About the Course:
Using current research, this course provides insights into efficient and effective non-operative rehabilitation of the most common acute and chronic ankle/foot injuries. Additionally, it presents up-to-date information regarding post-operative rehabilitation following fracture stabilization, ligament reconstruction, tendon repair, and joint procedures of the ankle/foot. From adolescents to the elderly, and athletes to desk jockeys, this seminar will help practitioners choose appropriate therapeutic interventions based on patient presentation and patient goals. Video clips throughout the presentation hone participant implementation of key skills and enable immediate integration into clinical practice.

Course Objectives:
  1. Select common ankle/foot pathologies seen in outpatient rehabilitation.
  2. Identify key history and examination findings for ankle/foot pathologies.
  3. Recognize a comprehensive, evidence-based rehabilitation program for patients with ankle/foot pathologies.
  4. Select expected outcomes for patients with ankle/foot pathologies
