Why Some Injured Athletes Never Return to Play—and What You Can Do About It
Whether they're wrecking themselves in CrossFit® or football, record numbers of weekend warriors are cropping up with the sports injuries of professional athletes. That means business is booming for rehab professionals like you. However, with more athletes skipping physicians than ever before, you've got to be confident in your assessment skills if you hope to treat symptoms at their source. If your caseload has stalled during this busy time with patients who aren't making much progress, now's the time to reevaluate your evaluations.
This hands-on program will take your sports medicine team to the next level, equipping you with evidence-based, multidisciplinary protocols for the athletic injuries you see most. From IT bands to impinged rotator cuffs, this course provides efficient clinical pathways for each member of your team, eliminating the guesswork from assessment, evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation. With plenty of practice throughout the day, you'll quickly grasp the "why," "what," and "how" of common conditions like acute/chronic inflammation, microtrauma, neuromuscular imbalances, and joint instability. The effective interventions you'll try out in class will feel like second nature by the time you return to work.
Finally, explore the unique biomechanical demands of common sports and fitness activities and take home injury prevention methods and conditioning techniques that keep your clients doing what they love, whether they're swinging golf clubs or kettlebells.
