Take Your Knowledge of the Knee to the Next Level and Become an Expert

Let us walk you through a detailed online program designed to enhance your clinical examination and treatment skills. We’ll share with you the evidence-based scientific and clinical rationale behind what you need to know to make an immediate impact on your ability to work with knee patients.

This is exactly how we evaluate and treat the knee.

We'll cover ACL, meniscus, patellofemoral, articular cartilage, osteoarthritis and more.

You'll have an advanced understanding of the knee joint, feel fully confident in your ability to evaluate and treat the knee, and easily become a knee expert.

Over the past several years, we’ve been developing a cutting edge new continuing education format that takes place entirely online over a longer period of time to allow you to learn at your own pace but also to start implementing what you learn immediately throughout the program. No more losing an entire weekend and zoning out in the back of the room for 8 hours! Many home study courses consist of reading a text or watching a DVD, but we always felt they were lacking in content and had no interactivity.

Our solution was to use online videos, presentations, journal article readings, and discussion boards to create a program that I know you will walk away from with a better understanding of the knee.

Welcome to our online continuing education mentorship program on the Recent Advances in Evidence Based Evaluation and Treatment of the Knee, an online program with 7 lessons of content. If you have attended any of our live seminars or read our websites, journal articles, books, or chapters in the past, then you know that this program is packed with great content, clinical pearls, scientific evidence, and more importantly practical information that you can apply to your patients and clients immediately.

The course is highly interactive, both with us and with all of the other participants – you can be as involved as much as you would like, but the more we interact the better the experience. The best part is that you can do this when ever and where ever you want, it doesn’t matter what time zone or even country you are in, you participate when it is convenient to you. This is the future of continuing education.

We hope you enjoy!

  • Lesson 2 - Treatment of the Knee - We'll demonstrate our treatment progressions for the knee joint complex designed to enhance neuromuscular control. We'll show progressions from early to advanced phases of rehabilitation using our 4 phase approach to restore baseline proprioception, dynamic stabilization, neuromuscular control, and functional movements
