This work follows three unique cases of athletic injuries and/or injuries in patients. These cases were selected because of the innovative nature of the rehabilitation process conducted by the sports medicine team via the athletic training room or the unique nature of the injury/case.
The first is a concussion sustained from a motor vehicle accident in a collegiate female thrower. This is unique because it’s a non-sport related concussion handled as an athletic trainer would handle a sports related concussion. It also demonstrates a new unique protocol for concussion management.
The second case is a patient with two complete anterior cruciate ligament tears in contralateral knees sustained at different times with different surgical repair techniques. The patient is a collegiate, female lacrosse athlete. This case is unique because of the dual injuries as the different surgical procedures in the same patient.
The third and final case is a collegiate baseball player who sustained an ulnar collateral ligament tear due to overuse. It was surgically repaired and rehabilitated with the Advanced Thrower’s Ten Protocol rather than the Thrower’s Ten Protocol which makes this case more unique.
