Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 54 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 48 Minutes

Physical inactivity seems so innocuous, yet it has been steadily increasing at epidemic proportions and is now associated with four of the top eight reasons for death in the United States. The health benefits of physical activity are far-reaching. The body was not designed to remain idle. Because physical inactivity is so pervasive, sharing the science behind physical activity and health will come in handy with almost any type of patient you work with. Knowing how inactivity leads to poor health, how to screen your patients for adequate activity levels, how to engage with your patients in ways that will make them want to change, and how to objectively measure and monitor physical activity levels is a basic skill set that any healthcare provider should be proficient in. This course will help set a strong foundation for clinicians in any setting to be better equipped to help their patients and clients not just move better but also move more.

What’s Behind Patient Adherence and Compliance? (Recorded Webinar)

Video Runtime: 102 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 33 Minutes

Each of us who works in healthcare shares a common goal--to encourage healthy behavior in our patients. We want our patients to heal and thrive, but in almost every scenario, behavior change on the patient's end is necessary. We want our patients to adhere to their exercise programs, eat better, sleep better, move more, fear less, and live better. However, just because what we want for them is "good," actual sustained changes in behavior are a much more challenging goal, even when our patients agree with us. Understanding the science behind behavior change is important for any clinician. Many of us practice as if filling a knowledge gap is all that is required to make change. This webinar will discuss what drives human behavior and how understanding these drivers can allow us to help our patients make meaningful change. It is applicable to any healthcare setting.

Sleep as a Component of Holistic Health

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 74 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 50 Minutes

The influence of sleep (both good and poor quality) carries over into many different dimensions of health, and its impact is often underestimated and poorly understood by both patients and clinicians alike. Poor sleep affects cognition, mental processing, and performance. Poor sleep on a regular basis also shortens the lifespan and increases the risk for developing chronic diseases. A proper understanding is the first step necessary to enable and facilitate changes in lifestyle that can promote quality sleep and, in turn, improve overall health. This is the perfect course for clinicians from all disciplines interested in gaining a better understanding of how sleep influences health and how to screen for disordered sleep, as well as actionable management strategies.

Video Runtime: 64 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 45 Minutes

Sleep is essential for health in so many ways, several of which we do not yet completely understand. However, the science of sleep has evolved tremendously over the last decade, and one of the critically important findings relevant to medicine has been an improved understanding of the relationship between sleep and pain. Because the primary symptom behind why most patients with musculoskeletal disorders seek out medical care is pain, understanding the role of sleep is critical to helping patients manage pain.

Non-Prescribing Clinicians: What is Our Role in Helping Curb the Opioid Epidemic? (Recorded Webinar)

Presented by Dan Rhon, PT, DPT, DSc, PhD, OCS, FAAOMPT

Non-Prescribing Clinicians: What is Our Role in Helping Curb the Opioid Epidemic? (Recorded Webinar)

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

This course is a recording of a previously hosted live webinar event. Polling and question submission features are not available for this recording. Format and structure may differ from standard MedBridge courses. There is a growing body of evidence revealing the dangers of opioid medication as well as the questionable effectiveness of these same agents in managing chronic pain. Their once unquestionable ability to effectively manage severe pain is now being challenged, and new insights suggest they may not be the panacea they were once thought to be for managing pain. The adverse and downstream side effects are far reaching and extensive. The opioid epidemic reflects an inability to effectively manage pain. This course provides a background on societal, regulatory, and cultural pathways that led to the opioid epidemic, and how clinicians can get involved to be a part of the solution.

Derangement of the meniscus is a common knee injury, and often goes undetected and mismanaged. It is also commonly associated with the aging of the tibiofemoral joint, and in this situation, labeled a degenerative meniscus tear. How do you know if a meniscus injury is the cause of pain or dysfunction, or merely part of the aging process and potentially a less relevant finding? Proper managing depends on a good knowledge of prognostic factors, along with a solid understanding of the anatomy and biomechanics of the tibiofemoral joint. This lays the clinical foundation for effective identification of clinically relevant meniscus pathology. A well-focused history and physical examination is the key to properly assessing meniscus derangement in the knee. Following this course you will have the knowledge to display an understanding of the role that the meniscus plays in the function of the tibiofemoral joint, as well as be able to accurately articulate the evidence supporting age-related changes in the meniscus, and the prevalence of asymptomatic meniscus tears.

A well-focused history and physical examination is the key to properly assessing impairments of stability in the knee. Injury to the ligamentous structures in the knee joint is common with acute traumatic knee injuries. This can significantly compromise the stability and integrity of the joint, leading to high levels of impairment and increased risk for development of degenerative joint disease. Concluding this course, conducted by Dr. Rhon, will give you a better understanding of the role that cruciate and collateral ligaments play in function and stability. You will be able to accurately articulate the most common patterns of knee ligament injury, and have a better understanding of the appropriate components of a comprehensive and clinically relevant physical examination of the knee.

The muscles of the lower quarter, specifically the gluteal and thigh region, are responsible for a substantial amount of stability, and critical to proper function of the knee. Many knee and other lower extremity musculoskeletal disorders result in muscle impairments. This means that understanding the functional role of these muscles is absolutely essential to the management and properly-focused rehabilitation of knee disorders. A proper assessment of knee function requires a thorough assessment of dynamic muscle function.

A well-focused history and physical examination is the key to properly assessing anterior knee pain. But successful management depends on a good knowledge of prognostic factors, with a solid understanding of the anatomy and biomechanics of the tibiofemoral joint, and a clear ability to identify the exact location of symptoms and the nature of the activity that lead to the injury. The anterior knee pain is the most common knee complaint that patients seek healthcare for. It is most commonly associated with several overuse injuries. This course will provide an understanding of the two most common overuse pathologies associated with anterior knee pain and help you to accurately articulate the evidence supporting exercise therapy in the management of anterior knee pain disorders. Following completion, you will have a better understanding of the appropriate components of a comprehensive and clinically relevant physical examination of the knee, along with a differential diagnosis list that must be ruled out.
