Sports Council: Learning How to Tape

Home » Chiropractic Student Blog - Florida » Sports Council: Learning How to Tape

This is my announcement: If you haven’t joined clubs on campus yet, DO IT! Sports Council meets on Fridays at 1 p.m. It is a fantastic way to learn sports medicine treatments, interact with students in different Tris, as well as promote yourself in the community by attending sports events and aiding athletes (under the supervision of the Sports Council Advisor Dr. Guadagno).

Members practice diverse techniques to enhance our abilities in treating athletes and preventing injuries. This past Friday, we learned how to use KT tape on feet and ankles, specifically for Achilles tendonitis and ankle stabilization (to prevent inversion ankle sprains). Sports Council keeps members up-to-date with sports events coming up and helps students hone down skills needed to prepare for that event (such as soft tissue techniques and taping). Members are currently preparing to attend and serve athletes at the upcoming Disney Marathon. There is also an ACA conference approaching (the next one is in October in Denver) where students can present sports-related conditions and topics, meet other researchers, professors, and doctors in the field.(L

It’s a fantastic way to network, present your research, and represent NUHS! Another benefit of joining clubs on campus is that each event you attend can be used toward completing CCLs needed for graduation! If you haven’t attended a meeting yet, don’t be shy…come on by to the next meeting Fridays! Clubs are always accepting new members and the skills learned can truly enhance your techniques and prepare you for the chiropractic field.

Alexandra Simic Hachmann

My name is Alexandra Simic Hachmann and I am currently in my 10th trimester of the Doctor of Chiropractic program here at NUHS - Florida. I am officially an intern at the HEC clinic! I have obtained a B.A. in Biology and Biomedical Sciences, as well as a Master of Medical Science degree. While I believe my educational background has helped me succeed in this challenging program, I appreciate all the professors’ efforts in helping us excel and prepare for our careers. As a hands-on visual learner, I am embracing the palpation courses and anatomy labs offered! I am still determining which field in chiropractic I would like to pursue; thus, readers should stick around to discover this with me! I hope to bring insightful content to this blog and demonstrate what student life is like at NUHS in sunny Florida.
