Foundations of Sports Medicine
Justin Shipp
Friday, April 01, 2016

The Foundations of Sports Medicine class had a lot of fun with this unit and wanted to share some of the pictures Mr. Shipp took of them learning. This unit was all about bracing, splinting, and taping. They learned how to identify and fit several different braces that could be used on athletes various injuries. They learned how to use vacuum splints and how to make their own custom splints out of thermo-moldable plastic. They also learned how to tape an ankle, wrist, thumb, and elbow. My students really enjoyed the hands-on learning. Some of the other hands-on units are spine boarding, CPR / First Aid, and modalities (how to use ice, heating pads, ultrasound, stimulation, and laser therapy). If these sound interesting to you consider signing up for Mr. Shipp's sports medicine classes next year.
