Advances in the Treatment of the Shoulder & Knee

Course Description: This course addresses one of the most critical opportunities that you face as a clinician. According to information from the National Center for Health Statistics, each year more than 12 million visits are made to physician offices for knee problems and more than 7.5 million for shoulder problems of which 4.1 million were for rotator cuff problems. In 2015, approximately $5 billion was spent on 250,000 ACL injuries alone.

This Shoulder and Knee course is designed to present the most recent and relevant, state of the art information for the treatment of the most unusual and challenging problems of the shoulder and knee joint, things you must know to offer complete, comprehensive treatment options for you patients.

The course provides an evidence-based approach to treatment discussing the latest research and more than 600 actual case studies delivered through lecture, demonstration videos, hands-on laboratory sessions, and open discussions.Attendees will have the opportunity to master new and effective evaluation and treatment techniques and implement them immediately into your practice as you learn from the best.

 

Speaker: Kevin E. Wilk, PT, DPT, FAPTA

 

Day 1 Shoulder-

1.       By the end of the course the participant will explain the definitions of laxity and instability for a patient undergoing an initial shoulder evaluation.

2.       By the end of the course, given the findings of a post-surgery evaluation of a female athlete following rotator cuff repair, the participant will explain 4 specific risk factors associated with the risk of developing stiffness.

3.       By the end of the course, the participant, using evidence-based data for a patient recovering from RC repair, will discuss two rationales of an individualized, gradual, progressive rehab program.

4.       By the end of the course, given a patient following rotator cuff repair, will design a protocol using five advanced strengthening phase exercises.

5.       By the end of the course, for a patient with a diagnosis of Adhesive Capsulitis (frozen shoulder) will develop a comprehensive protocol for rehabilitation.

6.       By the end of the course, for a patient with a suspected SLAP lesion showing high specificity and sensitivity, integrate three tests for evaluation.

7.       By completion of the course, for a non-operative overhead throwing athlete with osteophyte, the participant will be able to design a rehabilitation using 4 components discussed in the course.

Day 2 Knee-

1.       By completion of the course, for a female patient at risk for an ACL Injury, the participant will be able to differentiate between 3 biomechanical and 3 neuromuscular variations.

2.       By completion of the course, for a female athlete at risk for an ACL injury, the participant will be able to explain 3 anatomical variations that increase the risk of injury.

3.       By completion of the course, for a post-operative patient with a non-isolated ACL injury, the participant will be able to explain three side effects.

4.       By the completion of the course, the participant will be able to justify slow rehabilitation for an athlete who has undergone a Hamstring autograph versus an athlete who has undergone bone, patellar, tendon autograft.

5.       By the end of the course, for a patient with an ACL deficiency, the participant will be able to articulate 4 tissue type allografts utilized in reconstruction.

6.       By the end of the course, for an athlete needing to develop core strength, the participant will be able to demonstrate t therapeutic exercises using a Swiss Ball.

7.       By the end of the course, for a post-op athlete exhibiting ACL loss of motion, the participant will be able to choose 4 treatments to increase knee extension and range of motion.

8.       By the end of the course, the participant will be able to explain 5 factors contributing to the development of trigger points in skeletal muscle in a patient with hyperalgesia.
