Adolescent Athlete Rehabilitation

Young athletes may be subjected to many different types of injuries because of playing their sport. Injuries to the musculoskeletal system in adolescence can have long-term repercussions including decreased activity, and long-term disability and health quality. Effective management of these athletes in the rehabilitation setting demands the practitioner to understand both how and why these athletes need to be treated differently than adults.

What this certification series will address:

This certification will address the most frequently reported spine, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, and foot/ankle injuries seen in young athletes to improve the clinician's understanding of these pathologies. The content will focus on the most current evidence for the management of these injuries along with evidence-based manual therapy, neuromuscular retraining, and therapeutic exercise interventions. Along with the presentation of the current research, we will cover detail on specific manual therapy techniques, verbal and visual cues for balance training, and ideas to address therapeutic exercises when patients may have limited access to equipment. This knowledge will improve the clinician's ability to effectively treat this commonly injured body regions.
