A GRADUATE’S GUIDE: THE KNEE
This video is designed to give the viewer and in depth analysis of the anatomy and kinematics of the knee joint complex.
There is a comprehensive look at the key knee assessment technique related specifically for the knee.
We will discuss a specific knee complex subjective examination and an appropriate objective examination of the knee including palpation, muscle testing, tibiofemoral and patellofemoral joint tests and functional tests.
This video is designed as an instructional video for treatment of common pathology in the knee joint complex.
We will discuss appropriate intervention and treatment techniques for the knee joint complex including patellofemoral and tibiofemoral joints.
Rehabilitation exercise intervention appropriate for common knee complex problems are discussed.
Specific activation of the most important muscle groups in the knee complex and lower limb kinetic chain are demonstrated to ensure that the muscle dysfunction is effectively and efficiently targeted during rehabilitation.
