DVD - Also available: Digital Seminar


Over the next 15 years, joint replacements are projected to grow by as much as 673%, and as 60 becomes the new 40, more patients than ever are entering into these surgeries expecting full return to function and many active years to come. This seminar explores cutting edge interventions for maximizing high–level functional gains and returning patients to the daily activities that are important to them.

Watch Terry Trundle as he relates over 38 years of practical, evidence–based interventions he has used with this exact population. Explore the risks and benefits of today's surgical procedures with an emphasis on newer, less invasive options such as hemiarthroplasty and reverse prosthesis, and discover how pre– and post–op rehab is evolving to keep pace. Take home the tools today that you need for tomorrow, such as:

  • Practical exercises patients can do early and at home
  • Techniques for joint replacement rehab (CPM, manual therapy, exercise dosing, and adjunct therapies)
  • A roadmap for what the future holds for joint arthroplasty procedures
