  • Perform specific manual therapy testing techniques to identify and treat limitations at the radiocarpal and midcarpal joints.
  • Recognize indications and contraindications for mobilization/dynamic splinting to address forearm limitations following a wrist trauma.
  • Perform specific manual therapy techniques to address radial, central, and ulnar wrist pain through use of transverse friction, neural flossing, and/or joint specific techniques.
  • Develop an understanding of the anatomy and kinesiology of the wrist and forearm as it relates to joint mobilization.
