What is the one thing you hear from every client whose life you touch? The desire to remain independent and enjoy a quality life with family and friends. We see our clients working longer, with industry seeking our assistance to manage an aging work force. We see children experiencing sports related arthritic changes in their teen years, based on MRI results. Our lifestyles have changed – with more convenience foods, a lack of exercise and sedentary work environments.
The result is earlier degenerative joint changes, disability and pain. However, evidence shows no predictive factors based on diagnostic test results to distinguish the severity of degenerative joint conditions as they link to quality of life or function. Grant me your time and learn the keys to effectively managing these clients through targeted exercise intervention, weight management and aerobic capacity.
Important information will be highlighted through case studies, demonstrations, mock patient presentations and analysis of the latest coming from research studies that should guide your treatment decisions. I will take you through the assessment process, detailing the key steps of the pathological changes, and evaluation techniques and concepts, specifically including skills to evaluate and treat the degenerative joint. We will delve in to both non-operative and surgical interventions currently used to treat DJD patients, as well as the latest rehabilitation protocols, so that you can return your own clients to active once again!
