Hand & UE : Systematic Evaluation and Treatment of the Wrist 1 Minneapolis MN Feb 2021
February 27, 2021 - February 28, 2021
Wrist I Course Description
14.5 Contact Hours / 11 Procert CCUs – Instructor-led Training
The Wrist I course introduces therapists to a systematic approach to evaluating and treating joint and soft tissue disorders of the wrist and forearm. This course will help you develop a solid understanding of joint arthrokinematics and joint-specific techniques to maximize motion at the wrist and determine how to address limitations with forearm rotation. In addition, this course covers treatment techniques to address soft tissue disorders of the radial, central, and ulnar side of the wrist.
Objectives and Goals
By the end of the course the participant will: (among others)
- be able to integrate the pathoanatomy, physiology, and biomechanics of the wrist joint complex related pathologies into one or more of the following, and consequent, common clinical dysfunctions and/or syndromes: de Quervain’s, Intersection Syndrome, Wartenberg’s, ECU Tenosynovitis, ECRB/ECRL, FCU, FCR pathologies or more severe conditions such as fracture, tumor or systemic-inflammatory diseases.
- be able to identify, through a systematic process, 5 different key landmarks around the wrist joint complex and hand/forearm aimed to assist in the clinical examination and joint specific treatment clinical approaches
- be able to interpret, through a systematic process, the key findings from the proposed wrist joint complex basic clinical examination of patients with radioulnar/radiocarpal joint related conditions.
- design 3 effective treatment interventions for DRUJ and PRUJ dysfunction such as functional instability.
- design 3 effective treatment interventions for chronic (sympathetic maintained CPRS) related disorders.
- design 3 effective treatment interventions for forearm dysfunctions such as Wartenberg’s, and ECU Tenosynovitis.
- outline and perform the general clinical examination and treatment approaches for wrist joint complex related disorders.
