Journal of Sport Rehabilitation Evidence-Based Practice Online CE Course: The Ankle

Journal of Sport Rehabilitation Evidence-Based Practice Online CE Course: The Ankle

$60.00 USD


Product Format
    Course components are delivered online:
    • Five evidence-based practice articles from the Journal of Sport Rehabilitation
    • Continuing education exam

    Learning Objectives
    After completing this course, you will be able to do the following:
    • Develop an evidence-based treatment strategy for patients with chronic ankle instability using dynamic balance training and joint mobilizations (for short-term benefits).
    • Implement an evidence-based assessment protocol that avoids tests that fail to detect functional impairments among individuals reporting chronic ankle instability.
    • Describe if and when ankle taping and stretching may have beneficial effects on risk factors for ankle injuries (e.g., reaction time, range of motion).

    This continuing education course consists of a collection of five evidence-based articles about the ankle, originally published in the Journal of Sport Rehabilitation (JSR). Topics explore a range of issues to help athletic trainers understand and apply techniques to address ankle sprains and improve ankle function. Articles cover topics such as Graston instrument-assisted soft-tissue mobilization, use of functional performance tests, and taping. The articles are followed by an exam containing 50 questions. Upon passing the exam, individuals may print out and submit a certificate for continuing education credits. 

    Journal of Sport Rehabilitation Evidence-Based Practice: The Ankle CE Course supports the initiative in the athletic training profession to integrate the best new research and evidence into clinical decision making with the goal of improving patient outcomes. Certified athletic trainers completing this course may earn continuing education units to apply toward the newly required evidence-based practice category to maintain their certification.
