Section: Sports PT Section
Session Code: SP-2B-8628
Date: Friday, January 25, 2019
Time: 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Location: Walter E. Washington Convention Center
Room: 204AB

Speaker(s):   Daniel Rhon, PT, DPT, DSc, Board-Certified Clinical Specialist in Orthopaedic Physical Therapy
  Richard Burton Westrick, PT, DPT, DSc, OCS, SCS

Session Type: Educational Sessions
Session Level: Advanced

This session combines research platforms with a case study and traditional education presentations to explore and challenge the current use of outcomes measures. Topics include the use of standardized outcomes tools, the potential benefits of population-specific tools, and the burden of musculoskeletal injury in tactical athlete populations. The focus is on decision making pertaining to musculoskeletal injury and return-to-duty assessments.

Platforms included within this presentation are:

1. Differences in IKDC scores across the rehabilitation continuum do not exist between those athletes with isolated Anterior Cruciate Ligament injuries and those with concomitant meniscal pathology (Speaker: Joseph Hannon)

2. Clinical Measures Differ at Return-to-Sport Clearance in Functionally Recovered Athletes 2 Years After Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction (Speaker: Katherine Rethman)

3. Relationships between Isometric and Functional Measurements of Rapid Quadriceps Activation in Division I Collegiate Athletes 7 Months Post-ACL Reconstruction (Speaker: Keith Knurr)

4.The Effect of Mechanism of Injury on Gait Mechanics, Tibiofemoral Loading, and Response to Post-Operative Return-to-Sport (RTS) Training in Male Athletes after ACL Reconstruction (ACLR) (Speaker: Naoaki Ito)

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

1. Examine the use of outcomes related to musculoskeletal injury.

2. Explain the challenges associated with commonly employed outcomes measures in tactical athlete populations.

3. Assess the utility of proposed population-specific measures and their relationship to high physical demand tasks of tactical populations.
