Objectives
  1. Plan strategies for protecting articular cartilage from further damage, keeping the original equipment, and avoiding total joint replacement.
  2. Analyze comprehensive strategies that ensure repairs of meniscal and labral tears are successful.
  3. Implement superior techniques for treating first-time muscle strains so they don’t recur.
  4. Evaluate treatment protocols for patients who already have had many muscle strain recurrences so that they have no additional recurrences.
  5. Select interventions to protect tendon pulley mechanisms from tensile stress, compressive stress, and frictional abrasion.
  6. Implement effective strategies for rehabilitating chronic tendinosis and acute tendinitis.
