HAPT Hosts World Renowned Dr. Powers

Hayashida and Associates Physical Therapy (HAPT) recently hosted world renowned Dr. Chris Powers, PT, PhD, FACSM, FAPTA for a one day course that was individually designed for HAPT to enhance the clinician’s clinical reasoning regarding proximal factors as they relate to patients and clients with knee pain.  The course focused on development of clinical reasoning regarding return to running in those patients with knee pain as well as patients status-post ACL reconstruction. During lab, the physical therapists at HAPT demonstrated and practiced selected physical examination procedures and interventions that will reduce that patient’s risk of reinjury and improve their return to sport.  HAPT regularly hosts courses throughout the year to make sure that their physical therapists continue to provide the region’s highest level of clinical care and expertise. Physical therapists from surrounding areas are also invited, as it is our mission to better the physical therapy profession as a whole.
