Terry Malone addresses the multiplicity of problems confronting the clinician dealing with rehabilitation of the knee. In this course, he presents rehabilitation concepts related to patellofemoral dysfunction. Patients with these pathologies demand an "attention to detail" which is frequently not provided. Upon completion the learner will be able to describe the function of the quadriceps in relation to the patellofemoral joint, recommend the proper examination procedures for Jumper's knee, contrast the meaning of open and closed chain exercise sequences and appropriately outline their use related to PF forces. You will learn how to place patients into the various categories of rehabilitation intervention for patellofemoral conditions, and prescribe exercises based on that categorization. This course is designed to allow a rich appreciation for the management of selected knee conditions.
