Zone of Apposition, Total Hip Replacement, and Client Wants vs Needs – Movement Debrief Episode 74

Movement Debrief Episode 74 is in the books. Below is a copy of the video for your viewing pleasure, and audio if you can’t stand looking at me.

Here is the set list:

  • What is a zone of apposition (ZOA)?
  • How does one attain a ZOA?
  • Are we expected to keep a ZOA at all times?
  • What activities should be focused on after a total hip replacement?
  • What considerations should be made for specific procedures?
  • How do we get patients/clients to focus on things they need vs what they want to do?
  • How can I educate patients/clients better on how certain activities can be beneficial to them?

If you want to watch these live, add me on Facebook . They air every Wednesday at 8:30pm CST.
