Description: Total joint arthroplasty is the most common surgical procedure performed in the U.S. and will continue to climb rapidly. However, as surgical advances and prosthetic implants improve rapidly, the therapeutic process and protocols used with this population have remained stagnant. In an attempt to improve outcomes while reducing length of stay and therapy visits, clinicians have over utilized rigid protocols while neglecting proprioception and function yielding a reduction in long term outcomes. Today’s clinician must possess a stronger understanding of the techniques used by surgeons, the prosthetics commonly (and uncommonly) used, and evidence-based treatment strategies determined not just by their referring surgeon but by current research. This course investigates the latest surgical and minimally invasive techniques used and the benefits and risks associated with these techniques. Taking hundreds of nationally established joint protocols, presenter Trent Brown summarizes the most effective and functionally relevant treatment strategies and protocols. Numerous labs will occur to ensure application of material and immediate carry-over to the clinical setting. Mr. Brown will also discuss documentation techniques and examples to strongly justify the need for skilled services with this population in hospital, in-patient, acute, home health, and outpatient settings. Objectives: • Identify the diagnostic, demographic, and lifestyle explanations related to an increase in joint arthroplasty and the increased need for therapy services following arthroplasty • Identify and apply current evidence behind tissue healing science and how it affects the total joint client • Identify the evidence justifying therapy following total joint arthroplasty and the long and short-term benefits of therapy • Identify the difference between standard and reverse total arthroplasty components and techniques and how it impacts rehabilitation • Demonstrate evidence based hip therapeutic strategies used for recovery of the most commonly used hip surgical techniques • Identify the difference between the various surgical components and techniques used for knee arthroplasty and the impact of treatment • Demonstrate the best treatment strategies for patients seen in any therapeutic setting following practice of techniques in lab Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
