Pre- and Post-Rehab Solutions for Knee Replacements and ACL Reconstruction
Knee surgeries are commonplace for young, older, active and deconditioned populations. The numbers are exploding and candidates need help prior to and after surgery. In this course you review the knee anatomy and biomechanics as they relate to the context of common knee surgeries. You explore total knee replacement—what it is, when it is recommended, and what to expect in recovery. You will also learn about anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction—mechanisms of knee ligament injury, what surgery involves and expected outcomes. You leave equipped with exercises for the pre-hab and post-rehab stages, as well as simple movement techniques for knee injury prevention.
