Before I tell you about a brand-new resource – launching today – that’s going to transform your ability to treat and rehabilitate sporting injuries, let me quickly set the scene...
Imagine that your client – a 35 year-old competitive distance runner – visits you for the latest round of treatment for a recurring knee injury.
You’re under pressure to get them back out and training again as soon as possible, as they’re gearing up to participate in a forthcoming 10k run.
Much to your (and your client’s) dismay, the injury shows no signs of abating.
None of the ‘conventional’ methods of treatment seem to be working. You’ve tried everything you can possibly think of, but you’re not seeing the results you’d expect.
It seems that no matter what you do, the pain persists and the more likely it is that your client will have to give up all hope of being ready for that race.
But surely, there’s something you’re missing here...
Could there be another cause for the injury that you’ve not considered? Or a new, more effective treatment you’re not yet aware of?
So, where can you go to get the answers you need?
You’re about to find out.
Every day, you’re challenged with getting your clients on the road to recovery. Or even better, stopping them from harming themselves in the first place.
And in the modern game, that means finding solutions that are time-efficient, yet long-lasting. (After all, preventing re-injury is as much a part of sports medicine today as is treating the initial problem itself.)
Until now, you’ve probably ‘stuck by the book’ and relied on what you learned in your professional training, for when you work with athletes.
But after years of publishing Sports Injury Bulletin, I can safely say that the successful management of athletic injuries requires you to have an open mind and keep right up-to-date with the latest advances in sports medicine.
There are faster diagnosis tools. Cutting-edge treatments. More effective recovery strategies. Brand-new prevention techniques.
If you’re not aware of them, then neither you, nor your clients, are taking advantage of the pioneering research that others around the globe are already benefitting from.
This is precisely why the experts at Sports Injury Bulletin have created The Sports Medicine Encyclopaedia.
This resource is the definitive reference for sports injury professionals like you, for finding the answers to the problems you face every day when working with injured athletes.
Inside, you will find 12 volumes filled with a wealth of practical information; putting exercises, rehab plans, case studies, research summaries and much more instantly at your disposal.
You will gain an in-depth insight into the treatments top physiologists and sports doctors are using right now to help athletes with a wide range of injury problems, from the merely minor to the truly career-threatening.
Once you’ve secured your copy, you’ll be able to:
Assess your clients’ injuries more effectively
Utilise breakthrough methods of treatment
Manage your clients’ pain while suffering an injury
Protect your clients’ bodies from future harm
I guarantee that you won’t be able to find this level of information anywhere else.
And what’s more, this information is worth $567.88 when purchased as separate volumes. I’m not even asking for triple figures today.
In a nutshell, The Sports Medicine Encyclopaedia covers the complete spectrum of injury management, rehabilitation and prevention.
It is 833 pages of authoritative, cutting-edge information that sheds light on often-undetected injury causes, highlights common misconceptions and presents you with new ways of approaching diagnosis and treatment.
In other words, it’ll bring you right into line with current best practices and thinking.
Each body part (or group of parts) has its own dedicated volume, making it quick andeasy for you to get at the answers you need on a particular problem.
As well as outlining the full range of potential injuries you should consider when assessing a patient or client, you’ll also find routes you might not have tried before for treating them, and measures that athletes can take to protect the vulnerable areas of their body.
This is backed up further by a number of case studies that demonstrate how top sports medicine practitioners have successfully administered these treatments to athletes.
With this brand-new resource, you’ll gain instant access to a vault of knowledge on how athletes can injure the following parts of their bodies through sport:
Shoulder Hip Groin Achilles Tendon Knee Leg Back Hamstring
And in addition to these volumes are those focusing on a broad range of injury-based topics (many of which are often neglected by other products on the market), including:
Recovery as a prevention method in training
Core stability training for injury-free performance
Ways to ensure athletes do not come to harm in the gym
Managing pain during injury
And much more
Every treatment has been tested and approved by sports scientists, doctors and exercise physiologists, so you can rest assured that these are techniques that really work.
Plus there’s input from surgeons and hospital consultants, to give you a much fuller picture of how any given injury can affect an athlete.
