Overview

This seminar will focus mostly on the major joints of the lower extremities that are frequently subjected to injuries and degenerative osteoarthritis. Description of the anatomy of the hip, knee and ankle is followed by the range of movement of each one, as understanding normal function is key to detect any impairments during a medical examination.

A number of special tests and neurovascular assessments are also described. The presentation will focus on hip luxation and hip osteoarthritis, hip dysplasia, avascular necrosis of the femoral head, slipped capital femoral epiphysis, trochanteric bursitis, and snapping hip; for the Knee: meniscal tear, anterior cruciate ligament rupture, knee osteoarthritid, patella tendon tear; and for the foot, hallux valgus.

A few cases of impairment assesment will be presented, including a step-by-step calculation of impairment of the lower extremities, according to the AMA 4th Edition used in Victoria.

This seminar is a 2 part series, Dr. Thomas Kossmann will be presenting on upper extremities on
