ABOUT THE EVENT:
We are excited to announce that Dr. Ferdinand Chan, MD, along with Tim Tyler, MS, PT, ATC, Physical Therapist and Clinical Director of Professional PT - Scarsdale II, will be lecturing to the staff of Professional Physical Therapy.
This course reviews practical information and tips for clinicians who treat anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction patients. The presentations highlight decision-making skills and solutions to common challenging problems. Understanding the mechanisms of injury and prevention of an ACL injury in the athlete is a challenge. Once injured it requires a team that can decipher the mechanism of injury, develop pre-rehabilitation, select a specific type of surgical procedure related to the particular athlete, and create a post-operative program that is reflective of gender and level of participation.
- Educate how ACL injury and re-injury in the athlete is significantly high and increases with level of participation and types of sport participation.
- Discuss ACL injury biomechanics and how there are specific mechanisms of injury in this age groups that are biomechanically and neuromusculary different.
- Describe surgical options that are very specific and vary with respect to gender, age, type of sport participation, and long-term goal.
- Discuss and address concomitant pathology to reduce failure rate (i.e., multiligamentous instability, malalignment, and meniscal insufficiency).
