This course directly relates to occupational and physical therapy practice, as it provides participants with foundational knowledge in the anatomy and pathoanatomy of the elbow to understand various clinical presentations that relate to the elbow. A portion of the course is focused on performing joint mobilization to address stiffness at the elbow, which is a common occurrence following trauma. With addressing pain issues about the elbow, this course covers how to differentiate the pain-generator with lateral elbow pain and provides efficient methods to treat issues with musculotendinous unit, joint, and nerve. Lateral elbow pain is a very common diagnosis seen in occupational and physical therapy clinics. It also addresses differential diagnosis and treatment with medial and anterior elbow pain. The course will promote improved expertise in treatment of the elbow, leading to optimal patient outcomes
