Accreditation Check:
Dr. Eric Hegedus presents this comprehensive course on evidence-based interventions for the knee. Users will recognize the more prevalent knee pathologies seen in musculoskeletal practice and understand the proposed benefit to classifying knee conditions by similarity. The concordant techniques used to target the primary impairment are explained, as well as the adjunctive techniques used to target the primary impairment and secondary contributors, and the techniques used to target global conditional issues. Analyze the effectiveness of each technique for treatment within the classifications. Current research is presented throughout the course to provide learners with the proper tools for evidence-based management of these patients. This course is part of a 19 course comprehensive clinical series covering examination and intervention for the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, as well as the upper (shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand) and lower (hip, pelvis, knee, foot, and ankle) quarters.

Chapters & Learning Objectives

1. Common Pathologies

Recognize the most common knee/thigh pathologies seen in musculoskeletal practice. Understand the etiology behind each of the pathologies.

2. Treatment Classifications

Recognize the proposed benefit to classifying knee disorders and treatments by similarity. Understand that classifications do not need to be mutually exclusive.

3. Local Interventions

Describe evidence behind concordant based interventions targeted to the primary impairment. Demonstrate knee/thigh oriented movement based techniques. Demonstrate knee/thigh specific stretching and strengthening techniques.

4. Regional Interventions

Outline and demonstrate the adjunctive techniques used to target the secondary or regional contributors to the primary impairment. Understand that injuries to the knee and thigh particularly demand a regional approach.

5. Global Interventions

Review and apply techniques used to target global issues. Understand the need for addressing the human as a whole and not an injury.
