IAOM-US-NEXT combines online courses with Online Instructor-Led Training (OILT). You get a very personalized mentoring experience from the comfort of your favorite learning environment.
The IAOM-US NEXT Approach to Complete Clinician in Musculoskeletal Management of Knee Pain course takes an in-depth look at knee joint complex pathoanatomy (including menisci and ligament deficiencies, functional instability, femoropatellar joint conditions, chondral defects, etc.), basic and specific clinical examination of the knee comples, clinical interpretation and differential diagnosis, management suggestions for acute and recurrent/chronic knee conditions, overall conservative management of knee pain, among others.
Each week, course participants will log in and receive 2 hours of live skills enhancement around certain patient care considerations – all on a specific case study prepared to develop the knowledge and skills to become a complete clinician. This way participants can see the systematic approach, combining updated evidence and clinical experience/expertise, as it applies to the same case study.
Objectives and Goals
- Exhibit an exact knowledge of pathoanatomy, physiology, and biomechanics for the knee joint complex conditions and related disorders.
- Review clinical examination of the knee and related disorders.
- Show an understanding of how to interpret the clinical examination to reach a precise clinical diagnosis of the knee joint dysfunctions and related disorders.
- Perform effective treatment for structural and functional-related pathologies through an accurate understanding of surface anatomy and tissue physiology of the knee joint complex and related disorders.
- Apply a framework for planning the prescription of affliction-specific neuromotor and sensorimotor strategies management for the knee joint complex and related disorders.
- Integrate evidence and experience shared by the instructors into a complete approach in musculoskeletal management of knee complex dysfunctions.
