Therapeutic Strategies for Degenerative Joint Disease: Overcoming Pain and Improving Function is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Mar 25, 2019 at Holiday Inn Roanoke - Valley View, Roanoke, Virginia, United States of America.

Target Audience : • Physical Therapists • Occupational Therapists • Nurses • Nurse Practitioners • Clinical Nurse Specialists • Orthopedic Nurses • Physician Assistants • Occupational Therapy Assistants • Physical Therapist Assistants • Athletic Trainers • Exercise Physiologists • Personal Trainers Course Description: What is the one thing you hear from every client whose life you touch? The desire to remain independent and enjoy a qualifying life with family and friends. We see our clients working longer, with industry seeking our assistance to manage an aging workforce. We see children experiencing sports related arthritic changes in their teen years, based on MRI results. Our lifestyles have changed – with more convenience foods, a lack of exercise and sedentary work environments. The result is earlier degenerative joint changes, disability, and pain. However, evidence shows no predictive factors based on diagnostic test results to distinguish the severity of degenerative joint conditions as they link to quality of life or function. Grant me your time and learn the keys to effectively managing these clients through targeted exercise intervention, weight management, and aerobic capacity. Important information will be highlighted through case studies, demonstrations, mock patient presentations, and analysis of the latest coming from research studies that should guide your treatment decision. I will take you through the assessment process, detailing the key steps of the pathological changes, and evaluation techniques and concepts, specifically including skills to evaluate and treat the degenerative joint. We will delve into both non-operative and surgical interventions currently used to treat DJD patients, as well as the latest rehabilitation protocols so that you can return your own clients to active once again! Objectives: • Summarize the commonly-experienced condition of degenerative joint disease. • Explain focused history taking techniques and examination methods to create diagnostic skills for evaluation of upper and lower extremity degenerative joints. • Analyze the decision-making processes regarding conservative and surgical treatment options for patients with degenerative joints. • Evaluate the methods most effective to educate patients regarding: the arthritic process, treatment options, recovery steps, and long-term expectations. • Compare the recovery and rehabilitation stages to best counsel patients. • Design a treatment program for acute as well as outpatient clients. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
