Knee injuries, whether it be an ACL injury, meniscal injury, or degenerative arthritis, are common in the American population. This course takes a closer look at the detailed anatomy of the knee from an anatomist viewpoint and the biomechanical forces affecting the knee with certain activities. Review of the physiological healing process and its effect of knee injury recovery will be emphasized. Combined with recent best evidence supported research and physical therapy including non-surgical approaches, rehabilitation exercises and treatment options will be discussed. Considerations of proper techniques of exercise will be addressed. (Intermediate Level)
Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
1. Identify a possible etiology of injury for at least 5 anatomic structures of the knee joint.
2. For each of the anatomic structures of the knee (ligament, meniscus, muscle and tendon), identify the various healing processes, time frames, & precautions to consider.
3. For either squatting, jumping, or climbing, describe how joint loading and various forces influence the mechanics of the knee.
4. For any 2 potential injuries to the knee, integrate at least 3 rehabilitation techniques based on current evidence, to effectively rehabilitate the given structure.
