The Closed Kinetic Chain: Improving Outcomes in Isolated Joint Rehab for Post Surgical and Out-Patient Care

Joseph Daher

Many current methods for acute joint injury rehabilitation have left a large number of patients with long term functional impairments. This presentation focuses on the early integration of functional closed kinetic chain exercise, during the acute phase. The benefits of this type of training early on will improve functional capacity post joint injury or surgery. Research, functional training methods and current topics in functional rehabilitation will be discussed.
