Filmed at the prestigious Andrews Institute in Gulf Breeze, Florida and exclusive to HomeCEUConnection.com, “The Knee Series: Exploring Its Biomechanics, Injuries and Rehabilitation Options” presents an in-depth exploration of the knee and common injuries that plague athletes. Initially created as individual courses at Andrews Institute, this guide combines the professional knowledge of five preeminent sport medicine physicians, Elizabeth Russel, PhD, a kinesiology and biomechanics specialist, and founder of Andrews Institute and world-renowned sports physician, Dr. James Andrews.
The knee is the most essential joint for competing athletes in almost every sport, and, as a result, the most common site for injury. For many athletes, speed and agility are critical components for a winning season. Athletes must be able to quickly change direction and positions, run long distances or expend tremendous amounts of energy pushing, pulling, or tackling an opponent. The high demands athletes place on their knees drastically increases the chances of injury that can develop into chronic conditions that can affect the athlete for the remainder of their lives.
This series is a must watch for healthcare professionals seeking the definitive guide to conditions, treatments and rehabilitation of the knee.
This Seminar-On-Demand is 4 hours in length (See individual course approvals tab for awarded contact hours for your state).
