The number of joint replacement procedures performed continues to rapidly increase along with the use of advanced surgical techniques including robotics and computer assisted surgery (CAS). These advances impact far more than the operating room. As a rehab clinician, are you ready to provide CURRENT and PROGRESSIVE rehabilitation for this population? Discover how to help your patient make the most of their “new and bionic” prosthesis to get down on the floor and play with the grandkids, ski, hike and more. Take your patients beyond meeting ROM goals by providing total care to maximize the ability to remain active.

Get the answers and techniques needed to assist the 15-20% of arthroplasty patients that struggle to achieve treatment goals. You will discover solutions such as how best to address:

  • Total shoulder patients who shrug/hike with overhead ROM
  • What activities your joint replacement patients can participate in and WHEN
  • Intra-active functional rehabilitation methods to address stiff or weak total shoulder, hip or knee replacements
  • Understand current technology and confidently communicate with patients/family members

Additionally, the latest information on PRP, stem cells, viscosupplementation and other non-operative treatments for osteoarthritis will be covered to complete this must attend training you don’t want to miss!
