Changing tides in the acute management of catastrophic head and neck injured athletes

Sweeping changes in EMS protocols and findings from recent research are challenging historical paradigms of ‘best practices’ in emergency care of the catastrophic injured athlete. Specifically, the use of long spine boards and the timing for protective equipment removal are being questioned in the case of a suspected spine injury.

This session will explore the evidence and implications for these changes and how they influenced efforts for a revision of the NATA Inter-Association Task Force for Care of the Spine-Injured Athlete. Finally, a conceptual argument will be offered for head and neck injury prevention in football utilizing a helmetless tackling training technique.

Quel rôle le thérapeute du sport peut-il jouer dans la prise en charge d’athlètes aux prises avec des douleurs lombaires?

Even though specific training of the lumbar region is considered and proven effective by scientific literacy, every athlete will react differently to his low back rehab program. How can we determine if an athlete will better answers to other therapies? How can we modify our actions and manipulations to help the athlete recuperate faster?

This lecture will update one’s knowledge on how to interpret their clinical findings and finding red flags. Helpful screening tools and clinical case studies involving athletes will enlighten new strategies to treat LBP.

A Love Triangle; the Diaphragm, the Psoas and the Spine

Your tight diaphragm may have instigated your hamstring strains. Your toned psoas could be the result of a compensatory breathing pattern. Your spinal curvature may be the product of your diaphragm, psoas and hamstrings battling for the postural stability – A torturous relationship resulting in agony.

Throughout this cutting edge talk and workshop, we will describe the fundamentals of:

How the diaphragm, psoas and spine can influence functionality and position of each other as well as the 5 other appendages.

Assessment and treatment protocols explored through a new forward-thinking lens on proximal to distal bone, joint and muscle movement.

How to apply simple strategies to your coaching toolbox to upgrade clients’ regeneration & performance programs.
