Sports Specific Rehabilitation Module 3: Muscle Anatomy and Physiology

Format(s):   Home-study
Discipline(s):   Physical Therapy / Occupational Therapy
Contact Hours:   10
Registration Fee:   $159

Course Goals: This course is intended to instruct the professional through a self-paced study on the sports specific rehabilitation of patients. Professional Objectives: At the end of this course the professional will be able to: *Differentiate between characteristics of muscle tissue that make movement possible. *Identify the role of T tubules as a major component of skeletal muscle cells. *Recognize the three basic principles of the sliding-filament theory of muscle contraction. *Identify three phases of excitation-contraction coupling. *Recognize differences in function between neuromuscular junctions and other synapses. *Identify characteristics of Golgi tendon organs including their primary functions and location. *Recognize precautions that are advised for creatine supplementation. *Recognize the three processes involved in lactate clearance during rest and exercise. *Recognize the accumulation of lactic acid is a physiological and performance problem. *Differentiate between anaerobic metabolism during exercise for children and adolescents versus young and middle-age adults. *Differentiate between anaerobic metabolism during exercise for males and females. *Differentiate between anaerobic metabolism during exercise for the elderly and young adults. *Define functional residual capacity (FRC). *Recognize how to calculate maximal heart rate (MHR) from age. *Identify common characteristics of left ventricular hypertrophy. *Recognize hydration recommendations from the American College of Sports Medicine. *Identify the primary goal of Fartlek training. *Differentiate between peripheral and central muscle fatigue. *Identify metabolic by-products that have the most profound effect on mechanical function. *Identify techniques used to differentiate between peripheral and central fatigue including MVC, interpolated twitch, and EMG. *Recognize the capacity of the muscle-tendon unit to resist stretching is directly related to the tension of the muscle. *Differentiate between clinical classification of three muscle strains. *Differentiate between 8 training principles. *Recognize signs and symptoms of the overtraining syndrome. *Identify monitoring techniques used by the athlete to help predict overtraining syndrome. *Identify consequences of detraining on the cardio respiratory system.

Target Audience
Physical Therapists, Physical Therapist Assistants, Occupational Therapist, Certified Occupational Therapist Assistants, and Athletic Trainers.

This course utilizes text from the soft back textbook by Robert Donatelli. “Sports Specific Rehabilitation” ©2007 is a comprehensive resource for focusing on returning injured athletes to their optimal performance! This book discusses exercise principles; muscle fatigue, muscle damage, and overtraining concepts; pathophysiology of overuse injuries; core evaluation in sports-specific testing; physiological basis of exercise specific to sport; and special considerations for the athlete. This 368 page book has been broken down by chapters into 3 modules (check your states approval status in the state specific course catalog for your profession). Each module can be purchased separately or combined with one or all of the other modules as a bundle pack. Individual modules are available in our online format (PDF Download) available instantly, or by mail. Our mail order format allows our customer to obtain a hardcopy of the course materials. When you choose the mail format we will rush you your course materials the next business day via USPS Priority, UPS Ground or UPS 2nd Day Air.
