24th Annual Primary Care Orthopaedics
This conference will provide physical therapists, occupational therapists, and athletic trainers with evidence-based rationale for assessment and treatment techniques for various musculoskeletal conditions. Through didactic presentation, video, case study discussion, and hands-on demonstration, attendees will expand their skills, as well as be able to return to the clinic and incorporate new treatment skills into existing expertise.
Optional Afternoon Workshops
Optional afternoon workshops will cover those parts of the orthopaedic physical examination relevant to the morning lectures. As in previous years, there will be hands-on workshops covering joint and bursa injections. We will also conduct a workshop devoted to reading X-rays and MRIs. All workshops are optional with limited seating available. Additional fees apply.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Describe how to diagnose common problems in the following orthopaedic areas: trauma, spine, foot and ankle, pediatrics, sports medicine, upper extremity, and adult hip and knee;
- Distinguish patients should generally be referred to an orthopaedist from those best treated by a primary caregiver;
- Outline how to initiate non-operative management of common orthopaedic conditions;
- Name key elements of the orthopaedic physical examination and how to employ them;
- Select the optimal imaging modalities for common orthopaedic problems;
- Analyze how a team approach to interdisciplinary care of orthopaedic problems can improve patient care;
- Describe the national opioid crisis and practice-appropriate pain management for musculoskeletal care.
- Employ the physical exams of the hand, wrist, shoulder, spine, hip, knee, ankle and foot to help determine the next steps in a patient’s course of treatment;
- Identify techniques to properly administer musculoskeletal injections;
- Interpret orthopaedic x-rays and MRIs to diagnose patient issues;
