On May 4th we hosted “Sports Medicine is a Team Sport”, presented by Wade Alberts, LMT, two-time Olympic medical staff member and member of USA swimming team. We met at the Country Inn and Suites in Lincoln.
With 30 attendees and an instructor that keeps the classroom energized, we were able to catch up on the latest techniques in our field and walk away with new strategies and check-lists to incorporate into our daily practices.
Through-out the class, we covered topics such as Femoroacetabular Impingement, Anterior Compartment Syndrome, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Blood Clots. Wade does a great job at giving situations that he has come across in his years of practice which gives the therapist a better insight on how to prepare and be aware when faced with similar scenarios.
In addition to the hands on work, we dove into the ethics portion of class speaking about current events surrounding gymnastics and Olympic sports. Wade familiarized the class with different tools such as SafeSport and background checks that organizations utilize when employing or contracting out massage therapists.
Overall this was a well-rounded class with each student earning 4.5 CE hours which includes .5 CE in ethics.

We are very excited for what we have in store for 2020 Marathon Weekend. We feel we are developing a unique workshop. Once we have details, we will share this as soon as we can.
