QUIZ

SAMPLE QUIZ Knee 102 Rehabilitaton - No Certificate Issued
Questions: 5
This is only a SAMPLE. No certificate will be issued for this course.
  • 1. Rehabilitation of anterior cruciate ligament injuries has advanced greatly in recent years. Restoration of neuromuscular control is an important aspect of contemporary management, incorporating which of the following approaches/considerations?
  • a) Once pain and swelling are under control and quadriceps control is re-established, proprioceptive training can begin (normally 2 weeks post-surgery)
  • b) Include single-leg balance exercises – progressing from stable to unstable surfaces, then adding concomitant therapist perturbation or extremity movements
  • c) Cone step-over drills, lateral lunges and careful progression to plyometric training
  • d) All of the above are reasonable approaches/considerations for improving neuromuscular control
  • 2. Earl & Hoch (2011) evaluated the effects of a proximal stability rehab program in women with patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). One the most important results of their rehabilitation program was:
  • a) The reduction of knee abduction moment, which has been prospectively linked to PFPS
  • b) A decrease in lateral core endurance, which means the knee is better able to stabilize itself during functional movements
  • c) Reduction of the recurrence rate of PFPS symptoms at long-term follow-up
  • d) None of the above
  • 3. Data from the Multicenter Osteoarthritis Study (MOST) indicates:
  • a) Quadriceps strength is correlated with reduced risk of incident knee OA as well as radiographic changes
  • b) Quadriceps strength is correlated with reduced risk of incident knee OA, but not radiographic changes in the knee
  • c) Decreased proprioception is directly associated with the incidence of knee OA
  • d) Neither quadriceps strength, nor proprioception seem to be related to incidence or progression of knee OA
  • 4. In their small, yet interesting study, Willy et al. (2012) demonstrated that:
  • a) Biomechanical changes obtained during a brief gait retraining intervention translated into improved single-leg squat and step descent performance in the study group
  • b) In general, the changes observed were NOT maintained over the 3 month follow-up period
  • c) Hip adduction and contralateral pelvic drop were visibly improved after the treatment period
  • d) Only a and c are correct
  • 5. Nakagawa et al. (2012) evaluated kinematics and muscle activation in men and women with or without patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). Which of the following statements best represents their findings?
  • a) Males and females with PFPS presented increased ipsilateral trunk lean, contralateral pelvic drop, hip adduction and knee abduction when compared to pain-free controls, while performing a single-leg squat
  • b) Males with PFPS presented decreased ipsilateral trunk lean, contralateral pelvic drop, hip adduction and knee abduction when compared to women with PFPS, while performing a single-leg squat
  • c) Only females with PFPS presented increased ipsilateral trunk lean, contralateral pelvic drop, hip adduction and knee abduction when compared to pain-free controls, while performing a single-leg squat
  • d) No consistent patterns were observed, highlighting the individual nature of the relationship between PFPS and kinematic/kinetic measurements

These CE courses that Dr. Thistle does are great for us out
East. We have very limited access to CE seminars etc., especially ones that are research based. So I expect I will be doing many of these over the next little while.
