The Gymnastics Injury Concepts Everyone Must Know

This week’s podcast is the first lecture from our recent and very popular 2022 Gymnastics Rehabilitation Virtual Summit.

The three-day event was aimed at helping medical providers who work with gymnasts, gymnastic coaches, and S&C coaches learn the exact exercises, manual techniques, and programs needed to treat gymnastic injuries.

In this lecture, I explain the five phases of rehab. 

When working I work with an injury, implementing these phases in order and following the timelines I have an excellent success metric. 

This is my step-by-step guide from the beginning incident to a smooth return to sport along with exercises to get above and beyond your past level of strength, power, capacity, and flexibility.

I discuss:

  • Main focuses for each of the 5 phases of injuries. 
  • Why manual therapy is not the main thing I do. 
  • The importance of interdisciplinary care in pain management.
  • What are the five phases of rehab?
  • When to progress between phases of recovery.
  • The importance of maintaining workload. And…
  • An example of a 12-week ACL program.
