Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Rehabilitation and Repair – 5 Hours

$40.00

Description

ACL tears are a common type of injury that occurs in athletes and recreational enthusiasts while playing sports and engaging in leisure activities. In the United States, around 200,000 ACL injuries are diagnosed every year, with women being more likely to suffer from an ACL tear than men. It is crucial for female athletes to prioritize injury prevention. ACL tears often limit an athlete’s ability to return to their sport, making it essential for physical therapists to have a comprehensive understanding of the injury’s mechanism, surgical techniques, and rehabilitation process. This course will equip physical therapists with the knowledge they need to provide the best possible care to their patients with an ACL injury, from the initial injury to the post-surgery rehabilitation process, and offer strategies for preventing ACL injuries.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to learn: 

  • Describe the anatomy associated with an ACL tear/injury and surgical repair/rehabilitation.
  • Describe ACL injury prevention interventions and strategies.
  • Describe the ways an ACL injury can occur.
  • Describe the differential diagnosis of an ACL tear/injury.
  • Describe pre-operative ACL rehabilitation and non-operative treatment of ACL tears.
  • Describe surgical repair of an ACL tear.
  • Develop a post-operative rehabilitative protocol following an ACL repair based on research including return to sport criteria and testing.
  • Define ACL loading that occurs during non-weight-bearing and weight-bearing exercises that are performed during typical post-operative rehabilitation.
  • Describe the use of PRP and mesenchymal stem cells for ACL injury treatment.
  • Describe the importance of restoring knee range of motion and bi-articular muscle extensibility.
