Identification of Throwing Pathomechanics and Their Anatomical Origins: An Evidence Based Approach

COST: $ 29.99 - EXPIRATION DATE: 2021-12-31
The majority of shoulder and elbow kinetic forces during throwing occur during arm cocking, acceleration, and deceleration. These phases are marked by distinct time points, which have been used to define throwing mechanics. Athletic trainers have traditionally ignored throwing biomechanics, allowing coaches to use their expertise in an attempt to optimize the performance of their athletes. Two issues exist with this approach. First, some coaches, especially at the youth and high school levels, do not have the education or experience to positively impact their athletes’ throwing mechanics. Secondly, specific biomechanics that relate to injury may be ignored by coaches because of their lack of association with increased ball velocity. Since the rate of injuries resulting from overhead throwing continues to rise, athletic trainers should be able to identify throwing pathomechanics and develop appropriate clinical intervention strategies for athletes who may be at risk.
1) Describe the phases of throwing in which upper extremity loading occurs.
2) Identify which throwing styles are associated with injury.
3) Distinguish the underlying anatomical changes associated with pathomechanics.
4) Apply interventions to treat the potential causes of pathomechanics.
TAKING THIS COURSE
This course consists of 1 lesson and a final exam.
Lesson 1:Identification of Throwing Pathomechanics and Their Anatomical Origins: An Evidence Based Approach
The lessons consist of video and optional supplemental materials. For the final exam, participants can take a maximum of 3 attempts to achieve a passing score of 80% or higher. Participants who achieve a passing score can print out a course certificate of completion. Participants who do not pass the final exam after 3 attempts will need to re-pay for and repeat the entire course to attempt to earn credit.

About the Instructor
Aaron Struminger, PhD, LAT, ATC, Assistant Professor Eastern Michigan University ATEP
Dr. Struminger is currently an Assistant Professor in the Athletic Training Program at Eastern Michigan University. He graduated with his PhD from the University of Delaware after completing his Master's degree at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Before his career in academia, Dr. Struminger worked clinically with baseball, volleyball, and tennis teams, which fostered his interest in the upper extremity. His primary research interest lies in determining the causes of adaptation to the upper extremity, identifying the age at which those changes occur, and preventing injuries in young overhead athletes.
