This course is derived from the textbook by Robert Manske “Postsurgical Orthopedic Sports Rehabilitation Knee & Shoulder” ©2006. The 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 professionals with essential knowledge needed to recommend the most effective treatment plans.
Module 6: AC Joint Injuries/Rotator Cuff Repair covers chapters 7, 26, 32 through 34.
Chapter 7: Neuromuscular Static and Dynamic Stability of the Shoulder: The Key to Functional Performance
Chapter 26: Rehabilitation after Conservative and Operative Treatment of Acromioclavicular Joint Injuries
Chapter 32: Subacromial Impingement, Acromioplasty, and Subacromial Decompression
Chapter 33: Rehabilitation after Mini-Open and Arthroscopic Repair of the Rotator Cuff
Chapter 34: Rehabilitation after Surgical Treatment of the Long-Head Biceps Tendon
