Wrist II Course Description

14.5 Contact Hours / 11 Procert CCUs – Instructor-led Training

*You must have already taken Wrist I to take this course. 

This course will address

    • understanding the complexity of various types of wrist instability, both within the proximal row as well as the midcarpal joint. Up-to-date research regarding our understanding of this complexity issue
    • surface anatomy: carpals and wrist flexors & extensors
    • quick review of row techniques; joint specific treatment: midcarpal manipulation techniques
    • conservative management of pre-dynamic wrist instability
    • surgical management of wrist instability with clinical pearls for rehabilitation
    • nerve entrapments of the wrist with neural flossing

Objectives and Goals

  • Further explore of the carpal kinetics and kinematics to enhance understanding of carpal instability.
  • Through the use of surface anatomy, identify key bony and soft tissue structures at the wrist needed for testing and treatment of wrist instability.
  • Develop an understanding of the classification criteria of instability and how they complement each other to form a more complete picture.
  • Perform specific manual therapy testing techniques to identify and treat limitations at the radiocarpal, midcarpal, and specific carpal joints.
  • Develop an understanding of the different surgical techniques to address carpal instabilities as well as TFCC and DRUJ instabilities.
  • Identify appropriate therapeutic management and precautions of non surgical and postsurgical instability diagnoses.
  • Perform specific testing and treatment techniques to identify and address nerve compressions at the wrist and forearm level.
