Understand range of motion goals in late rehabilitation after TSA. 10. Analyze rehabilitation techniques in late rehabilitation after TSA. 11. Evaluate the reasons for poor progress in late rehabilitation following TSA. 12. Analyze the possible return to sports after TSA. 13. Evaluate 4 common movement dysfunctions after TSA. 14. Understand the role of 4 different muscles in depressing the humeral head. 15. Analyze the Nirshl tendinosis pain scale. 16. Evaluate the surgical incision in an extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB) release. 17. Understand 4 exercises in early rehabilitation after an ECRB release. 18. Analyze a home exercise program after ECRB release. 19. Analyze a progressive strengthening program after ECRB release. 20. Evaluate grip strength after ECRB release. 21. Understand the arthrokinematics of the humeroulnar joint. 22. Analyze the arthrokinematics of valgus stress to the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL). 23. Understand the mechanical advantage of 4 different elbow flexors. 24. Evaluate medial elbow instability in 4 different patient populations. 25.

These courses are offered in cooperation with Elsevier Health and utilize the hardback textbook, “Rehabilitation for the Postsurgical Orthopedic Patient, 3rd Edition", c2013 by Lisa Maxey & Jim Magnusson. Replacing 2 of our most popular courses from the 2nd Edition, this new edition provides current, evidence-based guidelines to designing effective rehabilitation strategies. Coverage of each condition includes an overview of the orthopedic patient’s entire course of treatment from pre- to post-surgery. For each phase of rehabilitation, this book describes the postoperative timeline, the goals, potential complications and precautions, and appropriate therapeutic procedures.
These courses are essential to both inpatient and outpatient physical and occupational therapists, physical and occupational therapy assistants and athletic trainers who deal with postsurgical orthopedic cases!
