This course will help to define strategies important in the care of a female athlete, before, during and after injury. We will cover the spectrum of female athletes from youth to the older adult woman, including common injuries sustained, management of those injuries through careful physical assessment and education, as well as techniques in training to facilitate an empowered woman or young girl. We will present a novel approach to evaluation, treatment, fitness management and coaching through an evidence-based approach. This course will cover load progressions strategies for the female athlete, appropriate training strategies and coaching cues to facilitate the safe transition back to sport or activity.
