Injuries on the Field


Course Description

Being ready to make rapid decisions regarding the medical care of athletes injured during the course of play is a critical skill for sports medicine professionals. Hesitation or misdiagnosis of an injury can result in severe consequences for the athlete, including career-ending conditions and, in extreme cases, death. Proper planning is required to be able to execute evaluation and sideline treatment and follow up rehabilitation of common injuries such as ortho injuries, wrist injuries, "stingers", head and spine injuries.

Initially taught individually at the prestigious Andrews Institute in Gulf Breeze, Florida, “Injuries on the Field” presents an in-depth exploration of common injuries athletes suffer during play and how to deal with them. This guide combines the professional knowledge of six preeminent sport medicine physicians, including former athletic trainer for the Chicago Bears Mike Kordecki, DPT, SCS, ATC, and founder of Andrews Institute and world-renowned sports physician, Dr. James Andrews.

This series is a must watch for healthcare professionals seeking a comprehensive guide to effectively treating injuries on the sideline and on the field.
