    Course material



    This online course is designed at helping therapists to comprehensively manage and treat triathletes presenting at their clinic. This grueling sport attracts a certain type of athlete and comes with its own array of special considerations. Insights will be shared for those who may not be familiar with triathlon, and we will delve further into the specifics that only an expert would know.

    We will cover an in-depth assessment method needed to identify the cause of injury beginning with the key areas to address in the subjective examination and the best tests to utilize in the objective exam. The most common injuries prevalent in the sport will be discussed with effective management protocols including treatment recommendations and progression back to training/racing.

    Sport is all about marginal gains, so we will touch on the importance of nutrition and recovery strategies – both areas often overlooked by athletes that will give therapists a well balanced approach to comprehensive management of the injured triathlete. Time allowing there will be some case studies presented with video footage.

    1) Discuss the specific demands of this sport and the athletes it attracts
    2) Demonstrate a comprehensive assessment process to evaluate the injured triathlete
    3) Discuss the most common injuries in the sport and best management
    4) Address the often overlooked areas of nutrition and recovery that will facilitate healing and enhance performance.
