Hip and Knee: Complex Understanding for Simple Solutions
April 21-22, 2018
Elite Motion Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine
Pasadena, CA (Los Angeles Area)
Approved for 1.2 CEUs by California Physical Therapy Association: #16-324
Presenter: Erik Meira
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.

The Science of Running Medicine
October 27-28, 2018
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

The Science of Running Medicine brings together three of the leading clinical researchers involving running mechanics and injury. With a combined 75+ years of clinical practice and 350+ publications, the faculty is committed to providing health care professionals and the running community with evidenced-based strategies to advance running injury management.

The Science of Running Medicine recognizes that not all runners are created equal, and neither are the injury prevention and recovery methods. By combining science and practice, successful approaches can be individualized for you, your patients and your clients.
