That One Parent – Helicopters with Owen Iseminger – 420

Helicopter parents area parents who take an overprotective or excessive interest in the life of their child or children according to Dictionary.com

Owen Iseminger works with more affluent students and parents who tend to be in this group more often.  Through 8 years in this setting he has learned some tips and tricks for dealing with Helicopters.

  1. Be on top of your evaluations
  2. Explain multiple possibilities and how the rehab plan will help the total body.  
  3. Don’t be annoyed or upset if they want a 2nd opinion.
  4. Set them up with the best physician you can even if something minor, they expect to see the best.
  5. Win trust of other parents.  They talk to each other and good gossip about you goes a long way.
  6. Make them feel like their child is important, if they feel like they are 1/100s they won’t accept that.
  7. Always stay professional
  8. Go the extra mile to update them on injuries
  9. Have coaches support, as they will go ask coach about the athletic trainer or for updates.
  10.  Even if kid is not injured, have a relationship with the parent, even if it’s, just a simple hello and asking how their kid is doing.

Alternative Exercises for those who Cannot – 355

We all have that kid who either wants to work really hard and just can't do to injury or that wants to use the injury as a reason to be lazy.  We are also faced with man power issues in that if we cannot babysit those the whole time.  Athletic Trainers need to have a list of exercises to pull from knowing we will not cause harm to the injured site.

Bob Marley is CSCS, works with the Houston Texans, at my Alma Mater Houston Baptist University, East Bernard High School and has 35 years experience.

Shawn Ready is a former Collegiate Athletic Trainer and Cross Fit coach.

AT Cares Program – 347

Still in its infancy the ATCares program being rolled out by the NATA is a phenomenal resource that has been long over due.  I am excited to be a part of the program and have been a helping hand in Bubba Wilson being asked to be the district 6 representative.

Here we focus on the reason for this, basic tips and the effects it has had so far.

My one big take away: Say “I've been in a similar situation” instead of “I know how you feel” because you truly do not know how that person feels.

In case you missed my story here is the full episodes where we dealt with the loss of an athlete.

Episode 135 – Full story, very raw emotions

Episode 190 – After Action Plan – a follow up to the story

Helmet and Equipment Removal With Dr. Prasarn – 325

Bubba Wilson has some questions about the NATA position statement and seeks clarification and understanding.  Few injuries are as scary as spinal cord ones.  To ensure we are following best practices and understand why we are doing what is recommended we have some experts give insight and explanation.

Number one determining factor is time under pressure.  Get the athlete to a level 1 trauma center to reduce pressure on the spinal cord.

We also seek to discuss some of the practical ways to implement these skills into the secondary setting.

Dr. Mark Prasarn is the spine consultant for the Houston Texans and University of Houston.  Some of his research has helped shape the way spine injuries are managed.

Dr. MaryBeth Horodyski is a professor and resident research coordinator at University of Florida.

Rhabdomyolysis from a Patient Perspective – 319

Carmen Solis caught the perfect storm of plane flight, elevation, dehydration, new protein shake, different environment and a slightly new routine to catch a case of Rhabdo.

Dr. Rehal Bhojani explains the facts as he sees them and gives great insight to us in identifying future cases of Rhabdo.

Urine color charts in every stall (male and female) are a top recommendation.  Muddy / orange urine is almost always an indicator of Rhabdo.

Help prevent Rhabdo by easing your athletes back into workouts.  Gone is the idea of “we are going to kill them and make men out of them.”

Brett Singer's Session Audio

We are broadcasting live and interviewing the speakers of the Memorial Hermann's Sports Medicine Update.  It is a great way to continue improving your athletic training practice.  There are always new topics, new aspects of old topics and great re-freshers.

We plan to release the lecture and then the interview.  Through the course of the summer the podcasts will be shorter, more frequent, and a lot more raw (less editing).

All the lectures and handouts have been uploaded and are now available on Google Drive.

Catastrophic Death and injury re-visited: an Action Plan – 190

In episode 135 – Tragedy, Death, Grief, Healing we were fresh off the loss of an athlete in which we performed life-saving skills.  We desire for each school to have an action plan in place to help the Athletic Trainers and coaches deal with the loss for the next 6 months, not just the next week.

Here is our action plan for you to submit to your district and have on file or in place before a catastrophic injury occurs.
