International Rehabilitation Therapy Following Knee Surgery

Patient recovering from knee surgery using the world's leading rehabilitation therapy

Course overview

The International Rehabilitation Institute (IRI) is the home of the world’s leading minds in rehabilitation medicine.

Our training is delivered through online instruction videos and live streaming video sessions. Training materials and delivery are in English and Mandarin Chinese.

This course provides doctors, nurses, therapists and all interested professionals with an overview of common principles and practices for treatment of the knee through the use of a variety of teaching and learning activities.

The knee is a complicated joint comprising several crucial parts. While it is one of the largest joints in the body, most medical experts would agree it is also one of the most complex. It joins the thigh bone (femur) to the shin bone (tibia). The smaller bone that runs alongside the tibia (fibula) and the kneecap (patella) are the other bones that together go to make up the knee joint. The IRI course covers all this key detail.

Within the leg, tendons connect the knee bones to the leg muscles that move the knee joint while ligaments join the knee bones and provide essential stability:

  • The anterior cruciate ligament prevents the femur from sliding backwards on the tibia (or the tibia sliding forward on the femur).
  • The posterior cruciate ligament prevents the femur from sliding forward on the tibia (or the tibia from sliding backwards on the femur).
  • The medial and lateral collateral ligaments prevent the femur from sliding side to side.

Students will learn that two C-shaped pieces of cartilage called the medial and lateral menisci act as shock absorbers between the femur and tibia. Overall, the knee is obviously complicated and there is a great deal to learn in order to advance your knowledge of this vital joint that is so important for smooth and ongoing mobility.

This course delivers best-practice rehabilitation training based on the Australia-US model. If you are in China and you want to learn best practice rehabilitation for the knee, this is the perfect course for you.

膝关节是由几个关键部位组成的复杂关节。 尽管膝关节是人体内最大的关节之一,但它同样被大多数医学专家视为最复杂的关节之一。 此关节连接着大腿骨(股骨)和小腿骨(胫骨)。 这些较小的骨骼连同胫骨(腓骨)和膝盖骨(髌骨)共同构成了膝关节的其它骨骼。 IRI 课程涵盖了上述内容的所有关键细节。

  • 前交叉韧带限制股骨沿胫骨向后移位(或胫骨沿股骨向前移位)。
  • 后交叉韧带限制股骨沿胫骨向前移位(或胫骨沿股骨向后移位)。
  • 内侧和外侧副韧带则限制股骨左右移位。

学员还将了解到两块呈“C”形的软骨称为内侧和外侧半月板,它们在股骨和胫骨之间起到减震作用。 总体而言,膝关节显然极其复杂。学员仍需要学习大量知识以提高认识,了解膝关节对维持平稳和持续活动的重要性。

本课程的授课方式基于澳美模式,提供康复培训的最佳实践。 如果您身在中国,希望学习膝关节康复的最佳实践,这门课程是为您量身打造的完美选择。
