Description

Are you ready to face the mounting number of "baby boomers" who want to return to an active lifestyle after joint replacement surgery? Advanced surgical techniques, shorter hospital stays, minimal inpatient rehab, and lessening home health visits make efficiently treating this emerging population a necessity for all therapists and rehab professionals. Help your patients get back to life with speaker Jason Handschumacher, DPT, as he relates 16 years of practical, evidence-based interventions he uses with this exact population every day. He will give the tools today that you need for tomorrow, such as:

  • practical exercises patients should do early and at home
  • applying exercise and tissue healing science in your everyday practice
  • techniques for joint replacement rehab (CPM, NMES, manual therapy, “prehabilitation,” exercise dosing)
  • accessing and understanding the latest research to defend your practice and improve reimbursement
  • a roadmap for what the future holds for joint replacement rehab
