Description

Assessment & Treatment of Athletes and Common Sports Injuries

This 4-day seminar will teach the practitioner how to assess and treat athletes and the most common sports injuries we see in the clinic. Physical assessment, orthopedic tests, electro-acupuncture, taping, and extensive soft tissue manual therapies will all be covered. Through lectures, ample hands-on practice, and patient demos including with athletes, participants will learn all aspects of assessing and treating athletes, from core concepts and skills to the practical application in the clinic. Following this seminar, participants will be able to confidently apply what they learn to a variety of sports injuries for athletes of all different backgrounds.

The key to learning how to treat sports injuries is to understand the mechanics and types of injuries common to different sports. This way what you learn will have application across many different types of athletes. For example, when you learn to treat muscle strains of the hamstring, the same treatment principles apply for any muscle strain.

The same goes for injuries of the shoulder, knee, ankle, elbow, and wrist. For example, throwing-related injuries apply to many different sports, so learning how to assess and treat these injuries has cross-applications. Think less about sports specific and more about broad application. This will allow you to apply what you learn to many different types of patients.

Objectives:

  • Understand the anatomy and physiology of injuries, neurogenic inflammation, motor inhibition, and other key concepts in sports injuries
  • Learn how to take a correct history, rule out red flags, and gather necessary information
  • Learn assessment techniques including specific orthopedic tests of commonly injured areas
  • Learn the mechanism of common injuries
  • Understand why electro-acupuncture (EA) is used for treating sports injuries and mechanisms of actions in healing
  • Learn EA techniques used for treating athletes
  • Understand how and why taping is used for treating athletes and how to apply it
  • Learn about the important role of soft tissue and fascia in sports injuries
  • Learn how to identify fascial restrictions and distortions, practice palpation
  • Understand the importance of manual therapy in treating sports injuries
  • Learn how soft tissue manual therapy helps heal injury and speed up recovery
  • Learn a variety of soft tissue techniques and when to use each

Manual Therapy for Athletes

When athletes or active patients come into our office they care about one thing – getting out of pain and returning to their sport or activity. We see the frustration the patient feels not being able to do the one thing they love. We want more than anything to play an active role in improving their quality of life. One of the most effective ways to provide immediate relief is to address the fascial system with hands on therapies.

At this seminar, you will get exposure to the most advanced evidence-based soft tissue techniques available to address myofascial pain and hypertonicity. You will also be able to skillfully apply other techniques such as cupping, IASTM, use of foam rollers and massage guns. In this training, you will build a foundation in the anatomy and function of fascia in both normal and pathological conditions. With over 10 years of clinical experience as a sports chiropractor for multiple professional sports organizations and amateur athletes, Dr. Lev Furman will cover the most effective application of soft tissue manual therapy. This seminar will take your practice to the next level when it comes to helping athletes recover from injuries and return to optimal performance.
