Sport and Exercise Rehabilitation
On this module you’ll learn about the structure of an exercise rehabilitation plan and will be given the opportunity throughout the module to plan, implement and evaluate your own programmes. You'll be given the knowledge that will allow you to progress and make modifications to sessions while also identifying when a regression may be necessary. This module will give you the baseline knowledge to justify the use of your chosen exercises and allow you the opportunity to utilise specialist rehabilitation equipment.
Spinal Assessment and Mobilisation
This module will develop your critical awareness of manual therapy and mobilisation techniques to the vertebral joints of the body. Topics covered will include: Common conditions/ injuries of the spine, including aetiology, appropriate clinical features and their management and clinical reasoning skills to develop a rational approach to the selection of manual techniques.
Upper Limb Sports Injuries and Assessment
This module will develop your critical awareness of the assessment and management of upper limb peripheral joints of the body. Within the practical component you will develop your clinical handling skills and communication skills with injured athletes. You'll have the opportunity to develop your knowledge of anatomy, mechanisms of injuries, signs and symptoms, findings on examination and assessment, and treatment of injuries.
Physiological Testing for Sport and Exercise
This module builds upon the knowledge learnt in level 4 and develops this further through the application of knowledge to a sporting environment. You'll be introduced to the critical processes of writing a needs analysis, data collection and appropriate testing protocols for a range of athletes and sports.
Sport and Exercise Biomechanics
On this module you’ll investigate underpinning theory concerning the protocols used, as well as gain practical awareness of related software and techniques. You will also learn to process the resulting data in order to make meaningful and appropriate interpretation of athletes’ actions in relation to injury occurrence and/ or injury prevention.
Applied Research and Study Design in Sports Performance
On this module, you'll learn how to investigate discipline specific issues using both quantitative and qualitative methods of inquiry. Building on the work covered at level 4, you will demonstrate how to formulate an ethically sound and objective research question based on a comprehensive review of the literature.
