Sports Medicine gives students a fundamental understanding of a range of musculoskeletal and neurological injuries. In this laboratory-based class, students will learn basic regional anatomy, the evaluation process, and acute care and rehabilitation skills for a variety of common injuries associated with sports participation. Students will gain thorough understanding of traumatic brain injuries and will be able to assess the severity of concussions, manage acute injuries and make informed decisions on appropriate return to sports participation. We will also investigate techniques for athletic performance improvement and preventative treatments.
