A: Explore different types and causes of common sporting injuries and how they affect sports performers

Unit 6: Sporting Injuries

Level: 3

Unit type: Internal

Guided learning hours: 60

Unit in brief

Learners will develop the skills needed to identify common sporting injuries, their potential causes and how they can be managed with different rehabilitation interventions and exercises.

Unit introduction

For those participating in sports, injuries are a common occurrence. It is important that those involved in sport gain an appreciation and understanding of how the body responds to different injuries and the key factors to consider in the prevention and reduction of injuries. It is also important to understand how effective treatment and rehabilitation can reduce the amount of time spent out of sports participation. There are both high- and low-risk factors involved in sports participation, and you will need to appreciate both the physiological and psychological mechanisms of injury in terms of its occurrence, treatment and rehabilitation. This unit will give you a clear understanding of how injuries can happen, the immediate responses of the body that should occur to promote healing, along with the potential strategies for injury management. This includes what can be done to promote recovery and help sports performers return to their pre-injured state in the shortest and safest possible time frames.

In this unit, you will explore how the body responds to different types of injury, the causes, why some sports performers are more predisposed to certain injuries, and examine the importance of injury prevention. Having identified these risk factors, you will then look at the different methods used to minimise risk. You will explore the problems associated with injury prevention and build on existing knowledge of how to recognise the onset of injury, and how this can be best managed and treated.

This unit will help you to progress to employment in sports facilities, sports therapy and rehabilitation. The unit will also help you to progress to further study in higher education or professional qualifications in related sports, sports sciences, sports therapy and physical activity.

Summary of unit

Learning aim

Key content areas

Recommended assessment approach

A Explore different types and causes of common sporting injuries and how they affect sports performers

A1 Types of sporting injuries

A2 Mechanisms of common sporting injuries

A3 Physiological responses to injury

A4 Psychological responses to injury

A written assignment that focuses on common injuries in contact and non-contact sports to the upper limb, lower limb, the head, neck or spine.

Details will be linked to the importance of recognising the mechanism of common injuries and the body’s response.

B Explore risk factors for the management and prevention of common sporting injuries

B1 Extrinsic risk factors B2 Intrinsic risk factors B3 Preventative measures

A presentation that covers the key risk factors for different sports venues, supported with methods for the prevention

of injuries. This can be linked to risk analysis plans for the identified injuries in learning aim A and the treatment plans in learning aim C.

Two separate treatment and rehabilitation plans over a clearly identified and appropriate time frame.

These could be in the format  of rehabilitation diaries and broken down into weekly sessions, which will include the treatment and exercise plans for the injured sports performer and will be supported with a summary report and an evaluation of  the rehabilitation plans.

C

Develop treatment and rehabilitation programmes for common sporting injuries

C1 Treatments and interventions

C2 Planning programmes

C3 Rehabilitation programmes
