Many patients are accustomed to an active lifestyle, so they become frustrated when they cannot move around or engage in activities in ways they did before an illness or injury, or like they did when they were younger. Physical therapists understand this frustration, so they help patients, caregivers, and family members understand and apply safe ambulation techniques. Some patients need help with their basic needs because they don’t have the ability to take care of it themselves; helping them safely transfer from one place to another is equally as important as ambulation. This course discusses how physical therapists can better understand these concerns, so they can, in turn, educate patients and caregivers on was to improve or restore mobility.

Many conditions may cause an impaired gait, which can impact the effectiveness of a patient’s ambulation, efficiency, and safety. Physical therapy practitioners leverage their knowledge to administer progressive gait training interventions to help these patients recover mobility. They also recommend ambulation aids that help individuals restore functional ambulation. This course discusses the basic components of the normal gait cycle, several pre-ambulation considerations, the selection of ambulation assistive devices, and the effective techniques for safe gait training.

Through the course of their duties, those who work in Physical Therapy will care for many different types of patients. Some patients need care due to illness, a disability, or the effects of old age. Others will seem physically healthy, but they may be unable to fully care for themselves due to mental or emotional illness. Some patients will suffer from emotional illnesses that were brought on by another sickness or a disability. To fully care for these individuals, therapists will consider both the physical and emotional needs of their patients; having a better understanding of emotional illness helps them do this. This course discusses several mental health issues that therapists may see in their patients, along with suggestions on how to treat patients with an emotional or mental illness.

Physical therapy professionals work in many settings; some of these settings have very specific documentation standards, others may not. Documentation is the written evidence of someone’s activities, decisions, actions, observations, and other official information about their daily interactions with patients. Documentation should be evidence-based, which helps it to be more clinically defensible. The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) offers documentation guidelines that can be used in a wide range of therapy settings. This course discusses APTA documentation recommendations for physical therapy professionals working in clinical settings.

When patients are comfortable they feel calm and relaxed, which makes their therapy sessions more successful. Helping patients with their physical and emotional comfort as they adapt to physical limitations is at the heart of the physical therapist’s job. When patients are physically and emotionally comfortable, they are better able to rest and sleep, which improves their overall well-being and helps the body to heal. The physical therapist is an important member of the patient’s care team, and they have a direct impact on the comfort and overall health of the people under their care. This course will teach physical therapists how to ensure patients receive the comfort they need to reduce pain and promote healthy rest and sleep.

Communicating with others is a basic human need and the foundation for all social interactions. When physical therapists effectively communicate with their patients, the patient will feel less isolated and have an improved sense of well-being. Often, the effects of aging, illness, and disabilities can become barriers to effective therapist-patient communications, especially when patients lose some or all ability to hear the spoken word. Paying attention to another’s communication needs is one of the most important duties of any healthcare provider. When therapists understand how the communication process works and how to effectively send and receive messages, they are better able to meet their patient’s needs. This course discusses hearing impairments, and how to better communication with patients who have hearing impairments.

Osteoarthritis affects up to 40% of all adults, with knee and hip Osteoarthritis among the most common causes of pain and disability in the older adult population. Osteoarthritis-related disability is a major health problem. There is no cure for Osteoarthritis, but many have tried to further understand common pathologies and the etiology of Osteoarthritis to better decrease the effects Osteoarthritis has on one’s functional abilities. Osteoarthritis can be treated with conservative and non-conservative measures, including surgery. Weight plays a role in the diagnosis of Osteoarthritis, so weight management is an important factor when considering treatment options for this condition. This course discusses how Physical and Occupational Therapy professionals can help patients and clients decrease their Osteoarthritis-related symptoms, while improving their functional ability, using both conservative management techniques and post-operative rehabilitation.

Rotator cuff pathology is a very common cause of shoulder pain, weakness, and limitations of daily activities, resulting in lost time at work and play. Many people can recover after physical therapy alone, depending on the size and type of rotator cuff tear. Others do not respond to more conservative management approaches, requiring surgery to repair a rotator cuff injury. There are many common rotator cuff pathologies that lead to rotator cuff dysfunction. Rotator cuff tears can be treated conservatively, without surgery, or through one of several surgical approaches. It is important to understand the proper rehabilitation protocol following surgery for the patient to reach the best outcome. This course will discuss the anatomy and biomechanics of the shoulder, leading to a better understanding the impact of a rotator cuff injury. We will also discuss the proper rehabilitation protocol following rotator cuff surgery, along with other non-conservative approaches to the management of rotator cuff tears.

For most people, eating is both a necessary and enjoyable activity. There is a very wide range of food types, ways to prepare the same types of foods, and places to purchase raw ingredients and ready-to-eat meals. Eating is more than a basic human need; it’s a social activity where people take a break from the daily grind to catch up with family and friends on the day’s events or have a few minutes to relax. For some people, though, the joy of eating is diminished due to illnesses and digestive disorders. These people don’t get to eat food like they did when they were younger or healthier. Many of them live in care facilities or resident homes where they have little control over their own diet, or they are home-bound and depend on others to do their shopping. Physical therapists may not be directly responsible for the diet needs of their patients, but they should consider these needs as they plan treatment and collaborate with the other members of the patient’s care team. This course discusses digestion, nutrition, and how a good diet helps patients become and stay healthy.

Some people receive physical therapy while being cared for in an inpatient, assisted living, residential, or another healthcare facility. In these situations, each individual has a care plan and is assigned a care team of medical professionals who execute this plan; physical therapists are sometimes part of this team. The care team relies on each caregiver to be an attentive observer of each individual in their care, acting as a vital communication link that ensures each person receives the care they need and deserve. This course discusses how members of the care team, including physical therapists, should observe, report, and document concerns for those in their care.

Many patients have difficulty getting out of bed, walking around, bathing, or using a wheelchair. These difficulties can lead to injuries when a patient falls or attempts to do something beyond their physical capabilities. The Physical Therapist can prevent these incidents by learning how to best position patients and how to help them move around. Patients are kept safe when caregivers know how to prevent falls, when to use physical restraints, and how to watch for other ways someone may become injured. Understanding body mechanics helps therapists determine how they can best help patients without causing injury to themselves or others. This course discusses the signs that a patient might have difficulties moving or staying in a safe position on their own, and what techniques caregivers can use to help their patients move, sit, and lie in a safe manner.

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.

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.

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.
