Systematic Evaluation and Treatment of the Wrist II Nashville TN Nov 2023

UE Track Courses

Course Description

14.5 Contact Hours

*You must already have 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

  • Through a combination of lecture and lab, participants will…
    • 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.

    This course will consist of live lecture and hands-on lab demonstration modeling techniques over the course of 2 days.

    There will be a maximum of 16:1 student to instructor ratio.
