Course Description

This course provides current best-evidence for the management of the female athlete. It will include topics such as The Triad (formerly known as the Female Athlete Triad), relative energy deficiency in sports (RED-S), gender differences with anatomy/physiology, sports biomechanics, medical conditions such as cardiac and sports concussion, life spectrum issues including pregnancy and master athlete issues. The participant will explore and demonstrate competency in the management spectrum of the female athlete from injury prevention, pre-participation screening to rehabilitation and performance enhancement.

Objectives

By the end of the course, a successful learner will be able to:

  • Compare and contrast gender differences (anatomical, physiological, sports biomechanics) to allow implementation of these concepts in the management of the female athlete.
  • Describe The Triad concept, comparing it to relative energy deficiency in sports (RED-S) and its implications for the female athlete.
  • Practice Triad screening and pre-participation addendum for the female athlete.
  • Identify faulty sports biomechanics in a female athlete and appropriately employ evidence-based corrective training strategies.
  • Employ evidence-based movement screening processes to identify injury risk.
  • Prescribe an evidence-based corrective exercise program to correct identified injury risk factors.
  • Analyze gender differences with specific medical considerations with acute coronary syndromes and sports concussion for implementation in your clinical practice.
  • Prescribe evidence-based management strategies to successfully rehabilitate a Musculo-skeletally injured female athlete.
  • List and appropriately apply exercise considerations in your exercise prescription for the pregnant athlete.
  • Predict and observe aspects of aging with the female athlete to appropriately manage the master and senior female athlete.
