You have been asking for a course… and here it is!!!
Next summer, at the same time as USA Gymnastics National Congress and Visa National Championships, I will be hosting “Gymnastics Sports Medicine for You”, a comprehensive course for Men’s and Women’s Artistic Gymnastics Medicine.
It will be a very full day, from 730 am – 5pm, filled with information about the anatomy of the body, theories behind injuries, descriptions of injuries, in-gym rehabilitation, how to work with medical staff at your gym, and touch on all of the presentations that I have done for USA Gymnastics! There is not enough time in Congress sessions to delve in to detail about all of the topics. As well, many of the injuries and body parts require cumulative courses, building on previous knowledge, and that is hard to do in the busy days of Congress and with all of the wonderful other topics that are offered! This will not interfere with your Congress attendance, and will only enhance your experience! This is an independent course/day, not affiliated with USA Gymnastics, Olympic Trials or Congress.
If you are not attending congress, and are in town either just for the course, or to see National Championships, this is a great opportunity for you to learn, and then watch the athletes, while thinking about how to apply to your athletes at home, your patients, or your own child!
You will walk away, whether a gym owner, parent, athlete, coach, or medical provider, with a keen understanding of how diagnostic procedures work, theories behind rehabilitation, as well as some advanced biomechanics knowledge for injury prevention and treatment.
A bound manual will be given to you at the course, as well as lunch and break food. Interaction among peers is a key part of this day, as well as open Q and A session.
Location: to San Jose, California (TBA)
Date: Wednesday, June 27th
Please email with any questions about the course, and click on the link on this website to register. Details will be sent out in early Spring. Your space can be reserved, as this is a limited participant class, and payment can be made here on the website. Follow these links for more information on Trials tickets as well and help to support our team at http://sanjose2012.com
Gina will be at 2011 Congress for any questions that you may have about the course, your athletes, or other programs. Stop by the Inside Gymnastics Magazine booth to talk to her at Congress or email in advance to meet. Between working the booth of the magazine, where she is a medical contributor for the company, and working on some of the athletes, she will be available from Tuesday through Sunday.
Thank you for wanting to make your athletes happier and American’s gymnasts healthier!
