KI 2110 - Care and Prevention of Injuries


An introductory course for the prospective physical educator, coach, personal trainer, physical therapist or athletic trainer designed to focuses on the prevention, care, and management of sport and physical activity related injuries. Because initial decisions and subsequent actions are critical in determining the outcome of sports injury, this course will present key concepts in a comprehensive, logically sequential manner that will assist future professionals in making the correct decisions when confronted with an activity-related injury in their scope of practice. Specific domains of athletic training are introduced, predominantly those of prevention, recognition and treatment of athletic injuries. Essential anatomy is reviewed as it applies to injury mechanisms. Basic evaluation and rehabilitation skills are illustrated and practiced in the required lab section, as well as basic bandaging, taping and emergency care procedures. Offered every year.
