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.
