About the Course
Sports related injuries are some of the most common injuries in the United states. They are not limited to one age group, gender or ethnicity. They are seen across the board in high caliber athletics, youth leagues, gym training or the common weekend warrior. Some of these injuries are self-limiting and will heal with time PT, and RICE protocols. However, some will need medical and/or surgical intervention in the form of injections (corticosteroid or PRP/Stem Cell), Arthroscopy of the Knee, Shoulder, & Hip. According to the American academy of orthopedic surgery (AAOS), arthroscopies are some of the most performed procedures in the United States.
This course is designed to provide the participant with a thorough understanding of common sports injuries and recovery post-medical/surgical intervention with considerations in training, pre and post rehabilitation, nutrition and in some cases medication to support recovery in this population. The Sports Medicine Fitness Specialist will have a strong and confident understanding of the injury and an ability to continue the client’s pre and post-surgical rehabilitation while meeting the client’s heath goals. This course will also provide valuable insight and tools to further the medical fitness professionals’ business and marketing goals.
