Management of the Knee and Thigh: Case-Based Vignettes

Presented by Eric Hegedus, PT, DPT, PhD, MHSc, OCS

Management of the Knee and Thigh: Case-Based Vignettes

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 48 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 24 Minutes

Clinical vignettes, or cases, represent the oldest and most familiar form of medical communication. A vignette presents a hypothetical situation to which learners respond, thereby revealing their perceptions, values, social norms, or impressions of events. This form of learning helps students recognize and interpret important data coming from the patient's problem, enabling students to arrive at a correct diagnosis and best treatment course. This course uses four different cases to discuss the most pertinent examination and treatment methods for each involved condition. This course is part of a comprehensive clinical series covering examination and intervention for the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, as well as the upper (shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand) and lower (hip, pelvis, knee, foot, and ankle) quarters.

Evidence-Based Examination of the Knee and Thigh: An Update

Evidence-Based Examination of the Knee and Thigh: An Update

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 71 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 31 Minutes

In this course, users will evaluate the impact and prevalence of knee and thigh dysfunction, understand the imperative patient history elements of a knee and thigh examination, and identify which patient history components are affiliated with knee and thigh pathology. The most common forms of self-report outcomes measures for the knee and thigh are presented and discussed. Viewers will also identify the most prevalent red flags encountered during the knee and thigh examination and differentiate the purposes of each screening test for problems meriting referral. An objective is to synthesize the importance of specific, meaningful clinical findings during the examination process and evaluate the benefit of palpation and manual muscle testing as part of a dedicated clinical examination. Current research is presented throughout the course to provide learners with the proper tools for evidence-based management of these patients. This course is part of a comprehensive clinical series covering examination and intervention for the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, as well as the upper (shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand) and lower (hip, pelvis, knee, foot, and ankle) quarters.

Special Tests of the Knee

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 43 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 23 Minutes

In this course, viewers will wade into the plethora of special tests of the knee and discover not only the traditional tests that are unhelpful with diagnosis but also the best tests for ruling in and ruling out the most prevalent pathologies of the knee, as supported by scientific literature. Where science lacks proof, tests will be recommended based on their clinical use. This course is part of a comprehensive clinical series covering examination and intervention for the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, as well as the upper (knee, elbow, wrist, and hand) and lower (hip, pelvis, knee, foot, and ankle) quarters.

Evidence-Based Treatment of the Knee and Thigh: An Update

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 74 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 27 Minutes

In the course, learners will experience the recommended evidence-based interventions for the knee and thigh. Users will recognize the more prevalent knee and thigh pathologies seen in musculoskeletal practice and understand the proposed benefit to classifying knee and thigh conditions through use of the Pain and Disability Drivers model. Techniques used to target the primary impairment are explained, as well as the adjunctive techniques used to target the primary impairment and secondary contributors, and the techniques used to target global conditional issues. Learners will analyze the effectiveness of each technique for treatment within the classifications. Throughout the course, current research is presented to provide learners with the proper tools for evidence-based management of these patients. This course is part of a comprehensive clinical series covering examination and intervention for the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, as well as the upper (shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand) and lower (hip, pelvis, knee/thigh, foot, and ankle) quarters.

A Primer on Examination and Treatment Metrics

Presented by Eric Hegedus, PT, DPT, PhD, MHSc, OCS

A Primer on Examination and Treatment Metrics

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 48 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 12 Minutes

In this course, learners will be introduced to the Pain and Disability Drivers Management model and gain a greater understanding of the metrics that govern the examination and treatment processes. The examination process is based fundamentally on an understanding of epidemiology and measures such as prevalence and incidence. Examination metrics include measures like sensitivity, specificity, and likelihood ratios, applied with the goal of modifying pretest probability to get closer to some diagnosis (ruling in) and further away from others (ruling out). The goal of intervention is to produce superior patient outcomes. This course will provide a brief overview of outcome measures and discuss common treatment metrics, including p-value, effect size, and number needed to treat. In addition, prognostic factors will be discussed as they relate to outcomes and important measures like the minimal detectable change. This course is part of a comprehensive clinical series covering examination and intervention for the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, as well as the upper (shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand) and lower (hip, pelvis, knee, foot, and ankle) quarters.
