Game changers: Going to the next level for performance with plant and animal based diets
Speaker: Jim White RDN, ACSM EX-P, Owner of Jim White Fitness & Nutrition Studios
With the fierce competition these days in sports it is more important than ever for coaches and trainers to find ways to give their athletes a competitive edge. Research continues to show that proper nutrition and exercise improves sports performance. Dairy foods have always been a power food group that offers athletes the protein and nutrients needed to support muscle growth and recovery. However, with the ever-growing popularity of plant-based diets many athletes are looking for dairy alternatives to offer them nutrition support. This session will explore the science behind the nutritional, health and sustainability qualities for dairy and plant-based dairy alternatives, and the opportunities both can play in fueling your client’s workout. 1 CDR CPE, 0.1 CE NSCA, ACSM
Stress Fractures in Athletes: How to Prevent and How to Treat? The Balance of Returning to Sport and the Need for Safe Healing
Speaker: Derek Kunz, MD, Saint Alphonsus Health System
Youth sports can improve young kids' physical and emotional health, self-esteem, and even their relationship skills. Unfortunately, young athletes must also compensate for still-growing bones, tendons, and muscles. Sometimes sports injuries happen. The most common type of sports injury is an overuse injury such as a stress fracture. Overuse injuries are becoming more common in young athletes. Playing sports year-round without time off doesn't give young bodies enough time to rest and recover. It is important for parents and coaches to understand how to prevent stress fractures as well as the best treatment methods. This presentation will discuss signs and symptoms of a stress fracture, prevention techniques, guidance on when it is appropriate to follow up with a specialist, and appropriate treatments. 1 CDR CPEU, 0.1 NSCA CEU, 0.1 ACSM CEU
The Female (and Male) Athlete Triad: Updates, Nutrition Implications and Screening Tools to Prevent Low Bone Mineral Density
Speaker: Kim Schwabenbauer, MS, RD, CSSD, Fuel Your Passion LLC
As a result of Title IX, female athletic participation has increased by more than 1000 percent over the last four decades. Numerous physiological and psychological benefits are afforded to those who participate in regular physical activity, including long-term protection against diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes, as well as improved bone health, and a reduction in anxiety. However, medical issues can arise in both active males and females if proper care is not taken to match energy intake to energy expenditure. This presentation will discuss the spectra of nutrition implications and health issues associated with the female and male athlete triad and the updated evidence-based parallels in males. In addition, it will highlight the 2014 Female Athlete Triad Coalition Consensus Statement on Treatment and Return to Play that aims to provide clinical guidelines for physicians, athletic trainers, and other healthcare providers for the screening tools, diagnosis, and treatment of the Triad. 1 CDR CPEU, 0.1 NSCA CEU, 0.1 ACSM CEU
