To build on the student's previously acquired knowledge of musculoskeletal injuries and their management. Developing an understanding of the role of specific adaptation to imposed demands in the development of exercise rehabilitation programmes for the injured athlete - S.A.I.D. principles.
To develop the ability to evaluate rehabilitation/performance training programmes with regard to their effectiveness and appropriateness to meet an individual's desired performance and rehabilitation goals, and to demonstrate competence in the design and application of this training/rehabilitation programme.
Introduction to S.A.I.D. principle
Adaptations of musculoskeletal tissue to imposed loads, mal-adaptations of musculoskeletal tissue to imposed loads in relation to physiology of soft tissue healing; Development of progressive exercise programmes in relation to this to address specific musculoskeletal pathology for simulated case studies.
Introduction to the concepts involved in movement system balance, assessment of posture, spine, lower and upper limb and balance problems; Development of related treatment programmes for simulated case studies.
Performance analysis of the demands of specific activities, the selection of appropriate training techniques to develop the capacity to meet those demands during mid/end stage rehabilitation using critical examination/analysis of contemporary methods.
Structure of training - to consider the physiology and psychology of the healing process and the physiological and psychological basis of fatigue with strategies to prevent or ameliorate its effects. To organise training units, microcycles and macrocycles, periodising the training year to accommodate injury and meet specific training objectives associated with pre-competition, competition and post-competition and long term injury.

when you have successfully completed this module you will:
to demonstrate that you have achieved the learning outcome you will:
|1.||Apply the role of the S.A.I.D principle in the development of healing tissue. Develop a coherent management strategy to generate movement system balance with the injured athlete.||
Develop advanced exercise rehabilitation programmes for specific musculoskeletal injuries using the S.A.I.D principle.
|2.||Appraise posture and movement system balance of both normal and injured clients, and discuss the implications, use posture and movement system balance assessment findings to develop a coherent and appropriate specific rehabilitation programme
||Design training/rehabilitation programmes to correct the identified deficiencies which are appropriate to the injured individual.|
|3.||Evaluate and make rational judgements with respect to the training needs of individual athletes in context of their particular sport and injury.||Compare the current training status of an individual injured athlete with the demands of their particular sport and identify areas of deficiency.|
|4.||Understand the demands on an injured athlete as a consequence of participation in competitive sports.
Devise training programmes that rehabilitates the injury whilst preparing the athlete to meet those demands.
|Design, implement and evaluate training programmes appropriate for preparation to meet those demands.|
