ACL Injury: a dynamic systems approach to rehabilitation & prevention

This 2-day course is the fourth in line of courses we do with the Team of Frans Bosch. You can only get access to this course if you followed the basic theoretical course “Strength Training and Coordination” (krachttraining en coördinatie theorie) plus either one of the practical courses “Strength Training and Coordination” or the “Anatomy of Agility” course. So after following at least two of these courses, you are then eligible to enrol in this one. In this course, Teun Thomassen, Physical Development Coach of the Dutch Olympic Team and Leigh Egger, Sports Physiotherapist of the first team at Feyenoord Rotterdam, will bring you a Dynamic Systems approach to rehabilitation of ACL injuries. This course will show that also in early stages of rehab a dynamic systems approach offers many advantages to meet the requirements of high intensity movement in sports. After this course you will be able to develop and guide knee-injury prevention programs and an ACL-rehab process based on modern ideas of motor learning.
The theory in this course is done online before attending the live meetings. The live meetings will start with a Q&A of one hour. The rest of the live day is fully filled with hands on practical training and completing assignments
