Describe the relationship between pre-existing conditions and injury prevention.


Description should reflect the importance of taking a history, asking appropriate questions to determine pre-existing conditions, and documenting data. It should also describe how pre-existing conditions can lead to injuries and how knowledge of preexisting conditions can help prevent injuries.

Process/Skill Questions

  • What common pre-existing conditions can contribute to sports-related injuries?
  • Does having a pre-existing injury mean that a person is unable to engage in sports? Why or why not?
  • What questionnaires are available to assess pre-existing conditions? [e.g., Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q)]
  • What are some relevant questions to ask when taking a thorough history?
