About the Course..

Athletes at all levels of competition pursue and utilize the most advanced methods of training for the enhancement of their athletic performance. These advanced methods and principles also include specific exercises for utilization to enhance athletic performance. The rehabilitation of the injured athlete also includes the application of exercise to ensure a successful outcome. If the strongest, most powerful, and fastest athletes in the world utilize specific exercises and training techniques for their success, couldn’t we as healthcare professionals utilize these same exercises and techniques in the clinical setting for the advancement of the rehabilitation of the injured knee athlete? This seminar will provide the healthcare practitioner with a review of the essential physical qualities for optimal athletic performance as well as the methods of appropriate advanced exercise application for the development of these physical qualities during the rehabilitation of the athletic knee.
