Sports Medicine Pediatric and Adolescent Population Series: The Use of Perturbation Training Through a Continuum of Care in ACL Injuries

Monday, February 5, 2018

Abstract: Following ACL tear, some patients may not wish to have reconstruction surgery (Copers). Pertubation training involves three different surfaces (tilt board, roller board, platform) to expose the patient to uncontrolled situations in a controlled manner. This technique has been shown to allow for return to Level 1 sports without episodes of giving way. This may be a viable option for certain patients when specific criteria are met. 

Participants will be able to: Utilize a screening tool to determine a patient who may be a potential coper; describe the three surfaces used for perturbation training, and identify selective activation patterns vs. co-contraction patterns of the knee. 

Speaker: Beth Ackerman, PT, DPT, SCS         
Location: CHKD Health Center at Landstown 
CME Credits: Earn up to 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™
