Registration Fee:   $115


Objectives
1. Discuss applied anatomy of the tibiofemoral, patellofemoral, and superior tibiofibular joints. 2. Explain the forces on the knee with walking, climbing stairs, descending stairs and squatting. 3. Identify 17 mechanisms of injury to the knee and possible structures injured. 4. Identify 9 categories of malalignment about the knee and possible correlated and compensatory motions or postures. 5. Demonstrate knowledge of the normal development of the knee from birth to adulthood. 6. Identify the normal and pathological positions of the patella and tibia. 7. Discuss range of motion necessary at the knee to perform selected daily activities. 8. Identify 13 muscles of the knee: their actions, innervation, and nerve root derivation. 9. Identify 13 functional assessment tests specifically designed for athletes, post-op outcomes, and/or specific conditions. 10. Identify 33 tests for ligamentous instability around the knee, type of instability and structures injured to some degree if test is positive. 11. Discuss the validity and accuracy of ligamentous testing devices. 12. Identify 5 tests to assess for knee swelling. 13. Identify 18 tests for patellofemoral dysfunction. 14. Identify involved nerves and nerve root levels in a peripheral nerve injury about the knee by assessing the affected muscles, reflexes and sensory alterations. 15. Identify structures and possible pathology that can be palpated externally with the knee extended and flexed. 16. Review 5 types of diagnostic imaging and rationale for its use.

Target Audience
