Knee Advanced course content.

First part of the day

    The course starts at the beginning. The intake: where we pay attention to the history of acute knee injury. Here we go deeper into the sign and symptoms of acute knee injury and we start the process of clinical reasoning. It is very important that you have a clear picture of the prior probabilities in order to proceed with your investigation. Here we practice extensive anamnesis on "real patients" with various injuries. The second half of the evening, orthopedic surgeon Dr. S.A.F Heijnen will take us through five case histories in which he will also discuss his own clinical research and treatment options.

    Second half of the day

    This day is all about the diagnostic process, setting up your examination based on your knowledge gained during Day 1. There will be physical practice in groups with again real patients present with different knee injuries. This day is mainly about training your skills of diagnostic testing of the knee. 

    Third part of the day

    This day starts with the entire process of treatment. We will go over with you the best way to set up training within each stage of the process. We will also experience training on this day so make sure you bring training clothes. Day 3 will include the following topics:

    • Basic principles of strength training
    • Progressive loading within the limits of knee rehabilitation
    • Hip dominance or quadriceps dominance
    • Triple extension mechanism
    • Multi directional training
    • Translation of strength training to sport-specific skills 
    Fourth part of the day

    The fourth day is all about testing and measurement. You want to be able to make an adequate statement about whether a patient is ready to return to level sports. Evidence-based insights are given into what tests can be performed but most importantly why. These tests are taken from real patients who are rehabilitating at our practice.
