International Journal of Athletic Therapy & Training Online and Print Subscription
International Journal of Athletic Therapy & Training provides insights into issues in professional practice, highlights techniques in clinical sports health care, shares experiential knowledge, and presents practical applications of current research.
The responsibilities assumed by athletic trainers and athletic therapists demand continually updated knowledge on a variety of topics and impose severe constraints on the amount of time available for reading. In a concise bimonthly format, the International Journal of Athletic Therapy & Training (IJATT—previously titled Athletic Therapy Today) provides insights into issues in professional practice, highlights techniques in clinical sport health care, shares experiential knowledge, and presents practical applications of current research. Because of IJATT’s dedication to presenting current information on the widest variety of topics, the Medical Library Association identified it as one of three source journals for athletic therapists.
IJATT contains regular columns that address the daily challenges facing athletic trainers and athletic therapists. These columns offer tips for counseling athletes, techniques for injury management, prevention strategies, alternative and complementary concepts, athletic trainer education, functional rehabilitation, clinical and corporate perspectives, clinical evaluation and testing, and sport nutrition. In addition, IJATT offers book reviews and articles addressing a physician’s perspective on athletic training and therapy, disabilities and special needs, and professionalism and ethics. Each issue includes a continuing education quiz that can be completed online for free BOC CEUs.
Some specific topics IJATT has recently covered are workplace bullying in clinical settings, ultrasonography for diagnosis of myositis ossificans, effects of kinesio tape on shoulder ROM, impact of health care reform on athletic training, and assessment of knee flexors and extensor muscle balance. IJATT will continue to showcase articles that assist athletic trainers and athletic therapists in their daily practices.
IJATT is also available in an online format, which provides subscribers with the same authoritative content of the print edition but with additional advantages, including the ability to search entire issues in seconds and access to back issues. The content of the online version is available weeks before the print version arrives by mail, and online subscribers can receive the table of contents of each issue by e-mail when a new issue is published. In addition, the popular BOC CEU quiz is now available exclusively in the online format. You can view the results of your quiz immediately and track your personal quiz history. Earning BOC CEUs has never been easier than it is now with an online subscription to IJATT.
