of the workshop:
Extracorporeal-Shockwave-Therapy is applied regularly and with a high success rate for indications such as calcific tendinitis, plantar fasciitis/heel spurs, chronic Achilles tendinopathies and many more.
This hands-on workshop is directed to starters as well as experienced Shockwave-practitioners.
You will learn how to reduce or take away pain, improve mobility and muscle strength to enable the patient to return to normal activities as quickly as possible, thanks to the combination of local treatment and an extra focus on Myofascial Trigger Points.
As a result, therapeutic successes are often possible where no potential avenues for treatment were previously available.
ESWT can also be used for "muscle hygiene" in the sense of both prophylaxis against injury and performance enhancement.
Highly recommended workshop on a therapy with a great future!
