This course will examine osteoarthritis, the signs and symptoms of the osteoarthritic knee and the degenerate meniscus, as well as discussing the long-term effects of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. It will look at intervention strategies that you can use and will demonstrate the effectiveness of these strategies from evidence in the literature. It will provide simple strategies for patient self-management to help improve function and quality of life for the older knee, minimise painful recurrences and avoid surgery where possible.
This course includes theoretical and practical components, and explores recent studies in order to give a greater insight into treating the older knee. You will also gain pain management strategies for post-knee arthroplasties to assist rehabilitation.
