- This telecast will include a lecture, video & live patient demonstration in the rehabilitation of a patient following ACL reconstruction. The instructor will provide the evidence for the most effective treatment of ACL injuries and concomitant pathologies. This course will discuss and demonstrate rehabilitation techniques from week 3 to week 8 following surgery. The instructor will discuss how to design a rehab program, select specific exercises and ROM guidelines for the patient with isolated ACL surgery & concomitant lesions with the ACL injury.This live web-telecast will also be available to students who were unable to view the live web-telecast. Participants who view the on-demand web-telecast will be required to demonstrate mastery of the presented materials through completion of an online assessment or test.
