A live seminar presented by Cross Country Education will discuss joint replacement rehabilitation. “Are You Boomer Ready? Joint Replacement Rehabilitation” is a highly interactive seminar designed to provide attendees the evidence-based knowledge to answer patient-related questions, such as “What should I not do?” or “When can I hike or play tennis again?” The seminar will also examine traditional and cutting-edge surgery as well as evidence-based rehabilitation and return-to-activity guidelines.

According to an online course description, participants will discover the latest surgical joint-replacement techniques, such as resurfacing, tissue sparring, and Computer Assisted Surgery, and examine when it is safe for patients to resume activities—including swimming, biking, and hiking—after a total hip, knee, or shoulder arthroplasty. Seminar attendees will also grasp the rehab implications as they apply to the latest orthopedic surgery for joint arthroplasty.

Cross Country Education also notes that additional course objectives for participants include uncovering and participating in intra-active functional rehabilitation exercises that facilitate return of ROM, gait, and overall function in an efficient manor and ascertain the most evidence-based information on topics such as CPM, NMES, and preoperative therapy.

John W. O’Halloran, PT, DPT, OCS, cert MDT, ATC, CSCS, a licensed physical therapist and athletic trainer, will be the instructor for the course. The educational event is suitable for a number of rehabilitation professionals, such as physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and occupational therapists. The live seminar currently has the following dates scheduled: September 6, 17, and 18 in New Jersey; October 17, 18, and 27 in October; and November 1, 7, and 8 in Wisconsin.
