Course: #2142 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
Over the past 20 years, the advent of highly active anti-retroviral therapy (HAART) has increased the life expectancy of people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA). With proper management, HIV can now be a chronic condition with a symptom burden including musculoskeletal, neurological, and cardiopulmonary impairments as well as chronic pain. Across all clinical settings and in populations of every age, PTs will increasingly encounter PLWHA in varying stages of the illness. In this webinar entitled, "Physical Therapy Interventions for People Living with HIV/AIDS", we will briefly review the epidemiology and disease process and discuss how HIV/AIDS affects the musculoskeletal, neurological, and cardiopulmonary systems. We will then discuss specific treatment-based interventions for common HIV-related impairments seen in this population. Several case studies will be presented as well as videos demonstrating effective interventions for common HIV-related issues.
