Course Goals: This course is intended to instruct the professional through a self-paced study on the concepts of postsurgical management.
At the end of this course the professional will be able to:
*Identify cardinal signs of inflammation and their physiologic causes.
*Differentiate between time frames for healing of cartilage, ligament, tendon, bone, muscle, and epithelial tissue
*Be able to differentiate between the rules governing joint arthrokinematics including convex-concave rules.
*Differentiate between selected joint mobilization techniques of the knee and shoulder.
*Differentiate between milking and patellar ballottement tests of the knee.
*Identify circumfrential location and clinical rationale used to assess joint swelling and effusion of the knee.
*Identify the J sign.
*Differentiate between special tests of the knee including cruciate ligament testing, collateral ligament testing and meniscus testing.
*Identify the purpose of the KT-1000 Arthrometer testing instrument.
*Define step-off deformity.
*Identify and differentiate between the four patterns of the scapular dyskinesis system used to describe abnormal scapular motion.
*Identify and differentiate between the average shoulder ranges of motion for flexion, extension, abduction, medial and lateral rotation.
*Define the painful arc syndrome.
*Identify the Cyriax Pain Resistance Sequence.
*Differentiate between special tests of the shoulder including capsular stability, seated labral testing, acromioclavicular joint testing, impingement tests, rotator cuff tear testing, thoracic outlet testing, supine instability tests and supine labral tests.
*Identify myotomes associated with manual muscle test for shoulder, elbow, forearm, wrist and hand.
*Differentiate between muscle fiber type characteristics for slow twitch, fast twitch A and fast twitch B fibers.
*List and differentiate between open and closed kinetic chain characteristics.
*List advantages and disadvantages for the use of isokinetic training.
*Define VO2 max.
*Identify different training characteristics of strength, power, strength-endurance and endurance.
*Differentiate between muscle and joint receptors and identify joint receptors in the tissues of the knee.
*Differentiate between TTDPM and TTDPMD.
*Identify 3 sources of sensory information in maintaining postural stability.
*List 4 mechanical receptors, their location, sensitivity and activation threshold, and response to stimuli.
*Differentiate between the peak torque/body weight ratios for scapulothoracic protraction and retraction.

This text focuses specifically on post-surgical guidelines for successful rehabilitation of the knee and shoulder for sports patients. Content covers basic concepts related to soft tissue healing, as well as core concepts in sports medicine rehabilitation, all of which lay the groundwork for discussions of specific protocols. Detailed descriptions of the latest post-surgical procedures for various knee and shoulder pathologies equip clinicians with essential knowledge needed to recommend the most effective treatment plans.
This 714 page book with 650 illustrations has been broken down by chapters into 6 modules (check your state's approval status in the state specific course catalog for your profession).
