Every year, our K1 students take part in the Rééduca fair. They are supervised by K2 students who also participate in activities during the show.

Baptiste, student of K2 participated in the recovery of athletes in the context of 1 day, 1 sport, 1 physio organized by ITMP, he tells us about his experience.

“On October 25, 2018, the Porte de Versailles Exhibition Center in Paris opened for the Rééduca Event and for three days, thousands of professionals and students in masso-kinesitherapy met for the 54th edition of this event. An event that has become unavoidable over the years.

According to Mrs GABORIEAU, director of the event Rééduca Paris: “it is above all an encounter”. Indeed, the Salon allows meeting especially between therapists, exhibitors or even authorities of the profession to share the experiences of each.

That Thursday, a hundred students from the CEERRF, first, second and third years, went to Rééduca 2018. Accompanied by a few second year, the Mk1, in groups of 5 or 6, discovered over the stands a first approach to their future job. Finding out about topics such as technological equipment for evaluation or treatment, management and balance sheet software, presses and professional unions, order or even continuing education allows them to learn and learn about this. they will see during their internships or after graduation. ”

In addition to booths to cultivate innovations in the paramedical sector, Rééduca 2018 is distinguished by its dense program of workshops whose main objectives are prevention and training.

A workshop, in partnership with ITMP, particularly caught my attention. In correlation with the sport dynamics that the Show wished to bring, this activity brought a simple concept: 1 day | 1 sport | 1 physio.

In view of the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024, many high-level athletes took part in the game to show off while showing the impact of mass-physiotherapy in the various pathological conditions found in the environment. athletic.

With the help of Mr EVELINGER, I met Christophe MAHIEU, specialist in manual therapy of sport and trainer at ITMP.

I was able to attend one of the workshops of 1 day | 1 sport | 1 physiotherapist. For an hour I had the chance to meet two great names in French fencing namely Vincent ANSTETT, Olympic medalist, and Boris SANSON, world champion in Beijing.

After a brief performance to understand the rules and pathologies engendered posture constraints in this sport, we were able to show the importance of massage therapy in the world of sport. On the one hand, I was there to show and explain that traditional manual therapy, in this case massage and stretching, always has an impact on the athlete’s recovery. On the other hand, Christophe MAHIEU demonstrated that masso-physiotherapy is advancing with the times. Tecartherapy technologies are a very good example. Especially the one that was presented that day Mr. MAHIEU: Human Tecar Viss. Vibration-based technology with intensity variations favoring the recovery and treatment of certain sports-related pathologies.

I was able to learn a lot during this meeting, whether it was with Mr. MAHIEU by the various machines he was able to present, but also with Boris SANSON, himself a state graduate in masso-kinesitherapy, who could advise me and guide me on my practice of manual therapy.

Beyond this memorable exchange, I find that Rééduca is a beautiful place to share knowledge. The important development of paramedical technologies meant to reduce the workload of the Mk is a real step forward for the world Masso-kinesitherapy. But there are some fears among students that the profession is conforming to the ideology of today’s society, according to which man is bound to leave his place to the machine. The machine must remain an assistant for the therapist, like the Tecartherapy, and not lead to a replacement of it.
