The World Organization dubbed this years 2000-2010 the “Bone and Joint Decade”. By 2020, joint arthroplasty rates are expected to double. This rise in the demand for joint replacement surgery has led to major advancements in the surgical techniques and technologies. These developments allow patients to return to an active lifestyle, where before they were very much limited. The question for clinicians is: are we ready to provide current and progressive rehabilitation for the rising joint replacement population? Today’s “Baby Boomer” joint replacement patient places much higher expectations on their rehab provider They want to get down on the floor with the grandkids, ski, and hike.
This highly interactive seminar will provide the attendee the evidenced-based knowledge to answer those often on-the-spot questions our patients ask, such as “What should I not do?” or “When can I hike or plat tennis again?” Also examined will be surgery from traditional to cutting edge, in addition to evidenced-based rehab and return to activity guidelines. This one of a kind seminar is a MUST for all clinicians who work with total joint patients.
