1. Basic Anatomy and Physiology of the Stabilizing Muscles of the Knee
We will cover the anatomy and function of the primary muscle groups relevant to dynamic stability of the knee. Three overviews will be covered: factors that affect stability in the knee, flexor and extensor muscle groups, and muscles that affect stability in the knee.
2. Etiology & Functional Implications of Common Muscle Impairments Related to Common Knee Disorders
This chapter will cover the etiology of muscle impairments, along with the implication of these impairments on the function of the lower extremity. Dr. Rhon will explain how muscle function changes depending on whether the leg is in an open chain versus closed chain position
3. Assessment of Muscle Impairments Related to Knee Disorders
In the final chapter of this course we will cover the assessment of motor control, muscle length, and dynamic function of the lower extremity. Open chain assessments of the muscle, closed chain assessments of the muscle, and functional assessment of the lower extremity will be discussed.
