This essential level webinar reviews the latest evidence in lower quarter injury prevalence, risk, and management, and gives the clinician the tools necessary for immediate intervention. Clinicians will use case study application(s) via a biopsychosocial and integrated evaluative paradigm that combines physical therapy and yoga (medical therapeutic yoga) for achieving greater overall systemic effects during strength, conditioning, and rehabilitation of the lower quarter.
New research for lower quarter injury prevention and management will be reviewed, including:
- Hip labral injury differential diagnosis, including discussion of surgical techniques
- Iliotiibial band and patellofemoral syndrome
The biopsychosocial model assists in designing programs for both pathophysiology and prevention based and is supported by the World Health Organization and validated in numerous studies. The course the latest evidence-base and evolves clinical care for a more thorough, holistic approach.
At the end of this course, the participant will be able to:
- Describe how the biopsychosocial model can improve orthopaedic management of ITBS and PFPS.
- List evidence based methodology for incorporating medical yoga into current knee rehabilitation programs.
- Identify five points for diagnosis and intervention in evidence based integrated rehabilitation of ITBS and PFPS.
- Describe four critical factors for implementation of a BPS model of treatment for iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS) and patellofemoral (PF) considerations.
- List three postures to facilitate acute and subacute ITBS healing.
- Analyze postures and breath techniques in a case study format.
- Identify 2 categories for hip differential diagnosis and 5 evidence based risk factors for intra-articular hip labral injury in order to understand how intra-articular hip joint injury could be avoided.
- Describe the morphological classification system of labral tears in order to identify the most accepted provocative tests used in identification of intra-articular hip joint injury
- Discuss current evidence based medical management, including surgical intervention, for labral tears and related secondary injuries of the hip.
- In a case study format, critically analyze indications and contraindications to follow a subacute through chronic phase functional intervention for hip joint preservation and rehabilitation in a multi-disciplinary team approach.
