This course will present a pertinent review of clinical anatomy and biomechanics of the shoulder, hip, and knee. The main purpose will be to discuss the evidence-based features of the examination and management of individuals with shoulder, hip, and knee joint replacements, with emphasis on outcome measures and effective measurable interventions  within a clinical reasoning framework. This course will use a combination of lecture, panel discussion, and demonstration of therapeutic exercises and manual therapy to facilitate learning and exchange of ideas, with an emphasis on clinical decision making in the acute and port acute care rehabilitation settings. 

At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to:

1. Describe the relevant clinical anatomy of the shoulder, hip and knee joint.

2. Discuss the relevant biomechanics in open and closed kinetic chain of the shoulder, hip, and knee joint.

3. Explain how abnormal anatomy and biomechanics can lead to clinical pathology.

4. Develop independence in the examination of individuals following joint arthroplasty surgery.

5. Develop independence in recognizing complications following total joint arthroplasty.

6. Incorporate appropriate therapeutic and manual therapy interventions with evidence-based guidelines where appropriate in the management of the patients with joint arthroplasties.
