Lower Limb Injury Screening and Rehabilitation in Athletes
Movement screening is much simpler than we think it is! Efficient testing is devoid of gimmicky tricks or techniques. It is, on the contrary, basic, and straightforward. Take lower limb sports injuries for example. Though they might seem rather complex and intimidating to deal with, they become much easier to tackle once they are broken down into smaller problems. It’s always brilliant to have a system that anyone can follow – a system that aids one to come up with appropriately individualized exercise plans, away from the “one-size-fits-all” exercise prescriptions that, often, lack sound clinical reasoning.
Lower Limb Injury Screening and Rehabilitation in Athletes is a course for every Physiotherapist aiming to enhance his/her screening, prevention, and rehabilitation skills. Assessing an athlete’s lower limb using basic by following straightforward and logical clinical frameworks and making the athlete independent by teaching him/her how to track their own progress and thus feeding into their biopsychosocial wellness.
