Grand Rounds have historically been a methodology of medical education consisting of presenting the medical problems and treatment of a particular patient to an audience consisting of doctors, pharmacists, residents, and medical students.

The Adjunct Education Committee of the National Orthopaedic Division is initiating Orthopaedic Physiotherapy Grand Rounds

Orthopaedic Physiotherapy Grand Rounds 3 was presented online on Mar 23, 2021.  Four physiotherapists of varying backgrounds offer their clinical approaches for a patient with persistent craniofacial/temporomandibular pain. The panel will discuss topics such as psychosocial factors that may affect the patient’s pain tolerance and overall course of injury. The complexity of this case lies in the reappearance of symptoms, with the patient being unable to manage on her own, every 2 weeks of treatment. Panelists then propose various forms of treatment, with emphasis on education and mind-body therapy to address biopsychosocial factors.
