This class will look at the different parts of the kinetic chain that affect the knee and "core," meaning the trunk and hip.

Description

This class will look at the different parts of the kinetic chain that affect the knee and "core," meaning the trunk and hip. It will review the literature of trunk and knee musculature activation when performing open and closed kinetic chain exercises and how exercises can be modified to address specific muscles.

Learning Goals

Upon completion of this class, you should be able to:

  • Differentiate how various open and closed kinetice chain exercises affect the structures of the knee
  • Describe how the core affects the risk of injures to the ACL
  • Identify core strengthening exercises and how they can be modified to activate specific muscles

Behavioral Objectives

Module 1- Units 1-5

Cruciate Ligament & Patellofemoral Loading during Open & Closed Kinetic Chain Exercise

  1. Compare the benefits of closed vs open chain exercises on the patellofemoral and tibiofemoral joints for the athlete recovering from a sport injury. Benefits of CKC.
  2. Evaluate the efficacy of a closed chain only exercise program in your own caseload of athletes with knee related injuries.

Module 2- Units 1 & 2

Strengthening the "Core" for the Prevention of ACL Injuries

  1. Incorporate 2 plank style exercises with dynamic movement to engage the core for the college athlete who is participating in a training and injury prevention program.
  2. Differentiate between 3 Biomechanical and 3 Neuromuscular variables that increase the risk of an ACL injury in the female athlete.
  3. Identify 3 Anatomical variables that increase the risk of an ACL injury in the female athlete.

Module 3- Units 1-4

Strengthening Exercises for the "Core"

  1. Identify 3 pathological conditions in the pelvis or LE that can stem from poor core strength/stability in an athlete.
  2. Demonstrate 4 therapeutic exercises on the Swiss ball that engage the posterior kinetic chain for an athlete participating in a core strengthening and injury prevention program.
  3. Develop a core- strengthening program of 6 exercises for the high level competitive athlete incorporating the use of a Swiss ball, a cable, a kettle ball and plyometrics.
  4. Explain 2 benefits/advantages of performing Swiss ball strengthening exercises versus the traditional core stabilization exercises for the athlete participating in a core strength program.
  5. Incorporate 3, Swiss ball exercises specific to the external oblique muscles in the core- conditioning program of an athlete.
  6. Describe 1 benefit and 1 disadvantage of a Non-traditional Core strengthening exercise that was demonstrated in core conditioning for an athlete.
  7. Demonstrate a 2-step progression of a plyometric drill for core stabilization in the female athlete.

Module 4- Units 1 & 2 Lab Session

Electromyographic Analysis of Trunk & Hip Muscles During Bridging Exercises

  1. Integrate 4 exercises with the ankles in DF in the rehabilitation program of a college athlete with a LE injury.
  2. Integrate 4 exercises with ankles in PF in the rehabilitation program of a college athlete with a LE injury.
  3. Identify 3 muscle groups that are more active with ankles in DF.
  4. Identify the one muscle group that is more active during exercises with ankles in plantar flexion.
