Event description

Description

You have high aspirations for your team, but nothing sidelines your season’s goals like athlete injury or repeated player concussions.


In this hour long PowerUp Seminar, physiotherapists Codi Isaac & Marlyn Bravo delve into the topics of sport injury prevention and concussion prevention + management.



Keeping Your Team Injury Free This Season

Injury prevention is important. There’s a growing interest in screening programs to identify athlete weaknesses. Functional Movement Systems (FMS) screening is a popular framework for sport prevention screening. Marlyn will give an overview of FMS and the key tests included. As well, she will answer these important questions:

  • Why should I screen my athletes using FMS?
  • How are tests scored and how does this relate to injury risk?
  • How can we change our athletes' FMS scores?


You’ll walk away with an understanding of who’s most at risk for injury on your team based on evidence rather than hunches. Plus you’ll understand how you can implement customized corrective exercise programs to help your athletes.



Concussion Prevention & Management: Follow the Evidence

Concussions suck. And they can really add a lot of uncertainty to your coaching program. Even though there’s more awareness of concussions in sport, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with what to do. In this introductory session Codi explains the key signs and symptoms of concussion along with the the prevalence & prognosis of concussions in sport. Most importantly she’ll arm you the answers you need about baseline testing and whether your team needs it.

  • Amateur & Professional team coaches
  • Team trainers
  • Association executives
