Upon successful completion of this seminar, the practitioner will learn how to:
Understand the anatomy and biomechanics of the knee joint.

- ACL surgery - ACL MAD procedure, ALL procedures of the knee - Patellofemoral pain & post-operative rehabilitation - Tendinopathies - Post-operative articular cartilage procedures - Knee stiffness & loss of motion - Meniscus lesions - Specific techniques to improve healing & promote muscle hypertrophy
Analyze specific exercise techniques, such as weight bearing & non weight bearing exercises and understand joint kinematics and muscular activity & then be able to develop the treatment plan for the appropriate exercises for the specific patient.
Integrate the information presented in this course and demonstrate problem-solving skills through the development of treatment plans of specific case studies presented.
