Module Descriptions/Relevance

April 1: Mental Performance:  Having a case of “THE YIPS” on the golf course can mean the difference between par and birdie.

Description: How to understand and incorporate mental practice and strategies in patients who play golf to improve their level of competition and minimize their risk of overuse injuries.

Relevance to PT: as physical therapists and physical therapist assistants treating athletes, clinicians need to be educated on the non- musculoskeletal impact on the healing and overall performance level associated with given sport.  Mental components must be recognized and as treating clinicians, we must have the ability to treat to allow return to a high level of function.  Having a case of “THE YIPS” on the golf course can mean the difference between par and birdie and is a concern to patients wishing to improve their sport’s performance.

April 8: Early Sports Specialization: Creating More Harm In Our Youth Athletes?

Description: Discussion to limit the impact of early specialization in the youth athletes in order to prevent and limit risk of injuries limiting competition and surgical interventions. Will include discussion into education of coaches, parents, as well as youth athletes.

Relevance to Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants: provide and understanding of what we as practitioners need to incorporate and modify in their training principles to allow for a decreased risk of injuries and understand youth nutritional considerations to allow for optimal performance in this population.

April 15: Does Strike Pattern Matter?: A Comprehensive Review of Foot Strike Patterns in Runners

Description: Understanding the difference in foot strike patterns and how they impact injury rate in the running population at various racing distances.  This module will also discuss patient education in regards to prevention strategies and recovery.

Relevance to physical therapists and physical therapist assistants: Treatment of runners and high-level athletes requires understanding of proper mechanics, training plans and an ability to retrain this population without compromising or impacting their safety, causing further injury or their training regimens in preparation for a race.

April 22: Non-musculoskeletal considerations in Olympic weightlifting; The effect Diabetes has on strength training

Description: The physiological effects diabetes has on aerobic, anaerobic, strength training and performance outcomes in high level Olympic athletes and what we can do to limit the detrimental effects.

Relevance to physical therapists and physical therapist assistants: Underlying metabolic disorders can impact training effects and performance gains in athletes therefore as practitioners it is important to understand pathophysiology, impacts and overall expectations associated with this disorder in order to modify our programs, nutrition, training and education to optimize outcomes and gains with these athletes.

April 29: What’s the Difference? Gender Equality in Sports on and off the court

Description: Gender equality both on and off the court- how gender may affect care and treatment of the athlete.  What can we do to equalize opportunities in Volleyball.

Relevance to physical therapists and physical therapist assistants: Discussion of common injuries in volleyball- how to effectively treat, progress and train these athletes while considering the gender inequalities that may be present and how these inequalities may impact their overall care
