Comprehensive Treatment of the Knee

This course solves the question of “What else can I do when I feel like I’ve tried everything for my knee patient?” We teach an entirely different way to treat the knee, with an emphasis on manual therapy. Treatment techniques include joint mobilizations, meniscal mobilizations and myofascial/soft tissue releases, as well as how to customize each mobilization to different patients and issues. Plus, multiple taping techniques will be demonstrated and practiced for dysfunctions at the patella and the tibio-femoral joints. You’ll also learn how dysfunctions above and below the knee can cause symptoms at the knee joint itself. Come learn how to feel confident you’ve left no stone unturned to accurately diagnose the root of knee issues!

 

As with all our manual therapy courses, this course is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give you skills you can use immediately upon returning to the clinic.

Scott Braje

PT, MPT, CIMT, CIDN

Scott graduated from Colorado State University in 1997 with a B.S. in Exercise and Sport Science, a Minor in Anatomy and Neurobiology, a concentration in Wellness Program Management, and an emphasis in Cardiac Rehabilitation. He then moved out to San Francisco and obtained his CSCS while interning under the (former) president of the National Strength and Conditioning Association while engaging in high level athletic performance training. He obtained his Masters in Physical Therapy from Andrews University in Dayton, OH in 2000 and has worked in outpatient orthopedic physical therapy clinics ever since. He began working with Great Lakes in 2004, and, as consistent with Great Lakes philosophy, he uses a “test, treat, re-test” focus on each treatment to determine the proper course of action in achieving maximal results with each patient. Scott is presently the Clinic Director of the Physical Therapy Department at a multi-disciplinary Pain and Wellness Center in the North Shore of Boston.
