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.
- 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?
