Quick Overview

Presented by: Rafael Escamilla

This class will look at the different parts of the kinetic chain that affect the knee and "core," meaning the trunk and hip.

Description

This class will look at the different parts of the kinetic chain that affect the knee and "core," meaning the trunk and hip. It will review the literature of trunk and knee musculature activation when performing open and closed kinetic chain exercises and how exercises can be modified to address specific muscles.

Course Evaluation

Learning Goals

Upon completion of this class, you should be able to:

  • Compare Patellofemoral Joint Force/Stree and Cruciate Ligament Force Among Select Open Kinetic Chain (non-weight bearing) and Closed Kinetic Chain (weight bearing) 
  • Relate three requirements for an exercise to be considered weight bearing.
  • Synthesize an exercise program that reduces Patellofemoral force and stress during lunging exercises.

Behavioral Objectives

Upon completion of this class, you should be able to:

Unit 1 - Introduction

  • Compare the benefits of closed vs open chain exercises on the patellofemoral and tibiofemoral joints for the athlete recovering from a sport injury. Benefits of CKC. 
  • Evaluate the efficacy of a closed chain only exercise program in your own caseload of athletes with knee related injuries.  

Unit 2 - Exercise Testing Methods

  • Justify the use of 2 types of equipment to objectively gather data re: muscle tissue, force generated, recruitment, and strength in the documentation record of a patient with patellofemoral pain.  

Unit 3 - ACL/PCL Tensile Force Results for Select Exercises Part I

  • Integrate 2 strength exercises that decrease strain on the ACL in a patient recovering from an ACL reconstruction. 
  • Describe 2, knee, ROM values/degrees that indicate where the highest tensile forces occur on the ACL and PCL in the healthy athlete.  

Unit 4 - ACL/PCL Tensile Force Results for Select Exercises Part II

  • Articulate 2 changes in ACL loading during leg extension exercises with a proximal resistance vs. distal resistance in the ACL deficient athlete. 
  • Integrate 1 exercise with variable trunk position to recruit HS over quad in the rehab program for an ACL deficient patient.
  • Design an exercise program incorporating both open and closed chain exercises in the rehabilitation program of an athlete recovering from a sport related knee injury. 

Unit 5 - Patellofemoral Force and Stress Results for Select Exercises

  • Incorporate one strength exercise, which will reduce patellofemoral stress in the rehab program of a patient with patellofemoral pain. 
  • Describe 2 variables that affect the amount of stress on the patellofemoral joint during strength exercises.

ProCert

ProCert has awarded certification in the amount of 1 Continuing Competence Units (CCUs) to this activity. CCUs are a unit of relative value of an activity based on its evaluation against a rigorous and comprehensive set of standards representing the quality of an activity. The CCU determination is a valuation applying many factors including, but not limited to, duration of the activity. No conclusion should be drawn that CCUs correlate to time (e.g. hours).
