Total Hip Arthroplasty is one of the most common orthopedic surgeries used to help resolve pain and loss of function from degenerative osteoarthritis of the hip. In the United States, demand has increased over the last two decades; as the population continues to age while pursuing active lifestyles, hip osteoarthritis may become an even more common diagnosis. This may create more demand for surgical relief like that typically given by Total Hip Arthroplasty. There are other surgical options that help to relieve pain from degenerative osteoarthritis of the hip to restore mobility and participation in activities of daily living, such as Hip Resurfacing. The course provides physical therapy professionals information on hip resurfacing, evidence on the procedures outcomes, exercises and treatments that aid in patient recovery, and advice on how to create a recovery treatment plan.

After autonomic stability of breathing, heart rate and blood pressure, the newborn's primary task upon birth is self-regulation. Adapting to the environment is a function of the central nervous system; as the central nervous system matures the newborn can self-regulate and successfully adapt to environmental stimuli. This course will discuss The Synactive Theory of Newborn Behavioral Organization and Development model and discuss developmental care strategies to promote stability and growth in the newborn. Review details within the body of this course to validate availability of CE credits. [CNE (JAICE) 0.6]

Traumatic spinal injuries, although not as common as other types of trauma injuries, carry the potential for significant and permanent life-changing consequences. Whether spinal trauma results in a permanent or temporary disability, the physical, emotional and social adaptations that occur during the recovery period present unique challenges to the child, the family and the staff members who care for these children. This course reviews pediatric spinal anatomy, discusses mechanisms of injury and specific injuries that occur, and presents clinical management during the initial trauma period. The prevention and management of long-term complications that can follow spinal trauma are also reviewed. Review details within the body of this course to validate availability of CE credits.

Approximately 2.5 million patients develop a pressure injury each year. Up to 60,000 Americans die each year as a direct result of a pressure injury (PI). High incidence rates in hospitals may signal poor quality of care. The federal government considers pressure injury development a public health concern. When communication and documentation do not reflect diligent adherence to practice standards, pressure injuries can result in payment denial and may be a basis for legal action against facilities, physicians, and nurses.

As people age, they experience a higher fall rate compared to younger populations. When seniors and the elderly do fall, they are more likely to become injured or die compared to the general population. Seniors can mitigate this risk, improve mobility, and enhance their overall quality of life through exercise and physical activity. There are four types of exercise trainings: aerobic exercises increase breathing and heart rates, strength exercises improve muscle performance, balance training improve coordination, and flexibility exercises keep the body limber. All senior patients are not alike, though. Frail seniors may live in institutions or other settings that give some level of care support, while others still live independently; each group has its own exercise needs. Seniors may also have special exercise needs after completing physical therapy, regardless of the care support they normally receive. This course discusses how exercise is linked to fall prevention, and the physical therapy professional’s role to create exercise programs that positively improve the senior patient’s balance, strength, reaction time, and functional ability while reducing their fall risk, in both institutional and community settings.

Transportation is an important part of life. From an early age, people have both desire and need to go places. Every day, millions of people use public transportation, Para transit, private services, health care providers, and school systems to get to different locations. While often taken for granted by those without disabilities, individuals with physical, emotional, and developmental disabilities recognize that a simple ride to the store may not be so simple. They may need special care and support, and they are dependent on trained transportation professionals to see that they have a safe ride. This course discusses how transportation professionals use special restraint devices to ensure they are transporting special needs passengers safely and effectively.

Each year, many people suffer back injuries due to improper lifting and carrying practices while at work. OSHA consistently finds that healthcare workers are one of the top 10 occupations with the most work-related musculoskeletal injuries. Physical therapy workers are certainly part of this group, as they routinely move items, equipment, and patients from place to place as they deliver care and treatment. This course discusses how to properly lift and carry a load, how to safely transfer patients from place to place, and how to manage a safe facility.

Aging is a natural, inevitable process that affects the whole body and impacts all people who live to an advanced age. The most effective intervention for older adults experiencing this process is exercise. When older adults participate in strength training correctly, these exercises are very safe and are shown to be an effective tool used by physical therapy professionals to promote successful aging. The normal changes that occur during the aging process must be considered if a physical therapy professional is going to design an appropriate strengthen training program for older adults, for both the healthy, active older adult as well as those who become sarcopenic, frail, or suffer from a pathology. This course discusses the aging process, how strength training is used to offset the aging process, and how physical therapy professionals can positively impact the quality of life for older adults by implementing strength training into their routines.
