FMT Tactical Athlete Medical Course
Musculoskeletal injuries are one of the leading causes of non-combat related injuries within the Department of Defense.
This course is a new paradigm for decreasing Return-to-Duty timelines and increasing force readiness with each athlete and command.
FMT Tactical Athlete Medic Certification (TAMC) introduces the concept of movement therapy and performance enhancement to create simple and effective non-opiod, musculo-skeletal treatment and selfcare programs for the tactical athlete. Muskulo-skeletal injuries are one of the leading causes of non-combat related injuries within the Department of Defense. This course is a new paradigm for reducing Return-to-Duty timelines and increasing force readiness with each athlete and command.
Discover why using kinesiology tape, compression flossing bands, mobility balls, exercise bands, and rollers are integral for improving mobility and stability rehabilitation programs for the tactical athlete. Basic movement assessments will be used to tackle an evidence-informed, joint by joint approach to movement and functional rehabilitation. This course is an evidence-informed rehabilitation course that redefines our understanding of the effects of elastic therapeutic taping and mobility tools on pain mitigation, injury recovery and prevention.
The primary goals of this course is to help Department of Defense Medics, Corpsman, ATCs, PTs, and OTs assist tactical athletes (Servicemembers) with their selfcare programs. This course is intended for Department of Defense health and fitness professionals with all levels of experience of rehabilitation programming and taping. All supplies needed for the course are provided.
