About the Event
Lower Extremity Return to Play: Blending Evidence Based Practice with Exercise Science and Motor Learning is a 16 hour course designed to improve the physical therapist’s objective evaluation skills, application of motor control and motor learning to treatment interventions, and incorporation of exercise science, specifically strength, agility, speed, power, and energy systems programming into the treatment of lower quarter injuries with a goal of return to sport for the injured athlete. This is a skills intensive course that will focus on the application and interpretation of return to sport testing for the lower quarter and assessing, prescribing, and correcting sport specific movements.
1) Critically review available return to sport tests for the lower extremity
2) Perform return to sport testing for the lower extremity
3) Examine current literature to identify evidence based exercise interventions for strength, power, agility, speed, and energy systems training for athletes.
4) Implement an appropriate program to improve outcomes for return to sport
