Help Get Injured Clients Back Doing What They Love

Injury: it’s a dreaded word but an all too common occurrence among active individuals, whether they are performance-oriented or just looking to get into shape. For exercise professionals, it is important to understand how to safely return injured clients back to exercise without exacerbating the issue.

Taught by Lauren Shroyer, MS, ATC, ACE Senior Director of Product Development, this video training is ideal for beginners looking for an introduction to exercise progressions and specific techniques to help clients recover from common injuries, including sprains and fractures. This course will help you safely transition clients back to a total body program and will uncover how to avoid further injury during phases of tissue healing. Upon completion, you will be able to put these concepts immediately into practice.

You will learn:

  • Common injuries involving upper and lower extremities, including the mechanism of injury, structures involved and healing constraints
  • The phases of tissue healing and a systematic approach to exercise following an injury
  • Goal-setting strategies when working with clients post-injury
  • Exercise progressions for individuals with specific injuries
  • The importance of effective communication with clients’ healthcare providers

Great information. The instructor is knowledgeable and clear. The a couple things: I wish the video went back to the powerpoint slides during the presentation. It shows the slide once, occasionally twice, for a very short amount of time and never goes back. The trainer is explaining things very clearly, but having that additional visual support of the powerpoint slides during the video would be helpful. Also, the quiz I took had an error that made the question confusing. It asked about benefits of a front/zercher squat. The correct answer was that it "allows the client to sit back into the LUNGE". If it had said squat, I would have immediately picked that, but the "lunge" typo threw me off, and it was clearly a typo and not a trick question. I realize the question bank on ACE's software must be immense, but I wish there was more care in reviewing errors in quiz questions. Overall great and super beneficial course.

It would be helpful to see the slides she is talking about while she is talking.

Assessibility to the slides would be helpful. They were clicked through so fast that it was hard to take notes. I had to go back through and pause it really quick to get the slide. This may help organize the notes to prepare for the quiz.
