Take best practice and combine it with the topic of total joint arthroplasty and you will get the essential message of this course. How can we, as clinicians, practice in this rapidly changing environment and give great substantiated care? This course will give clinicians functional assessment tools and treatment programs to apply in their current clinical environments. Critical pathways (i.e. care plans), therapeutic treatment techniques, and rehabilitation protocols will be presented for total hip, knee and shoulder arthroplasty. Pre-operative, acute care, and post-discharge concerns will be addressed and examples of a precise therapeutic exercise program within each setting will be presented. Suggested protocols, sample home exercise instruction sheets, and home exercise programs along with evaluation and treatment guidelines will be given, thus providing therapists with information to improve their clinical practice related to joint arthroplasty.
