St. Charles College Students learn to tape injuries as part of the CARDS Sports program
CARDS Sports Specialty Program puts the focus on taping injuries
Students who are part of the High Skills Major in Health and Wellness got to try their hand at taping injuries this past week.
They learned how to properly assess an ankle injury and studied recovery time. The students also learned how to apply basic support mechanics in order to return to sport.
Their teacher, Mrs. Poirier says “Students are not only presented with the information necessary for injury assessment but are given the time, material and guidance to feel comfortable performing basic skills. My goal as their teacher is to ensure they develop the knowledge and confidence to help others if a situation arises.”
The students in the Health and Wellness class will continue to learn about sports injuries, treatments and preventions with focus was on rehabilitative taping skills.
