1806 – Rehab for Injured Warriors
Beginner / 1-hour Lecture
Faculty: Mary Wykle, PhD, ATRIC
Injured Soldiers and athletes expect an aggressive and higher standard of therapy than the average patient or client. The type of injury dictates the appropriate protocol and few have simple and/or one basic injury. Understanding the patient’s abilities before injury, time in recovery, goals, and functional level is basic to developing a challenging rehabilitation program specific to their needs.
1) Discover the prevailing complexities of injuries currently being seen.
2) Determine goals common to this population.
3) Establish parameters of care with expected outcomes.
4) Evaluate progress.
