1. Knee Stability Impairments
In the first chapter of this course, Dr. Eric Robertson addresses stability of the knee. Participants begin by reviewing applied anatomy as it relates to the stability mechanisms of the knee. Dr. Robertson identifies key examination procedures related to knee stability and provides evidence for management techniques of patients with stability impairments. Participants will learn to extrapolate findings from a physical examination of the lower quarter and knee to select appropriate interventions.
2. Knee Osteoarthritis
In Chapter 2, Dr. Robertson reviews risk factors and pathogenesis of osteoarthritis of the knee. Participants will learn to apply evidence for management of patients with knee osteoarthritis and extrapolate findings from a physical examination of the lower quarter and knee to select appropriate interventions. A case study is used to evaluate several hypotheses as part of a differential diagnostic process for patients with knee impairments.
