Youth and adolescent athletes face unique injury risks that render them more vulnerable to premature cessation of sports.  PTs and PTAs can effectively counter this expansive problem with strategic education and treatment interventions.   This course will discuss the unique injury risks for this population, the PT/PTA’s role in this realm, and specific strategies to address the underlying causes of these risks. 

 

Objectives
At the conclusion of this program, the learner will be able to:


1.) Establish the need for instituting injury prevention strategies for youth and adolescent athletes
2.) Distinguish injury risks that are unique to the youth/adolescent athlete
3.) Discuss the PT/PTA’s role in youth/adolescent sports injury prevention
4.) Identify strategies to reduce injury risk in youth/adolescent athletes for specific sports
