This session will focus on recognizing that point-of-care musculoskeletal ultrasound is a highly sensitive tool for the diagnosis of soft tissue injury and joint bleeds. A review of joint anatomy and joint structures will be presented, and the pathaphysiological changes in the development of hemophilic arthropathy will be reviewed. Treatment options for hemoarthrosis and joint pain will be presented. Physical therapists will also discuss interventions to be used at the various stages of hemophilic arthropathy to improve joint health.
