Major Concepts/Content: Sports Medicine II is an elective course that builds upon the principles learned in Sports Medicine I. The course expands upon the students’ knowledge of sports specific injuries and injury evaluation techniques with the main focus being injury rehabilitation and the application of rehabilitation principles. Emphasis will be placed on the combination of hands-on student-centered learning activities and academic readings and discussions. A rotation through a variety of community settings such as physical therapy, orthopedics, emergency medicine, and sports medicine clinics is recommended.
Topics of study include:
- Practice, reinforce, and become proficient in evaluation/treatment techniques learned in Sports Medicine I.
- Study of human movement including muscles involved, and the simple machines and mechanics that move the body.
- Foundations of rehabilitation techniques.
- Awareness and exploration of medical/health occupation careers and exercise physiology through community internship.
- Concepts of confidentiality, work habits, ethics, attitudes, and responsibility.
- Application of organizational and administration skills in the athletic training room.
Major Instructional Activities: Based on the philosophy that knowledge is best acquired through hands-on participation, the course uses a variety of techniques to introduce, explore, and reinforce major athletic training principles and skills. Instructional activities are staged in appropriate settings, which include classroom, training room, computer lab/use of technology, and athletic field. Teaching strategies include investigations, demonstrations, discussions, and hands-on/minds-on experiences. The major emphasis of the class will be to apply the skills learned to real life situations.
Major Evaluative Techniques: Progress in sports medicine II will be measured using multiple methods such as individual and group performances, projects, interviews, reports, student generated works, skill competency check sheets, practical hours, and/or conventional testing. All of this will come together in the development of a resume and portfolio demonstrating proficiency.
Course Objectives: Upon completion of this course students should be able to:
- Evaluate sports injuries and begin emergency treatment.
- Demonstrate proper taping/bracing techniques.
- Demonstrate the use of therapeutic modalities.
- Work with a physician/physical therapist to develop and supervise basic rehabilitation techniques.
- Integrate knowledge and skills from outcomes listed in a problem solving model when evaluating sports injuries.
- Evaluate various sports medicine related web sites via Internet investigation.
