#7162 Are Post-Op Hip Precautions Really Necessary After Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) in 2020?
The purpose of this course is to dispel the myth that all therapists should educate all their patients to follow strict post-operative precautions all the time following total hip arthroplasty (THA). The science of rehabilitation, which extends to both physical and occupational therapy evaluation methodology and intervention strategies, is simply not black and white. The “sweet spot” of good, evidence-based therapy falls somewhere in the gray area. This new webinar will focus on the specifics of “post-op precautions” as they relate to weight-bearing precautions, joint angle position (Arthrokinematics), and limb-movement exercises (Osteokinematics) and their impact on joint prosthesis stability and tissue healing. The attendees will find it helpful to have had recent academic, didactic, and clinical experience working with patients who have undergone various surgical approaches to the hip for context on this material.
