Evidence-Based Strategies for Post-Operative Rehabilitation and Joint Replacement
September 8 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC-7
Joint replacement has become a popular option for orthopedic surgeons to help patients who suffer from arthritic pain, decreased mobility, joint stiffness, and motion loss. More people are remaining active longer and search for possible solutions to address their increasing functional limitations. An efficient system of accurate assessment, evidence basedtherapeutic exercise and appropriate manual therapies will aid a patient in decreasing their pain, correcting dysfunction and improving functional independence following a joint replacement. In most cases, therapy addresses the quality ofa person’s life and we have the privilege of influencing people’s lives through our interaction with them.
Participants of this one day workshop will be provided with evidence-based treatment options for patients being treated for post joint replacement rehabilitation. Effectivemanual treatment techniques will be taught to improve apatient’s motion and function. Participants will be given protocol strategies and post-operative precautions to treat patients, in a safe and efficient manner, while progressing through each stage of healing. After this dynamic one-day workshop you will be able to return to the clinic and immediately implement the information and techniques taught in this workshop.
