Exercise and the Injured Client: Musculoskeletal Conditions That You Should Be Aware Of


There is no arguing that Kinesiologists and Personal Trainers have the power to cause effective change in their client’s and prospective client’s lives.  For this reason, Kinesiologists and Personal Trainers should arm themselves with incredible amounts of knowledge to continue to help their clients achieve the continued success of positive change.


We all know that exercise, even supervised by a Kinesiologist or Personal Trainer, is considered risky on some levels.  We push our clients to their physical limits, having them move, lift, pull, and push in ways that sometimes they are not accustomed to.  Some of our clients come into our midst with pre-existing physical limitations or conditions that may be made worse through certain types of physical activity.  On the other hand, research has shown that specific types of exercise is needed for proper rehabilitation of many injuries.  Furthermore, Kinesiologists and Personal Trainers should be knowledgeable enough to recognize the potential for injury and safe guard their client against such injuries.


This course educates Kinesiologists and Personal Trainers on common injuries they may encounter in the course of their career as exercise specialists.  This course is also highly beneficial for Registered Massage Therapists who utilize remedial exercise and home care as part of their model of patient care.

  • Relevant anatomy

  • Cause

  • Clinical presentation

  • Common medical treatment

  • Contraindications and Precautions for Exercise
