SpOrTs MeDiCiNe - 15 mArKeR
Hey... yobbo (i don't mean that in a bad way)..
the sports med 15 marker was really good if ya think about it but youre right about taping and bandaging, it was not alot of our notes... HOWEVER... we needed (well, my teacher told me i was right - i hope she knows what she's talking about) to discuss how protective equipment is characterised (eg, helmets, goggles, nose plugs, mouthgaurds etc), talk about how it is imperative that hey are fitted properly and for the purpose (i.e mouthgaurds need to be adjusted as they differ in size from person to person and can cause more harm thatn good if they are not fitted accordingly), describe and provide examples of sports which have implemented rules and regulations in their sports that states that participants MUST wear safety equipment (e.g. boxing, or even exterior protective equipment such as rubber covers on netball posts to reduce risk of collission) and just stuff like that... then for taping and bandaging you just waffle on about how they both can be used for preventative and management purposes, what they do, how they do it and if they achieve the perpose for which they are intended... then, the last bit of the question stated that why would these things (taping, bandaging and protective equipment) be use to ensure and athlete's WELLBEING... so you have to talk about social well-being (how they can socialise without fear of injury), psychological well-being, physical well-being (obviously), economic well-being (taping/bandaging are cost-effective as opposed to surgery etc) and mental/emotional well-being!! I hope that in some way you integrated all this into your answer and you can now rest easy!! Good luck everyone and i hope you get the results you all are hoping for... Keep smiling and good luck with the rest of your exams!!
