You can also use heat with an ultrasound for extra relaxation of the injury, which will also help speed up the healing process. E-Stem is used to tweak muscles and tendons when they are tight and ease tension. This will help the muscle relax; with less tension, there’s less chance of injury to that muscle, tendon, or ligament. There are also many things in the ATR that are used for rehabilitation purposes. For balance exercises, athletes use Bosou balls and balance discs. These not only help improve your balance, but they can also be used to work your core and help strengthen an athlete’s legs and ankles. There are also balance boards of different shapes and sizes. These are used to help strengthen and increase balance with different degrees of difficulty. There are two types of trampolines; one is used for jumping, the other for throwing exercises. The first trampoline can help strengthen an athlete’s ankles and legs. The second is used to throw balls against to help an athlete regain their full ROM and strengthen their shoulder, arm, wrist, etc. after an injury.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
