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

It is enough information to whet the appetite. It felt a little scattered, you could tell it was edited from a longer presentation. It would have been nice to have a more in-depth look at rehab and exercise.

Very informed presenter. However, only brief snapshots of the slides. It was extremely difficult to understand what the emphasis of the workshop was in order to take the quiz. I don't understand why we are not seeing the slides while she speaks. I had to take the quiz multiple times to pass it.
