Presented by: Kevin Wilk

In this presentation, will analyze several patient case studies, review the existing literature as it pertains to knee motion restriction, and discuss treatment techniques.

Availability: In stock.

Description

Joint stiffness remains the single most common complication following surgical intervention at the knee joint.  We will discuss the post-operative treatment of patients with knee pain & stiffness, specifically how to avoid knee stiffness and how to treat it when it presents. Knee stiffness is a significant problem in orthopedics and sports medicine that physical therapists routinely see.  In this presentation, we will analyze several patient case studies, review the existing literature as it pertains to knee motion restriction, and discuss treatment techniques.

Learning Goals

Upon successful completion of this course, the participants will be able to: 

  • Define knee stiffness
  • Summarize risk factors for knee stiffness
  • Identify knee stiffness presentation in patients
  • Describe rehabilitation techniques for preventing loss of motion in the knee
  • Describe rehabilitation protocols for treating loss of motion in the knee
Behavioral Objectives

1.    Upon completion of the course, the participant will be able to explain 2 differences associated with arthrofibrosis versus loss-of-motion for a patient post ACL repair.

2.    Upon completion of the course, the participant will be able to develop a protocol using 4 treatment interventions for increasing knee extension ROM for a patient post ACL repair.

3.    Upon completion of the course, the participant will be able to apply one alternative method for measuring knee extension loss in a patient with post-operative ACL repair.

4.    Upon completion of the course, the participant will be able to choose 4 clinical treatment guidelines for a patient with an ACL deficiency.
