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 2 only.
Course Goals: This course is intended to instruct the student through self paced study on the foundations of training an athlete using the biomechanics of common weight training exercise, taping and bracing the athlete for return to play, and sports injury epidemiology.
