  • I LOVED this course. I highly and strongly recommend this class to improve your ability to analyze return to sport, treat concussions, improve comfortability with outcome measure testing, and injury prevention programs with athletes. I have already started utilizing the injury prevention program with a throwing evaluation I saw the day following the class. Course Graduate
