Proper strength and conditioning allows athletes and teams to perform at their highest possible level. The benefits of peak conditioning and strength include better injury prevention and, if necessary, increased effectiveness of rehabilitation. An athlete following a well-designed program can prevent, or significantly reduce, muscle imbalances and strengthen necessary tendons and ligaments, leading to far fewer injuries on the field.
Originally presented as a live event at the prestigious Andrews Institute in Gulf Breeze, Florida, “Injuries in Football: Performance and Return to Play” presents up to date information, resources and techniques for proper strength and conditioning to reduce sports injuries and accelerate rehabilitation. This guide combines the professional knowledge of many preeminent sport medicine physicians, including Ryan Donahue, PT, DPT, CSCS and John Andino, DPT, ATC.
This extensive guide focuses on the importance of nutrition and the importance of educating athletes to eat right and form healthy habits. There are easy rules to follow and they are applicable to any athlete. The course also dives into the categories of Pre-Participation Screening and the Functional Movement Screen among other tests. Reliability and validity are discussed as well as the predictive injury capability of the screens. Lastly, the transition between rehabilitation end point and sports training beginnings are discussed and the need to bridge the gap between rehabilitation and strength training before an athlete is ready to return to play.
