In a clinical and performance world where there are so many experts to follow, the development of a philosophical training model can be difficult to create and implement.
Rather than trying to be exclusive or exclusionary, it’s important to recognize that many schools of thought, when broken down to their core principles, focus on the same things. All techniques, exercise types, treatment protocols and training principles are valuable when bridging the gap from rehab to performance.
The recorded webinar at the video link below is where we’ll start our exploration, taking a closer look at the shared segments that comprise these systems. This is not a dogmatic classification system. Many interventions or schools of thought might fall into more than one category. Each intervention has many parts to it, and in your thought process, one might fit into an entirely different category than listed. This is fine. As you begin to understand the system, think about where each of the phases, disciplines and concepts fits into your personal practice.
Sue Falsone is the President and Founder of Structure & Function Education and Falsone Consulting, along with being an Associate professor at A.T. Still University in the Athletic Training program.
After graduate school, Sue spent 13 years at Athletes’ Performance where she began her focus on Bridging the Gap from Rehab to Performance, working closely with the performance and nutritional teams to create an integrative experience for all athletes.
For over two decades, Sue has immersed herself in the culture, education, and advancement of the athletic training, physical therapy, and strength and conditioning professions.
“Over the course of her career, Sue has been one of the very few individuals who has had a chance to work in all different domains of sports medicine, including injury prevention, rehabilitation, and performance training. This unique experience has given her an amazing perspective on how all three of those areas can, and should, work together. Her new book, “Bridging the Gap from Rehab to Performance,” overviews her approach to this spectrum and shares an amazing perspective laced with clinical pearls that only someone with her experience could offer.”
