Over the last few years, the care and management of knee injuries and conditions has significantly evolved. An increasing appreciation of post-surgical outcomes, implications of rehabilitation in specific tissue involvement or pathology, and management realities has fueled advancements in the management of knee rehabilitation. Join Dr. Terry Malone as he utilizes insightful lectures, demonstrations, and specific case studies to introduce new and emerging treatment regimens for the knee. With a focus on ACL injuries and the meniscus, this course will provide in-depth coverage of updated knee rehabilitation approaches, enabling the participant to thoroughly engage with these new and upcoming concepts.

Participants will be provided with the newest data for anatomic reconstructions in young patients, and will learn the significance of allografts, and double and single bundle reconstructions.
Chapter three emphasizes the role of the meniscus for normal knee control and overall stability. Join Dr. Terry Malone as he utilizes a case study patient to exemplify the process of gathering patient history, and determining effective intervention strategies through observation for patients with injuries to the cruciate ligaments.
How do you determine the timeline for return to play after an ACL injury? In this segment, Dr. Terry Malone discusses the realities of ACL surgery including the causes of failed reconstructions, the biological timelines of healing, and the ideal parameters for return to play.
In this chapter, Dr. Terry Malone will take participants through an in-depth patient case demonstration that will address the proper methods for assessment, ACL injuries.
