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.
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.
• Complete screening and pre-participation addendum for the female athlete with respect to the Triad.
• 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 and prescribe a corrective exercise program
• Recognize some gender differences with specific medical considerations with acute coronary syndromes and sports concussion.
• List and appropriately discuss the exercise considerations of a pregnant athlete.
• List and discuss the aspects of aging with the female athlete to enable implementation of concepts in the management of the master female athlete.
