Functional Rehab of the Knee (Puyallup, WA)


Functional Rehab of the Knee (Puyallup, WA)

Course Description


Focuses on evidence -based therapeutic value-designed exercise applications that promote tri-plane stabilization of the lower extremity. Attendees will explore the most up to date treatment plans for selected knee pathology. They will participate in labs which will include pre-functional mobility, tri-plane stabilization and balance proprioception training

  • By the end of the course, participants will be able to correctly describe the difference between joint instability and compression protocols for anterior knee pain
  • By the end of the course, participants will list 3 benefits to performing closed kinetic chain loading exercises for patella-femoral stabilization
  • By the end of the course, participants will be able to describe the safe range of motion for closed kinetic chain exercise status-post ACL reconstruction in each phase of rehabilitation
  • By the end of the course, participants will be able to develop an exercise treatment progression following a criterion-based protocol for meniscus repair
  • By the end of the course, participants will list 3 treatment precautions for articular cartilage resurfacing.
  • By the end of the course, participants will be able to describe correctly patello-femoral biomechanics during open and closed kinetic chain knee flexion.
  • By the end of the course, participants will be able to determine the appropriate treatment phase of rehabilitation given a case study for an ACL reconstruction.
