Initially taught individually at the prestigious Andrews Institute in Gulf Breeze, Florida, “The Ultimate Guide to Knee Injury and Rehabilitation” presents an in-depth exploration of knee injuries, and provides a comprehensive plan of attack for assessment, surgical treatment and postoperative rehabilitation. This guide combines the professional knowledge of seven sport medicine physicians, including award winning orthopedic physician Dr. Kevin Witte, award-winning orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Lydia White, and Dr. Charles Roth who is currently the Orthopaedic Consultant for Ballet Pensacola.
Knee injuries are the most common cause of an athlete losing an entire season of play and carry serious health burdens to athletes of all ages in almost every sport. The majority of knee injuries (around 70%) are non-contact, and occur in sports that involve jumping and landing, quick stopping, cutting and directional changes. And while knee injuries constitute only about 15% of all sports injuries, they account for 50% of visits to sports medicine physicians. When knee injuries happen, they are usually significant. The need for thorough understanding, evaluation, repair and rehabilitation of knee injuries is crucial for ensuring the athlete has a successful return to play and, equally as important, a reduced chance of a re-injury.
This series is a must watch for healthcare professionals seeking a comprehensive guide to knee injury, treatment and effective rehabilitation.
