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 course with a lot of great information. Instructor is very knowledgeable and delivers information in a very efficient and understandable way.

Excellent presentation and quality. More of this, please.

This was a great session but there was not enough screen time on the slides that she was lecturing on. I would recommend this class because of the material covered and she did a great job teaching it - again my issue was that there was not enough screen time on the slides. I had to pause the video every slide making my viewing time a lot longer than anticipated.

Great lecturer, I'll definitely be looking for more courses presented by her. Engaging and informative.
