Free Webinar: Rehabilitation of Offensive Lineman Utilizing Aquatic Therapy Following Syndesmotic Ankle Reconstruction
One of the biggest concerns for a collegiate athlete recovering from an injury is whether they can stay in shape throughout the rehabilitation process. Additional conditioning time after rehabilitation is complete can mean even more time off the field. Aquatic therapy allows athletes to maintain conditioning while they rehab meaning that they are closer to playing shape when they have recovered from their injury.
Join us on February 11, 2016 from 1:00pm to 2:00pm EST for the free webinar on, “Rehabilitation of Offensive Lineman Utilizing Aquatic Therapy Following Syndesmotic Ankle Reconstruction.” Webinar presenter, Brian Lund, MS, ATC, LAT, University of Wisconsin Assistant Athletic Trainer for Football, will share the specific rehabilitation methods he utilized while treating a football player after syndesmotic ankle reconstruction.
Brian will give an overview of all the different tools and facilities that the University of Wisconsin sports medicine team has available and, more specifically, the different ways they use aquatics to benefit their athletes. Brian’s main focus will be the case study of an offensive lineman who required ankle reconstruction. He will review the whole rehabilitation progression from the injury diagnosis all the way to the end of his rehabilitation and his achievements post-recovery. Brian will use pictures and video to demonstrate specific exercises used in the water, as well as the pros and cons of each exercise. A Q&A session will conclude his presentation, allowing the audience to ask questions with regard to the case study and his experience with hydrotherapy.
As a result of attending this webinar, attendees will learn:
• How the University of Wisconsin sports medicine team uses hydrotherapy to treat injured athletes
