2:00pm - 3:30pm Breakout Session: Special Considerations for Chiropractors when Managing Female Athletes
Saturday Oct 14 - Crestone Ballroom - B
This is an exciting time for women in sports; laws are changing, opportunities have become available, and women are discovering their athletic potential. The female athlete also has choices that were not available to previous generations. It is a time of discovery as we learn what the female athlete is capable of accomplishing. "We" includes all of us, as coaches, parents, friends, the media, treating professionals, fans, and young athletes themselves. In some ways, what we learn about women athletes will be similar to what is expected in male athletics; however, the female athlete will bring a whole new set of attributes and stylistic differences to sport. It will be important not to limit her with our expectations; rather, we must encourage her to excel to her fullest capabilities.
