PAR: Post-Arthroplasty Rehab of the Knee and Shoulder


Focuses on current evidence based interventions for promoting high level functional return to a patient’s requested level of daily activities. This presentation will be based on the speaker’s 39 years of practical experience in treating total joint replacement of both the knee and shoulder. Today’s surgical procedures including less invasive options such as unicompartmental (knee) and hemiarthroplasty (shoulder) will be presented. Reverse prosthesis for total shoulder replacement will update a protective exercise protocol based on current literature.

  • By the end of the course, participants will be able to select the three most important post-operative interventions for early total knee replacement to stabilize gait
  • By the end of the course, given a case study of a total knee replacement, participants will independently develop a treatment plan broken into 3 phases of healing
  • By the end of the course, participants will be able to create 4 functional training activities that are evidence based to improve knee mobility.
  • By the end of the course, participants will be able to revise a standing treatment protocol for a reverse total shoulder replacement based on a patient case problem.
  • By the end of the course, participants will be able to correctly modify an exercise to match isometric, active, and eccentric muscle contraction.
