Here's what you'll learn in this comprehensive online course:
SESSION 1:
Therapeutic Strategies for Degenerative Joint Disease: Overcoming Pain and Improving Function
with Shane Malecha, PT, DPT, MS, CSCS
  • Diagnostic Techniques & Clinical Clues for the Evaluation of DJD
  • Options and Strategies to Prevent or Delay Arthritic Changes
  • Rehabilitation and Recovery Techniques to Return Adult Patients to Active Lifestyles
  • Case Studies and Practice Labs

For many adults, an active lifestyle is simply a way of life. The process of degenerative joint disease, or arthritis, often stops them in their tracks. Getting patients back into action, while curbing patient re-admission and managing Medicare's multiple procedure payment reduction and therapy cap are challenges you face every day. Attend this seminar and gain valuable tips and strategies to address these challenges.

Join Shane Malecha, PT, DPT, MS, CSCS, and learn the concepts of Degenerative Joint Disease in a way that makes a confusing and often overwhelming topic fun, understandable and applicable to the next patient interaction. Case studies and mock patient presentations not only make the seminar fun and entertaining, they also put the concepts into action, allowing you to create a thought pattern to apply when a patient is in your office. Shane will take you through the assessment process, detailing the key steps of the pathology, evaluation techniques and concepts, specifically including skills to evaluate and treat the degenerative joint.

You will learn the non-operative and surgical interventions currently being used to treat DJD patients, as well as the latest rehabilitation protocols that will take the individual to active once again.
SESSION 2:
An Intensive Training Lab on Total Joint Replacement
with Terry L. Rzepkowski, DPT
  • "Hands-on" treatment sessions for the acute through the subacute phase of recovery
  • Video case studies of the latest in computer and robotic surgery techniques
  • Unique rehab considerations for the traditional and advanced surgical approaches
  • Key strategies to incorporate point-of-care PT/INR
  • Out-patient and beyond: Practical strategies for optimal function and joint longevity

Recent advances in the techniques, equipment, and components now make total joint replacement a commonplace, elective surgery for patients of all ages with compromised articular joint components. This challenges us to keep pace with surgical advances and the active expectations of their recipients.

Terry Rzepkowski, DPT, is excited to share his expertise and passion in orthopedics as a total joint rehabilitation specialist to provide an advanced understanding of total joint replacement surgery. Have you ever wanted to see the latest techniques in joint replacement… but your busy treatment schedule doesn't allow you time? In this course, we will view together and discuss actual joint replacement videos to be able to discriminate between traditional options and all the very latest procedures for the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee and ankle.

We will also have "hands on" demonstrations and practice of intervention applications from the acute post-op through the advanced out-patient progression for the total joint replacement patient. You will leave with a greater understanding of the surgical process, be better equipped to help patients establish realistic expectations, have increased confidence in this ever-changing field and achieve improved patient reports of satisfaction following surgical interventions for Total Joint Replacement.
