OUR knowledge is GROWING…are you???

Who is Brian Farr?

His full bio on the UT website is here: https://education.utexas.edu/faculty/brian_farr

Brian Farr has been the Director of the Athletic Training Program since its inception in 2002.

He was instrumental in creating the ATP and has led the program through its initial JRC-AT “candidacy” (2002), CAAHEP accreditation (2006), transition to CAATE accreditation (2006), and CAATE re-accreditation (2011). B

He is the co-director and co-founder of the Longhorns Sports Medicine Camp and Director and founder of the Longhorns Lecture Series for Continuing Education, a professional CEU program for area healthcare professionals.

Appropriate care of the Spine Injured Athlete:

  1. Have an EAP with local EMS
  2. Use the “Medical Timeout”
  3. Proper assessment and management of the injury
  4. Remove equipment prior to transport
  5. Equipment removal should be performed by at least 3 experienced rescuers
  6. Know the different equipment for the different sports…and how to remove it
  7. Apply rigid CERVICAL stabilization device prior to transport
  8. Spine injured Athlete should be transported using a rigid immobilization device
    1. NASEMSO does NOT support the use of rigid backboards for transport…only extraction.
    2. Certain situations warrant one but not many spine injuries require transport using a rigid immobilization device
  9. Use techniques to minimize spinal motion
  10. Develop a plan prior to the start of the any events
  11. Patient transport directly to a facility that can handle the spinal trauma.
  12. Collaborate with medical staff, coaches and athletes in prevention of spine injuries
  13. Medical team needs a strong working knowledge of current research
  14. Future research continue to investigate the efficacy of these devices

Why Dr. Konin and Knoblauch?

Dr. Konin has a little experience…

  • Author of 24 published textbooks, actively working on writing 3 textbooks now
  • Books have been translated in Spanish, Portuguese, and Korean
  • Special Tests for Orthopedic Examination in its 5th Edition, Allied Health Best Seller first published in 1997
  • Author of 30 textbook chapters
  • Has published for Slack, Human Kinetics, Elsevier, and self-published

Dr. Knoblauch owns a publishing company

As previously discussed on Imbalances and Disequilibrium, Dr. Buy provera online without prescription owns a small publishing company.

  • Certified as an athletic trainer since 1996, as CSCS since 1997, and licensed as LAT since 1999.
  • PhD in Kinesiology, Post-doc in Molecular Physiology and Biophysics 2012

Blood Flow Restriction FACTS – 556

Ben Weatherford DPT is the Clinical Education Coordinator for Owens Recovery Science. In the lecture at Trinity University about Blood Flow Restriction FACTS he covers a lot of ground.

This presentation may be best viewed on Facebook live as you will be bale to see the slides as he is discussing them.

Blood Flow Restriction EBP

Ben Weatherford discusses how and why to use BFR.

Posted by Sports Medicine Broadcast on Thursday, January 10, 2019

What is BFR?

According to the course objectives on ORS website:


Personalized Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation (PBFR) is a paradigm shifting intervention for the rehabilitation professional with over 160 peer-reviewed articles in the scientific literature. By applying a tourniquet briefly and intermittently to an exercising limb you can induce significant and substantial strength, hypertrophy and endurance changes while using a very light load.

https://www.owensrecoveryscience.com/certification/

So what does it really feel like?

Not bad at all…at first

ORS, Blood Flow Restriction Facts, Ben Wetherford, Trinity University 2019

Then I agreed to do the Push-up Challenge like a BOSS

BFR, ORS, Blood Flow Restriction, Trinity University
30, 15,15,15 – 75 total push-ups

And this is about where i admitted defeat and moved to the modified version

BFR, ORS, Blood Flow Restriction, Trinity University

And later I could barely hold my arms up for the next sessions…

If I could afford the machine and training I would have these at my school.

Role of Residency in AT – 553

Shandra Esparza discusses the Role of Residency in Athletic Training at the 2019 Trinity University Sports Medicine Workshop.

Are you adding depth?

What are residencies?

Same concept as a medical student… an opportunity to dig deeper and learn in a supervised environment.

Furthermore, residencies are a way to add depth to our skill set rather than just learning a little bit about more things.

Why do we need them?

To continue to keep ATs relevant we have to change with the population needs.
If we want to get out of the Athletics Model we must be willing to change our educational paths

Where will they lead us?

Into new practice settings

New skill sets

New Job Opportunities

, residency in AT, Trinity University, 2019
