Join Chad M. Thompson, PT, DPT, OCS, CEAS, to elevate your treatment of total joint patients into the here and now. Recent advances in total joint techniques and components, along with the advances in pre-care, anesthesia, pain control, and pharmacological regimens, are allowing for clients to now consider treatment options through surgical centers and out-patient surgery sites. The high-tech development of 3D custom joint fabrication, in conjunction with 3D motion analysis of gait, both pre- and post-operatively, allow the patient to receive the most state-of-the-art care available. Total joint patients now have the option of customized prosthetic components, which fit more precisely with less tissue trauma.
You will learn how to evaluate real-time evidence to determine whether current interventions are contributing to the most successful outcomes for the client. Based upon this evidence, we will discuss how to select targeted exercises that will achieve cost effective, functional goals. During this inspiring day, you will have an opportunity to see how 3D gait and motion analysis can match your client’s needs for a truly customized program. Discussion of the most recent literature findings will be incorporated as well, explaining such things as how convalescence is understood to be a year-long process, due to bone to metal interfaces demonstrating higher tensile stresses than bone to bone. Let us bring the future of total joint rehabilitation forward… as you discover the exciting new opportunities within your role, update your prescription methodology and determine ways to anticipate the evolving needs of your total joint client.
