Like every sports, football carries the risk of injury. Due to the fact that football is a high-impact sport, football has the highest risk of injury than any other sport. The acts of tackling, blocking, and other physical contact between players frequently result in concussions, contusions, sprains and other injuries.
The very nature of football means that injuries are simply unavoidable. Players are required to pivot and change direction quickly, which increases the chance of an injury to joints or other tissues. Sudden bursts of speed can cause muscle damage if the player is not properly warmed up. Also commonly found in football players are overuse injuries, especially for quarterbacks.
Originally presented as a live event at the prestigious Andrews Institute in Gulf Breeze, Florida, “Injuries in Football: The Back, Hip and Lower Extremity” presents an in-depth exploration of common injuries football players suffer during play and how to deal with them. This guide combines the professional knowledge of many preeminent sport medicine physicians, including Dr. James Andrews himself and the Head Athletic Trainer for the New England Patriots, Jim Whalen, ATC.
This extensive guide provides a review of anatomy and pathology for the lower extremities. There is a review of lower back, hip, knee, and ankle pathology, as well as the surgical procedures that follow an injury if applicable. The course focuses upon importance of core stabilization and its relationship to preventative purposes. Several case studies are included throughout the course to provide valuable information in regards to evidence based practice. Ultimately the course focuses upon the standard of care with proper examination and direction-based rehabilitation.
This series is a must watch for healthcare professionals seeking a comprehensive guide to effectively treating injuries in football players.
