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.

Upon completion of this audio conference, you will be able to:
- Describe the latest regenerative medicine technologies and approaches being translated to the clinic.
- Identify the population of patients receiving regenerative medicine approaches, and explain how the translation of innovative biological therapies have the potential to affect physical therapy practice.
- Discuss the importance of developing targeted and specific regenerative rehabilitation protocols for use in the clinic.
- Address barriers to development of regenerative rehabilitation protocols for use in the clinic, and propose strategies to overcome these barriers.
