This course will cover the importance of nutrition for sports medicine patients. It will categorize patients into two different groups and provide questions to ask patients in order to identify who may be at greatest risk. We will cover protein recommendations as well as other common supplements. The course will also discuss a new unique nutrition strategy for recovery and injury prevention. This presentation can help physical therapists identify patients who may have opportunities to improve their dietary habits and can better support their rehabilitation. 1 CCU 

At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to:
