Practical Office Orthopedics: 2024 Video Recordings Package

Internal Medicine Meeting Recordings

Expert clinician-educators will provide participants with the knowledge and tools needed to correctly evaluate, diagnose, and treat most orthopedic complaints seen in the internal medicine office. Faculty will use a case-based approach to familiarize participants with basic joint and tendon anatomy and landmarks and make participants comfortable with performing a concise, targeted office examination. This will be combined with knowledge of the epidemiology of musculoskeletal complaints in primary care to develop an accurate diagnostic approach. Treatment of these common conditions will be discussed, with special emphasis on a practical, evidence-based, and cost-effective approach to physical therapy and medical devices (e.g., splints).

This extensive collection of compelling virtual lectures will cover:

  • the epidemiology of the most common orthopedic and sports medicine conditions seen in the internal medicine office.
  • basic joint and tendon anatomy in major joint and musculoskeletal regions.
  • targeted, practical, and evidence-based diagnostic maneuvers for common musculoskeletal complaints.
  • diagnosing musculoskeletal problems through history and physical examination.
  • indications for judicious use of imaging.
  • treatment plans, including medication, exercises, and use of splints or braces.
  • clinically appropriate resources for patient education and for home exercise plans.
  • recognizing which patients require further testing or orthopedics consultation and which can be safely treated under the guidance of the internal medicine physician.
