The course briefly reviews spinal anatomy, pathology, and types of spinal fusions. The subject matter covers the clinical and medical management challenges of difficult-to-heal bones, including the spine. Risk factors that negatively impact healing are reviewed. Therapies, both conservative and surgical as well as current trends, outcomes, cost, and patient convenience are discussed.
Course Objectives: Upon completion of the course, the participant will be able to
- Identify the stages of normal bone healing and three or more key risk factors that impede bone healing
- Describe osteogenic therapy, its origins, and application
- Assess claims that require PEMF treatment
- Explain basic PEMF research relevant to improved healing rates and the cost-effectiveness of applying osteogenic stimulation to patients of tailed fusions
Evaluation and Certificates will be available below after the conclusion of the webinar for those who attended LIVE. If you are unable to attend, access to a recorded session will be made available, as well.
