Home Study Course Objectives:
Upon the completion of this course, the participants should be able to:

  1. Demonstrate knowledge of the unique pathomechanics of ACL injuries in the female athlete.
  2. Design a specific knee rehabilitation program, which includes the unique considerations for the female athlete.
  3. Discuss the pathomechanics, evaluation techniques, and rehabilitation programs for soft tissue injuries of the lower extremity.
  4. Design a functional rehabilitation program for patients with patellofemoral dysfunction.
  5. Demonstrate knowledge of the biomechanics, physiology and clinical application of the foot and ankle as it relates to the pathologies of the knee joint.
  6. Demonstrate knowledge of the proprioceptors and various neural pathways, which provides information to the central nervous system and to the neuromuscular system.
