Advanced Evidence Based Examination and Management of Shoulder, Hip and Knee Joint Replacements


Presented by Michael Masaracchio, PT, PhD, DPT, OCS, SCS, FAAOMPT 


This course will present a pertinent review of clinical anatomy and biomechanics of the shoulder, hip, and knee. The main purpose will be to discuss the evidence-based features of the examination and management of individuals with shoulder, hip, and knee joint replacements, with emphasis on outcome measures and effective measurable interventions  within a clinical reasoning framework.  This course will use a combination of lecture, panel discussion, and demonstration of therapeutic exercises and manual therapy to facilitate learning and exchange of ideas, with an emphasis on clinical decision making in the acute and post acute care  rehabilitation settings. 


At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to:


1. Describe the relevant clinical anatomy of the shoulder, hip and knee joint.


2. Discuss the relevant biomechanics in open and closed kinetic chain of the shoulder, hip, and knee joint.


3. Explain how abnormal anatomy and biomechanics can lead to clinical pathology.


4. Develop independence in the examination of individuals following joint arthroplasty surgery.


5. Develop independence in recognizing complications following total joint arthroplasty.
