Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will:

  • Discuss available treatment interventions and current evidence-based outcomes regarding the use of biologics in orthopedic healthcare.
  • Explain the etiology, differential diagnosis, and medical treatment principles of common spine disorders in the athletic population.
  • Identify relevant clinical rehab diagnoses and rationale for the use of dry needling and blood flow restriction treatment interventions and educate potential patients or colleagues on evidence-based outcomes.
  • Refine current concussion management practices, challenging conventional principles of rest versus active recovery, rehab progression, and return to sport.
  • Understand the importance the pelvic floor plays in core stability in the athletic population and know when to appropriately refer to a pelvic floor specialist.
  • Critically appraise the current evidence, outcomes, and return to sport criteria after ACL reconstruction.
  • Correctly identify hip pathology early and refer appropriately for various hip preservation strategies to improve long-term outcomes and recovery.
  • Explain the surgical procedure performed during a UCL reconstruction and the medical and rehabilitative implications for recovery.
