1.00 BOC Approved Clinical Home Study EBP CEU's
COST: $ 29.99 - EXPIRATION DATE: 2021-12-31
Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome (MTSS) is the exercise associated leg pain of the posteromedial distal two-thirds of the tibia, usually arising while running or during weight-bearing activity. The highest incidence of MTSS is seen in runners, followed by dancers and military personnel; this is estimated to affect 4-35% of these populations. Because of the complexity of this pathology, clinicians, and patients often struggle with the prevention, diagnosis, and management of this condition. While experts do not widely agree on the cause, pathogenesis, and risk factors of MTSS, several theories exist. These theories can help clinicians and patients determine proper management and prevention strategies. For effective management of Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome, clinicians must understand the mechanisms of injury.
a) Understand the theories related to the causes and pathogenesis of MTSS.
b) Differentiate the intrinsic and extrinsic risk factors for developing MTSS.
c) Summarize the evidence-based preventative methods for MTSS.
d) Analyze evidence-based evaluation methods for diagnosis and differential diagnosis of MTSS.
e) Design appropriate treatment plans and return to activity guidelines for patients with MTSS.
