Course Description

This course utilizes content from the textbook “Pathology and Intervention in Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation” by David J. Magee, PhD, PT, James E. Zachazewski, PT, DPT, SCS, ATC and William S. Quillen PT, PhD, SCS, FACSM © 2009, published by Elsevier.
Instructional Level: Beginner to Intermediate
Pathology and Intervention in Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation provides clear guidance on patient management relative to specific musculoskeletal pathology, injury, and illness – all based on a sound understanding of basic science and principles of practice.

Throughout the text, detailed evidence-based descriptions of current and practical rehabilitation methods as well as the tools needed to design and implement a rehabilitation program for musculoskeletal pathology.  Presented is the rationale for choosing an intervention along with challenges presented by the pathology, stage of healing, cautions and contraindications to treatment, different treatment considerations based on best evidence and clinical reasoning considerations.  Surgical pathology is discussed when appropriate, along with the interventions providing the best evidence for clinical decision making. 
To better meet your professional needs, this fully illustrated text of 944 pages has been carefully broken down into 7 modules.  Each module approved for 10 contact hours of post-graduate continuing education (NOTE: board approvals vary state to state, please check your states approval status in the state specific course catalog by returning to our home page and entering both your state and profession).
