Learn implications of the latest surgical approaches when designing treatment strategies and dosing for patients post joint arthroplasty or fracture repair. Surgical updates have led to outpatient total joint replacements, post-op day 0 hospital-based evaluations, little to virtually no post-operative precautions and a shorter rehab course. This course will review the impact of these surgeries on rehab treatment including principles of fundamental biomechanics and its importance when designing, programming and dosing post-op and non-op exercise programs.

Learn implications of the latest surgical approaches when designing treatment strategies and dosing and for patients post joint arthroplasty or fracture repair. There is a changing and evolving landscape for joint arthroplasty and surgical fixation of fractures which has resulted in minimally invasive procedures leading to true tissue sparing. These surgical updates have led to outpatient total joint replacements, post-op day 0, hospital-based evaluations, little to virtually no postoperative precautions and a shorter rehab course. This course will review current surgical procedures and components and their relation to rehabilitation services. We will review principles of fundamental biomechanics and its importance when designing, programming and dosing post-op and non-op exercise programs; realizing sometimes “less is more” to facilitate optimal functional outcomes. Attendees will have several opportunities for lab-breakout sessions throughout this 2-day course working their way from the hip to the knee to the shoulder. Lastly, attendees will have the option to bring one of their own case studies from their clinical practice to share with the group within a “problem-solving” theme.
- Describe current surgical approaches and components for hip, knee, and shoulder
- Explain the biomechanical aspects of selected prosthetic joint components
(including the use of cement vs. press-fit vs. bio-ingrowth) and their relation to physical therapy treatment
- Interpret “yellow and red flag” findings to either support or abort physical therapy
- Apply evaluation methods and intervention strategies to optimize functional outcomes
- Create ‘task-specific’, ‘ADL-related’, and functional “home-based” interventions that
can be modified and manipulated to each patient’s unique living environment
