Journal of Sport Rehabilitation Evidence-Based Practice Online CE Course: The Ankle
Online CourseCourse components are delivered online:
- Five evidence-based practice articles from the Journal of Sport Rehabilitation
- Continuing education exam
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).
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.
A continuing education course for certified athletic trainers seeking further education in evidence-based practice.
