Rehabilitation of Thigh and Knee Injuries and Shoulder Rehabilitation


Rehabilitation of the LE: Thigh and Knee Injuries

• Identify common muscular injuries involving the quadriceps, hamstring, and groin areas.
• Recall typical sports-related injuries to the thigh and apply appropriate treatment and rehabilitation strategies.
• Apply different rehabilitation strategies based on stages of healing for soft tissue injuries of the thigh.
• Recognize appropriate activities to increase muscular strength and endurance for the hamstring, quadriceps, and groin muscle groups.
• Identify appropriate functional activities for rehabilitation of thigh injuries.
• Identify activities that may cause detrimental stress on a healing/reconstructed anterior cruciate ligament, posterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament, or lateral collateral ligament.
• Identify activities that may cause detrimental stress on the patellofemoral joint.
• Develop appropriate rehabilitation programs for athletes with a variety of knee injuries.
• Determine when to advance an athlete's rehabilitation program by using specifi c measurable criteria.
• Discuss the reliability, sensitivity, and specificity of arthrometry, lower extremity functional tests, and isokinetics.
• Interpret information obtained from an arthrometer, lower extremity functional tests, and measures of strength.

Shoulder Rehabilitation

• Incorporate biomechanical principles of the shoulder as they relate to prevention and postinjury or postsurgical rehabilitation for specific injuries.
• Associate anatomic structures of the shoulder to particular injuries based on function of the structures during the pitching act.
• Explain the role of the rotator cuff in shoulder arthrokinematics and prevention of injury.
• Develop a rehabilitation program for specific pathologic shoulder conditions that takes into account the biomechanical function and healing parameters for the anatomic structures involved.
• Advance an athlete through phases of shoulder rehabilitation based on specific criteria for progression.
• Incorporate rehabilitation limitations and concerns for specific postinjury and postsurgical pathologic shoulder conditions.
