Training Clients with Lower Body Injuries

Course outline

Overuse injuries sustained due to  overexertion during training activities such as running, general free weight activities and group exercise classes are the most common among all injuries reported. Even after rehabilitation, numerous bio-mechanical studies have shown that movement abnormality still exists and may risk future injury recurrence.

This is where there Personal Trainer comes in. Implementation of injury prevention strategies and adequate physical fitness preparation is important to prevent injury occurrence and recurrence after rehabilitation. This course explains the hip-knee-ankle association of common lower limb injuries and the 4 training quadrants suitable for each stage of fitness and physical activity.
