The Professional Master’s Degree Sports Injury Prevention and Readaptation of TECH trains personal trainers to guide people in exercise for functional recovery.

Sports training requires a good technique to avoid any type of accident or injury, unfortunately, there are people who get injured and need physiotherapeutic rehabilitation training, which focuses on performing the proper movements according to the case, strength training, muscular endurance, and coordination to carry out a specific rehabilitation adapted to work or sporting life. Therefore, the Professional Master’s Degree Sports Injury Prevention and Readaptation trains professionals to carry out this practice to help recovery and prevention of future overloads or injuries.

Having in mind the earlier point, to improve physical condition, they can perform cross-training, which consists of performing different exercises on previously injured areas that should be low in intensity until weakened muscles, tendons, and ligaments are gradually strengthened without the risk of re-injury. Thus, there must be full range of motion and adequate strengthening of the affected limb, and the intensity of the strengthening exercises increases in this phase and increases the following:

  • Agility and coordination.
  • Plyometric activities are performed at a more intense level.
  • Develop flexibility before strength and tendons before muscles (eccentric work).

In summary, exercise itself helps prevent injury because the tissues become more resistant and tolerant to the forces experienced during strenuous activities, but it is important to do it gradually and should always be guided by a professional.
