NEW EDITION, What they don’t teach you in school - 2020 Recent Advances in the Treatment of the Shoulder & knee – Evidenced Based Treatments and Techniques - 1-day or 2-Day Course (50% Lab, 50% hands-on)
This course addresses one of the most critical opportunities that you face as a clinician. According to information from the National Center for Health Statistics, each year more than 12 million visits are made to physician offices for knee problems and more than 7.5 million for shoulder problems of which 4.1 million were for rotator cuff problems. In 2015, approximately $5 billion was spent on 250,000 ACL injuries alone.
This Shoulder and Knee course is designed to present the clinician the most recent and relevant, state of the art information for the treatment of the most unusual and challenging problems of the shoulder and knee joint, things you must know to offer complete, comprehensive treatment options for you patients.
The course provides an evidence-based approach to treatment discussing the latest research and more than 600 actual case studies delivered through lecture, demonstration videos, hands-on laboratory sessions, and open discussions.
Attendees will have the opportunity to master new and effective evaluation and treatment techniques and implement them immediately into your practice as you learn from the best.
"Even if you have gone to one of my courses before – you should still come to this one – It’s a different course & it’s going to be great! The Return to Play Testing will be interesting & fun!
I am very proud to offer this course to you – I think you will learn, laugh, interact & enjoy it."
