Fall Conference: Hip and Knee: Complex Understanding for Simple Solutions is organized by American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) of Montana and will be held from Oct 03 - 04, 2020 at Missoula, Montana, United States of America. Accreditation: This Course has been approved for a maximum of 14 Contact Hours Course Description: The hip and knee are a complex pairing comprising the structural and functional core of many human movements, from ADL to sport. Rehab professionals such as physical therapists and athletic trainers are in a unique position to evaluate, treat, and oversee the recovery of patients with hip and knee injuries. They also often find themselves in the position to assist with developing injury reduction programs for active populations. Having a deeper understanding of what is known and not known can help professionals develop the most effective programs to address these issues. This two-day course will include lecture and lab demonstration to explore the complexity of the hip and the knee. Topics including femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), acetabular labral and chondral injuries, gluteal/psoas/patellar tendinopathies, ligamentous injuries, meniscal tears, and patellofemoral pain (PFP) will be discussed. There will also be extensive exploration of postoperative management and return to play strategies for common procedures such as anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR), femoroplasty, and labral and meniscal repairs. This complex content will be presented in a way that is simple to understand and even simpler to implement by focusing on key concepts in a hierarchical format. Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to: • Use a funnel analogy to simplify the complexities of evidence-based practice • Describe the current understanding of the mechanisms of injury in non-arthritic intra-articular hip pathologies • Perform a simple screen for hip patients that would benefit from early surgical consult and for athletes that may be at higher risk for knee injury or second injury • Explain how to manipulate biomechanics to alter symptom presentation in lower extremity dysfunction • Summarize the most effective programs for reducing the risk for lower extremity injuries • Prioritize primary goals of postoperative rehabilitation to maximize return to sport function • Develop a targeted and streamlined exercise progression for maximal benefit • Give a basic description of dynamical systems and how that applies to rehabilitation
