Total Hip Arthroplasty: Current Concepts in Pre- and Postsurgical Physical Therapy

Price: $29.95 Hours:3 Contact Hours
Item # Q3511  

This course will provide physical therapists and physical therapy assistants with a comprehensive overview of THA. At the end of this course the learner will be able to identify the anatomy of the hip as it pertains to THA, describe the most recent advances in surgical approaches for THA, and gain an improved understanding of how different types of prosthetic implants, methods of fixation, and surgical techniques influence the ability of patients to participate in rehabilitation and achieve the desired clinical goals for functional independence. Additionally the learner will be able to describe the role of PT both in the preoperative and postoperative phases for the patient undergoing THA and be able to describe an optimal rehabilitation program for these time periods based on current research. Clinical cases presented will facilitate the learner being able to select appropriate rehabilitative strategies following THA.

Total Knee Arthroplasty: Current Concepts in Physical Therapy Management

Price: $29.95 Hours:3 Contact Hours
Item # Q3509  

Release Date: March 10, 2017

In the United States, total knee arthroplasty is one of the most common elective surgical procedures with more than 700,000 procedures performed each year. Research is ongoing, but most experts contend that for the most successful postoperative outcome, rehabilitation is an essential component of recovery.  Physical therapists must have an in-depth knowledge of current best practice for this population to maximize their return to function and quality of life. Additionally, with the emergence of new reimbursement models for Total Joint Replacement care, it is essential for physical therapy practitioners to utilize the most appropriate outcome measures in data collection and reporting.  The purpose of this intermediate level course is to provide physical therapists and physical therapist assistants with a comprehensive overview of the many considerations surrounding knee replacement surgery, including the relevant anatomy, epidemiology, patient selection criteria, surgical considerations, common postoperative complications, and rehabilitation strategies.  This course discusses the pre and postoperative patient management, rehabilitation goals and treatment in the acute, post-acute, and functional recovery stages.  This course, which is relevant for physical therapists and physical therapy assistants, provides evidence-based research that supports rehabilitation treatment methods and outcomes following total knee arthroplasty while highlighting the areas in need of further study.

Nonarthritic Hip Pain: Current Concepts in Conservative and Postoperative Rehabilitation

Price: $39.95 Hours:4 Contact Hours
Item # Q3503  

Release Date: March 23, 2016

Nonarthritic hip joint pain can be due to a variety of intra-articular pathologies, including acetabular labral tears, femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), structural instability, chondral lesions, loose bodies and ligamentum teres tears. Acetabular labral tears and FAI have recently received a significant amount of attention as potential sources of hip pain in the absence of osteoarthritis at the hip in younger and more athletic populations. Nonarthritic hip pain may lead to avoidance of or decreased participation in a variety of activities and a significant reduction in an individual’s quality of life. There has also been increased interest in the identification and understanding of the underlying mechanisms leading to the development of acetabular labral tears. Physical therapists have an integral role in the early identification of nonarthritic hip symptoms, accurate diagnoses allowing for more effective treatment and rehabilitation, and in providing education specific to activity modification and injury risk reduction.

Although advancements in imaging technology and protocols have allowed improved understanding and identification of underlying causes of hip pain, there remains a lack of evidence relating specific abnormalities identified with symptoms and functional limitations. Despite increasing awareness and available evidence related to nonarthritic hip pain, diagnosis and efficient management remain challenging. In fact, on average it takes 21 months for individuals to receive a definitive diagnosis after the onset of their pain/symptoms. This delay results in increased frustration for the individual as well as significant reductions in his or her activity levels. If clinicians are made aware of meaningful subjective reports and findings during examination, the efficiency of medical care for this population should improve.   

The information in this intermediate-level course focuses mainly on FAI and acetabular labral tears with some discussion of hip instability, chondral injury, and commonly related extra-articular pathologies. In addition, this course covers the pertinent anatomy, evidence-supported evaluation techniques, and conservative and postoperative rehabilitation, as well as return-to-sport considerations and functional activities, specific to this population.
