ACL Repair: From Physical Therapy to an Active Lifestyle
One of the most feared recreational and work injuries is a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Although they are often associated with sports injury, they also occur during falls, vehicle collisions and non-contact activities.
Each year, there are between 250,000-300,000 ACL injuries, costing the healthcare system more than $1 billion. Even more challenging, the recovery period is often 6 to 9 months.
In this dynamic webinar, post-rehabilitation expert Chris Gellert, PT, will review the functional anatomy of the knee, the causes of ACL injuries, and the management of the injury as a client progresses from medical intervention to physical therapy to post-rehab specialists.
With the goal of building ongoing strength and stability, attendees will learn how to safely and confidently design a program for a client who has had an ACL injury/surgery. The seminar provides foundational science information, assessments and practical applications.
