Injury management workshop
If an injury has occurred, be confident in recognising the symptoms that tell you what structures have been damaged and how severely. Being able to determine if a person should stop or adapt their activity or are safe to continue without further risk of injury is an essential skill for anyone who coaches sport or trains people in fitness and exercise, as is knowing what to do if an injury has happened; making the right decisions to support the body’s natural repair, speed the recovery process and reduce any potential long term impact of an injury.
Who is this workshop for?
Health and fitness professionals including coaches, fitness instructors and personal trainers.
Anyone who has a personal or occupational interest in the effective management of injuries.
What we will discuss:
How injuries occur; look at the different movements, forces and impacts experienced by the body and what happens if these exceed what the body can withstand.
The body’s repair process; understand how the body makes repairs to damaged tissues and the symptoms associated with each different stage of repair.
Supporting the repair process; what we can do to minimise further injury and increase speed of repair including immobilisation, Cryo-therapy, Heat-therapy and movement.
Assessing injuries; Identifying injuries using observational skills, understanding how to use the ‘mechanisms of injury’ as key indicators of likely structures to have been damaged, and perform a simple and effective physical assessment of an injury.
Rehabilitation; be able to apply the correct management methods to an injury according to its severity and stage of repair, as well as prescribe short to long term progressive rehabilitation programmes, returning someone from an injured state back to full fitness.
