The backbone’s connected to the neck bone and
the knee bone’s connected to the shinbone.
You know that much, but to properly handle a back or knee injury case, by far the largest category of personal injury and worker’s compensation claims, you need to know a lot more.
This primer on anatomy will examine these important body parts in an educational but entertaining interactive session. As you learn the mechanism of trauma to these body parts, you will be exposed to terminology: the bones that make up the back and knee; the soft tissues that hold them together; herniated and bulging discs; as well as meniscus and cruciate ligaments.
As you learn how diagnoses are made, you will be exposed to medical tests and surgical procedures. Learn the difference between a laminectomy and discectomy, or an ACL reconstruction and knee replacement. While you read plain films X-rays and MRI images, special attention will be paid to the limitations of these diagnostic tests with a discussion of the number of asymptomatic people who have abnormalities on diagnostic imaging.
