The aim of this unit of study is for participants to apply the knowledge, skills and reasoning gained during coursework and clinical practica to sport and recreational activities. Participants will integrate this knowledge with advanced instruction in the biomechanics and physiology of sports activities to design injury prevention/screening programs for participants in recreational activities, to develop injury management programs for all recreation groups to facilitate their return to sport and to plan and implement activity modification programs for those who are unable to participate in standard recreational activities. The relationship of public health issues, e.g., osteoporosis and childhood obesity, to recreation will also be explored.
