Return to Sport: Dual Task Testing and Training for the injured athlete recovery and management

April 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

At the highest level, athletes have stored procedural memories, ready to use in their sport. They can adjust these movements in the context of the game with consideration of fatigue, situation, environmental conditions, and opponent. Procedural memories are automatic in nature, and are processed without direct and consistent conscious control. In the most skilled athletes, these movements are resistant to environmental distractions (crowd, opponent taunting, pain)? After a concussion, when is an injured athlete truly safe enough to return, to wield their fully automatized skill in the face of both internal and external distractions? In this course, we will review, APPLY, and ADVANCE the science of procedural learning (regaining automatic function) in sport – revealing applications and insights as to how coaches and healthcare professionals can use dual task testing and training to decide when recovery is feasible AND facilitate recovery of the same. Attendees will get a sneak peek into the emerging world of Dual Task Fitness training – a technology serving as a preventative and rehabilitative application.
