Injury Prevention Techniques

Course Description:

The Injury Prevention Techniques for Fitness Trainers Workshop has been designed to provide you with practical “how to” strategies, skills, and confidence to safely assist clients through their recovery from the common musculoskeletal injuries. These conditions include but are not limited to injury and pain in the following areas: back, knee, shoulder, ankle, elbow. Throughout the workshop, you’ll sharpen your knowledge on the fundamentals of anatomy and posture as well as the relevant and specific anatomy for any given injury site and how to best re-train these areas. Most importantly, you’ll learn the simple yet vital techniques of client education on the path to injury recovery

Expect to Learn:

  • When to ice or heat
  • When it’s safe to start moving/training again
  • Clarity on the dangerous moves that you should not be doing once someone has injured themselves
  • When to refer a client to an allied health professional such as a physiotherapist or chiropractor
  • How to see the changes that have occurred to the injured area and the basic techniques of how to progressively correct these changes.
  • What happens when we first injure ourselves
  • What happens to movement patterns once an injury occurs
  • What happens to movement long term if these changes are never addressed
  • Why “touch and teach” is a must use technique when working with clients who are doing an exercise program to recover from injury
