Foundation Exercises for the Treatment of the Knee

 

George J. Davies, DPT, MEd, PT, SCS, ATC, LAT, CSCS, FAPTA, PES provides evidence based therapeutic exercises guidelines for developing rehabilitation programs for patients with various knee pathologies. Foundational exercises are described first to work each link in the kinematic chain in an isolated manner to build the “foundation” to progress to the advanced functional specificity exercises. After a solid foundation is established by working each link in the kinematic chain (muscle groups in the knee complex); then examples of advanced exercises are illustrated to be incorporated with different patients at selected times in their rehabilitation programs. Selected manual therapy techniques are also demonstrated that can be used with patients’ who have selective hypomobilities.

Vestibular Rehabilitation - A Comprehensive Clinical Approach for Positive Functional Outcomes

 

The information presented in this course, while vestibular in nature, is combined with a comprehensive, interactive laboratory component. Its focus is on the class participants' "Monday Morning" issues. The structure and function of the vestibular system are thoroughly discussed along with testing, diagnostics and intervention strategies to address a large scope of symptoms and diagnoses. When therapists return to their jobs on Monday morning, they will likely encounter patients with problems related to upright instability. Although these patients may not be diagnosed with vestibular disorders, they are indeed equipped with vestibular systems. Without basic knowledge of vestibular structure and function, therapists will likely miss a crucial element of the initial evaluation--one that could very well lead to more successful intervention outcomes.
