Therapeutic Strategies for Degenerative Joint Disease: Overcoming Pain and Improving Function

OUTLINE

Diagnostic Criteria for Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD)

Patient Presentation

The Pathophysiology of DJD in:

Joint Conservation

Techniques to Maintain Mobility

Medical Management

Surgical

Physical Therapy Management

Total Joint Regimens

Outpatient Rehab

Convalescence

OBJECTIVES

  1. Summarize the commonly-experienced condition of degenerative joint disease.
  2. Explain focused history taking techniques and examination methods to create diagnostic skills for evaluation of upper and lower extremity degenerative joints.
  3. Evaluate the decision-making processes regarding conservative and surgical treatment options for patients with degenerative joints.
  4. Obtain methods to effectively educate patients regarding: the arthritic process, treatment options, recovery steps, and long-term expectations.
  5. Describe recovery and rehabilitation stages to counsel and consult patients.
  6. Determine the strategies to share with patients to optimally prevent or delay arthritic changes.

An Intensive Training Lab on Total Joint Replacements

OUTLINE

Determinants for Joint Replacement

Pre-operative Selection Determinants

Surgical Procedures with Video Presentations

Acute Post-op Recovery Interventions

Treatment Sessions for the Acute through the Subacute Recovery Phase

Out-patient and Beyond: Strategies for Optimal Function and Joint Longevity

OBJECTIVES

  1. Participate in hands-on application of acute and sub-acute intervention strategies for the total shoulder, hip, and knee patient.
  2. Evaluate the key indications for timing of joint replacement surgery, including post-op recovery considerations.
  3. Practice application of cold therapies, UE immobilizers, and point-of-care PT/INR.
  4. Evaluate post-operative pain, wound care, and anticoagulant options.
  5. Compare surgical approaches and procedures through video presentations to determine appropriate post-op restrictions.
  6. Explain the indications to reverse a TSA.
  7. Distinguish between the various surgical approaches currently available for THA.
  8. Differentiate between traditional surgical approaches and the subvastus approach for TKA.
  9. Analyze the advantages of computerized and robotic assisted replacement surgeries.
  10. Practice hands-on application of advanced out-patient intervention strategies for the total shoulder, hip, and knee patient.
