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

Price: $29.95 
Item # Q3511  

Expiration Date: February 22, 2020
 
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.

Emily Slaven, PT, PhD, OCS, FAAOMPT, received a bachelor of physiotherapy degree from University College Dublin, Ireland in 1996 and a master of physiotherapy degree from University of Manchester in 2001. After practicing for several years as a physical therapist in an orthopedic outpatient setting in Indiana where she worked with a large caseload of patients who had undergone joint arthroplasty, she developed an interest in being able to better quantify motion following lower joint arthroplasty and completed a masters degree in biomechanics from Ball State University, Indiana in 2008 and then a PhD in physical therapy from Nova Southeastern University in 2010. The topic of her PhD dissertation was “Prediction of Functional Outcome at Six Months Following Total Hip Replacement.” This study was published in Physical Therapy Journal and several presentations of different aspects of the study were presented nationally. Additionally, Dr. Slaven has completed the American Physical Therapy Association’s Orthopedic Clinical Specialization examination and a fellowship in manual therapy at Duke University Medical Center, North Carolina.

Dr. Slaven is an associate professor in the Krannert School of Physical Therapy at the University of Indianapolis where she teaches orthopedics and manual therapy in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program. Her research has focused on the impact of lower limb arthro­plasty on mechanics of gait and on the effect of physical therapy interventions for those who have hip osteoarthritis. She continues to prac­tice clinically where she sees patients both as inpatients and outpatients following total hip arthroplasty.

Total Knee Arthroplasty: Current Concepts in Physical Therapy Management

Price: $29.95 
Item # Q3509  

Release Date: March 10, 2017

Expiration Date: March 10, 2020

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 
Item # Q3503  

Release Date: March 23, 2016

Expiration Date: March 23, 2019

Although advancements in imaging technology have improved the understanding and identification of underlying causes of hip pain, there remains a lack of evidence relating specific abnormalities identified with symptoms and functional limitations. On average, it takes 21 months for individuals to receive a 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. This intermediate-level course focuses on FAI and acetabular labral tears with some discussion of hip instability, chondral injury, and commonly related extra-articular pathologies.
