One of the most challenging tasks for a sports medicine clinician
is rehabilitating an injured athlete for a successful return to
competition. Effective Functional Progressions in Sport
Rehabilitation provides clinicians with the strategies and tools
they need to prepare their clients for the physical demands
required by their sport. This complete reference helps clinicians
understand the important concepts of functional progressions and
equips them to develop rehabilitation programs specific to the
needs of their clients. The authors break down the text into three
regional areas-upper extremities, lower extremities, and
trunk-before delving into the specific anatomical and biomechanical
differences within each area. They also present the neuromuscular
basis for the specific approaches to each region and provide
exercises in functional progressions that simulate the activity the
athlete needs to perform to be effective in his or her sport again.
Clinicians will also find evidence-based, functional tests and
learn how to interpret and use the test results to develop specific
rehabilitation programs. In that respect, this book will be
particularly useful for designing individualized programs because
clinicians can choose the specific exercises that will most benefit
their clients. The text also features an online component that
allows users access to every image from the text to create
take-home instruction sheets for their clients or to create a
PowerPoint presentation. The images and sample templates are
