At the end of this course, the student will be able to: 1. Understand the response of the lower extremity to cycle pedaling speed. 2. Evaluate knee flexion as it correlates to a complete crank revolution. 3. Understand the power phase of pedaling as it relates to the knee. 4. Evaluate the similar phases of cycling and running. 5. Understand the relationship of seat height and anterior shear force to the knee. 6. Understand the relationship of seat height and the knee/ankle musculature. 7. Evaluate gluteus maximus activity as it relates to crank rotation. 8. Understand hamstring muscle contraction patterns during a crank rotation. 9. Evaluate a change in trunk extension during recumbent cycling and the subsequent change in muscle activity. 10. Understand the relationship of seat height, knee flexion angle, and power production in a cyclist. 11. Evaluate four body parts and their relationship to cycling injuries. 12. Evaluate an abnormally thickened medial knee plica as it relates to lower extremity alignment on the bicycle. 13. Understand four body parts and their relationship to injury in golf. 14. Evaluate the position of the hips during a golf swing. 15. Understand weight transfer during a golf swing. 16. Evaluate the likelihood of injury during a golf swing. 17. Understand the process to minimize pain associated with medial knee compartment osteoarthritis in a golf swing. 18. Evaluate the relationship of muscle recruitment and low back pain during a golf swing. 19. Understand the relationship of grip to increased valgus load on the elbow during a golf swing. 20. Evaluate club height and lumbar pain during a golf swing. 21. Understand four types of jumps and plyometric exercise. 22. Understand the relationship of jump height and muscle length. 23. Evaluate the possibility of lower limb injuries during jumping. 24. Evaluate the proper contraction sequence during a jump. 25. Understand the biomechanics of a plyometric jump. 26. Evaluate the difference between males/females and landing from a jump. 27. Evaluate the upper extremity during a tennis swing. 28. Understand the relationship of scapular stabilizers and the cocking phase of a tennis swing. 29. Understand the body’s position and forward movements of the upper extremity during a tennis swing. 30. Evaluate the relationship of the trunk musculature during a tennis swing. 31. Understand the activation of muscles in a forehand and backhand tennis swing. 32. Analyze the need for a one handed or two handed backhand. 33. Analyze the result of a tight posterior capsule of the shoulder during a tennis swing. 34. Evaluate different types of lower extremity cutting motions during a tennis match. 35. Evaluate the lateral crossover and lateral shuffle during a tennis match.

These courses are offered in cooperation with Elsevier Health and utilize the hardback textbook, “Athletic and Sport Issues in Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation” by David J. Magee, PT, PhD, Robert C. Manske, PT, DPT, SCS, Med, ATC, CSCS, James E. Zachazewski, PT, DPT, SCS, ATC, and William S. Quillen, PT, PhD, SCS, FACSM.
These courses provide expert insight and clear rehabilitation guidelines to help you manage injuries and special medical needs unique to your athletic clients. Contributions from leading physical therapists, athletic trainers, physicians and orthopedic surgeons give you a comprehensive, clinically relevant understanding of common sports-related injuries and help you ensure the most effective therapeutic outcomes. These courses are essential to everyone on the sports medicine team!
Module 1: covers preparation and prevention in sports medicine including the role of the sports medicine team, pre-participation physical fitness profiling, psychosocial aspects of youth sports and nutrition counseling and athletes.
Module 2: covers preparation and prevention in sports medicine including environmental considerations for sports, use of ergogenic aids in sports and sports drug testing issues
Module 3: covers applied biomechanics of cycling, golf, jumping and tennis
Module 4: covers applied biomechanics of soccer, running, swimming and baseball pitching
Module 5: covers management of sports injury and illness including delayed-onset muscle soreness, medical conditions in sport, dermatologic considerations in athletics and protective equipment in sports
Module 6: covers management of sports injury and illness including sports related concussions, traumatic injuries to the cervical spine, maxillofacial injuries and abdominal and thoracic injuries.
Module 7: covers special populations and epidemiology including the female athlete, musculoskeletal dance medicine and science, the athlete with disabilities, and selected rehabilitation needs of the masters athlete.
Module 8: covers applied biomechanics of common weight training exercises, taping for athletics and rehabilitation and applied sports injury epidemiology
This package contains the reading and testing materials for Module 3 only.
Course Goals: This course is intended to instruct the student through self-paced study on providing intervention for the athlete in the specific areas of applied biomechanics of golf, cycling, jumping, and tennis.
