It’s no secret - people are harder on their knees than they have ever been. From young athletes to weekend warriors to active seniors, knee injuries are a common occurrence. Knee injury patients across the nation are turning to physical therapists, athletic trainers and strength and conditioning professionals to improve their function and help them rehab from surgical procedures. Ryan August, PT, DPT, MTC, CMP, CSCS, focuses on knee injury and management, and will provide you with renewed confidence in applying current research in science and exercise to active patients with knee pathologies.
Ryan will teach you strategies to select the appropriate exercise at the appropriate stage of healing for the patient following an ACL reconstruction. Evidence regarding stress placed on the ACL with specific exercises, healing times and graft selection implication will all be covered in depth. Learn the most recent biomechanical and pathophysiological theories and treatment approaches for sufferers of patella femoral pain and patellar tendinopathies.
Advances in meniscal and cartilage care will be covered, as well as the long-term potential progressions to OA and post-operative care for the Total Knee Replacement patient. Ryan will teach you strategies to help guide return to activity or sport, limit injury and re-injury and measuring and proving successful outcomes. The highlight of the course will be breaks intermixed into the lecture to stop and practice manual techniques, exercises and taping selections for the patients with knee pathologies.
