Have you ever had an athlete referred to your clinic and felt as though your treatment was inadequate? Have you ever felt that your treatment approach is stale? Getting Off the Sideline and Into the Game is an interactive movie course that will introduce the rehab professional to the world of sports medicine and discuss how unique treatment of the athlete can be. This course offers instruction in assessment, special testing, the use of modalities, and a wide variety of therapeutic exercises and how to adapt each to meet the needs of each athlete. In addition, this course discusses athletic taping and the use of splints and braces during play and on the sideline. At the completion of this course the participant will feel more confident to “take the field” in sports rehab. This course manual is 125 color pages. Note: This course provides conceptual preparation to seek additional training, and does not provide you a mentored hands-on skills session. Please seek additional experience, with a mentor, to perform hands-on skills.

    This was my first time purchasing a course from Live Conferences. I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the course. I learned a lot . I would recommend chaptering/indexing further. The shoulder section was very long and it was time consuming to find a section again. Thank you for providing a cost effective and quality course. I would definitely consider another course.

    I really enoyed this course, I thought the instructor was well informed about the material he covered and was logical and sequential for good comprehension and learning. I was hoping to get more info on hand taping for sports as I also coach girls basketball as well as work with industrial injuries that often benefit from soft, inexpensive support. I wonder if an athletic trainer's taping techniques for the upper extremity might be an idea for a video course. I do enjoy the wide range of courses you offer and although I pay for them out of my own pocket, I find the courses valuable both in terms of skill building and investment. Thanks for all!
