Reducing the likelihood of injury and illness is critical when prescribing exercise for health, fitness and/or sports performance. This unit will provide an evidence-based approach to the aetiology of sports injury, the relationship of these injuries to movement and the acute and chronic healing processes, and to the use of exercise as a rehabilitation tool. The unit aims to provide the knowledge, understanding and skills for prescribing exercise with an injury prevention perspective, and for delivering exercise programs following injury that have been prescribed by an appropriately qualified professional.
