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

I feel that some of the questions on the quiz asked about things that were not actually presented. Additionally, there are a few typos and questions that contain errors. Seems like someone should have done a better job of proofreading prior to publishing. The presenter dispensed the information in a way that was easy to understand. The demonstrations of exercises and movement patterns is appreciated.

Presented well with concrete examples of exercises

The information provided was solid, but I would have preferred to see the things that she was referring to on her screen rather than just her. It would have made the content much more easy to retain. Also, the quiz has an answer that is just plain wrong. A FRONT SQUAT utilizes your quads more than a regular squat. It shifts the weight so that you have to bring your hips forward more and not "sit back" into it.
