Physiotherapy in Sport and Recreation - PHTY4226

The aim of this unit of study is for participants to apply the knowledge, skills and reasoning gained during coursework and clinical practice 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 including advanced exercise prescription 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. Participants will expand their knowledge regarding the management of common injuries to include serious and catastrophic injuries in both on-field and long-term situations.
