Functional Orthopaedics One

On my way to my first (true)-continuing education course (first since I actually graduated). Last night was the first 4 hours and was packed with usefulness and fun (the instructor, cheryl, is great). This is also my first day of work I am ever missing :-O

Last night we set up the course with some great review that had a lot of new kinks that I never kne before about some of the basic stuff (like collagen has a half-life of 300-600 days which is significant for healing/restructuring of skin/wounds/etc.).

Went over some evals of sitting posture, standing posture, core strength, gait... all that great functional-outcome heart of PT stuff :)

Looking forward to the nearly 30 or so hours of class over the next 3 days. I will miss sleep however. Trying to apply what I learn back to the acute setting and towards the boards... which I am still finding some time to study for (or at least put the book under my pillow at night to get the info through osmosis :)

I took some pics of the Brooklyn Bridge and FDR Dr. waterfalls that I will try to post sooner than later, wicked cool stuff (did I just type wicked (twice) never goin to boston again), google the waterfalls I am sure there are better photos out there anyway...

Its gonna be a hot one here in NY so stay cool wherever you are...

Most of the orthopaedic surgery performed follows traumatic accidents (falls, motor vehicle accidents, twisting injuries and the like), but other surgeries include correction of congenital and developmental limb deformities.
