Treating the Arthritic Knee: Current Concepts in Rehabilitation of Patellofemoral Pain and Osteoarthritis
This 2 hour webinar is designed to present an evidence-based approach primarily focused on addressing non-operative patients primarily between the ages of 20 – 50 years old and with varied abilities affected by patellofemoral pain (PFP) and Osteoarthritis (OA). Clinicians will learn a comprehensive approach to treatment including dry needling, soft tissue mobilization, progressive exercises and return to play criteria based on threshold training principles. Rehab principles and information can be applied to postoperative patient populations as well.
At the end of this course, the participant will be able to:
1) Summarize current research related to PFP, OA and exercise to include relevant research on bracing & taping
2) Explain how to screen and assess clients to determine asymmetry and compensatory movement patterns
3) Create an effective rehabilitation program to maximize function
4) Summarize return to play guidelines
