Special collection - knee
NOTE: CEUs Not Offered For This Course
This monograph set is part of the Editor’s “Special Collections” that bundle the best single monographs from various series we have published. The Special Collections are joint region based and include the hip, knee, and shoulder. By creating this ala carte product registrants will be able to “dig deep” into the care of a particular joint complex.
- Identify and discuss anatomical and biomechanical factors that influence the evaluation and treatment of knee dysfunction.
- Use evidence-based practice to determine appropriate tests and measures, examinations, evaluations, plans of care, and interventions.
