There has been a rapid emergence of regenerative medicine and rehabilitation in the nonoperative treatment of osteoarthritis. Therefore, it is imperative that today's clinician be highly informed and able to provide patients with the best evidence available on this hot topic. With respect to optimal patient care, today's clinician should strive to practice at the highest level of their license every day. This one-hour course will provide the clinician with the latest evidence on the application and rehabilitation implications of orthobiologics/regenerative medicine in the nonoperative treatment of osteoarthritis.

1. Osteoarthritis and the Impact on the US Healthcare System

The rise in osteoarthritis over the next 10–20 years in the US will challenge our healthcare systems. The need for nonoperative treatments will expand from what is currently and traditionally chosen to manage this debilitating condition. Today’s rehabilitation clinician needs to be knowledgeable in current and new cutting-edge treatments that will be offered to their patients.

2. Indications and Applications of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

The field of regenerative medicine is rapidly becoming more popular to address the significant rise in osteoarthritis. The most sought-after treatment is the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Clinical trials and high-level research have shown that PRP is a more effective nonoperative treatment for osteoarthritis than our current treatment options. Therefore, today’s rehabilitation clinician needs to be knowledge in its therapeutic actions and rehab implications to ensure optimal patient outcomes.

3. Indications and Applications of Stem Cells

The field of regenerative medicine is rapidly becoming more popular to address the significant rise in osteoarthritis. The use of adipose-tissue-derived and bone-marrow-harvested stem cells is fast becoming a treatment method for this population. Clinical trials and high-level research have shown positive nonoperative outcomes for osteoarthritis. Therefore, today’s rehabilitation clinician needs to be knowledgable about the therapeutic actions and rehab implications of stem cells to ensure optimal patient outcomes.

4. Indications and Applications of Viscosupplementation

In the US, viscosupplementation (hyaluronic acid) and cortisone are currently the two most common injections given in the nonoperative treatment of osteoarthritis. Unlike PRP and stem cells, viscosupplementation is FDA approved and covered by insurance companies. This chapter will cover the most recent evidence on viscosupplementation and how the findings may facilitate the FDA approval and insurance coverage of PRP and stem cells.

5. The Role of Practitioners: Exercise and Manual Therapy

Manual therapy in conjunction with therapeutic exercise is the rehabilitation clinician’s treatment of choice in the nonoperative management of osteoarthritis. This chapter will dive into the latest and highest-level evidence to ensure clinicians practice at the highest level of their licenses.
