JMST First Aid

If you are going to be around horses and rodeo, at one time or another you are going to get banged up. The following pages consist of some basic medical knowledge regarding the recognition and treatment of many of our commonly seen injuries. We have even given you some general information on Nutrition and Supplements you can use at home and on the road for those who have a hectic schedule.

While we by no means intend for this to be a detailed medical text, we enlisted the help of many medical colleagues within the Justin Boots Sportsmedicine Program to get you the most up-to-date help. Please consult a medical professional to get much more detailed information on any or all of these areas.

We will devote a lot of articles and information to helping you be more physically fit and flexible, with specialty work for specific events, so check back often as we update these files and tips.

The core includes all the deep and superficial muscles used to stabilize, align, and move the trunk of the body as well as the pelvis and hips.The core is where the body’s center of gravity is located, and is the root source of all movement whether we’re talking about trunk movement or movement of the extremities....

Taping and Bracing

  • JMST MCL
    Taping for the MCL Injured Knee
    Tips: Always remember to keep the knee bent to approximately 15 degrees (this is easier to maintain with a one inch object under the heel-for example, the cap to the adhesive spray). The more you stretch the tape when applying the strips, the tighter the tape job will be. When going around the thigh or calf be sure to tighten (contract) those muscles. This will decrease the likelihood of making the tape job too tight and causing the underlying muscles to cramp. Spreading baby powder over a completed tape job will help prevent it from binding with your jeans. ...

  • JMST Elbow
    Hyper Extended Elbow
    Tips: Always remember to keep the elbow bent to approximately 30 degrees (as shown in Figure 1). When taping around the Biceps and Forearm, be sure to tighten (contract those muscles. This will decrease the likelihood of making the tape job too tight and causing the underlying muscles to cramp or the hand to go numb. When the tape job is done and you attempt to forcefully straighten the arm, the tape should stop your elbow just short of going straight (approx. 10 degrees.) When taping an elbow, keep the hand/wrist in the position it will be used in your event, i.e. thumb up in Bareback Riding and thumb out in bullriding....
