The hip and knee are a complex pairing comprising the structural and functional core of many human movements, from ADL to sport. Rehab professionals such as physical therapists and athletic trainers are in a unique position to evaluate, treat, and oversee the recovery of patients with hip and knee injuries. They also often find themselves in the position to assist with developing injury reduction programs for active populations. Having a deeper understanding of what is known and not known can help professionals develop the most effective programs to address these issues.
This two-day course will include lecture and lab demonstration to explore the complexity of the hip and the knee. Topics including femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), acetabular labral and chondral injuries, gluteal/psoas/patellar tendinopathies, ligamentous injuries, meniscal tears, and patellofemoral pain (PFP) will be discussed. There will also be extensive exploration of postoperative management and return to play strategies for common procedures such as anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR), femoroplasty, and labral and meniscal repairs.
This complex content will be presented in a way that is simple to understand and even simpler to implement by focusing on key concepts in a hierarchical format.
