Physical Therapy and the Future of Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative medicine: what is it and what role will physical therapy play in the rehabilitation of patients that receive this medical intervention? This course will provide you with an overview of clinical advances in the field of regenerative medicine with emphasis on the implications that the translation of these cutting-edge therapies have on physical therapy practice. The development of ???cellular rehabilitation?? approaches will be presented in the light of emerging evidence that suggest a critical role for mechanical stimulation that is often provided by physical therapists; for example, exercise or electrical stimulation used to promote stem cell functions. At the close of the course, you will be challenged to brainstorm strategies to overcome the current communication, educational, and practical barriers to the incorporation of regenerative rehabilitation interventions into the clinic.
