A Master Clinician Tackles The Knee

Contact Hours: 5

Seminar Description:

Experience two days in the life of Holly Jonely ScD, PT, COMT, ATC as she tackles the evaluation and management of chronic knee pain. She will follow a patient with multiple joint and muscle complaints through a systematic initial evaluation and two treatment sessions. You will have the opportunity to observe as if through her own eyes the direct clinician to patient interaction as Dr. Jonely demonstrates a patient intake, clinical examination, and management proposal. Step into the mind of a master clinician as you review the evaluation and treatment session along with commentary directed by Dr. Carole B. Lewis, PT, DPT, GCS, GTC, CCOEE, MPA, MSG, PhD, FAPTA with input from Dr. Jonely. Their discussions are packed with evidence based suggestions and support to assist in the management of a patient with chronic knee pain. We hope that this experience will help you reflect upon your own strengths and that you come away inspired to continue to develop them in your clinical practice.
