This two-day seminar will provide attendees with a deep dive into advanced concepts related to the hand, wrist, and elbow. Participants will explore intricate aspects of anatomy, biomechanics, and pathologies to enhance their evaluation and intervention techniques. The course will cover a range of complex conditions, including tendinopathies and repairs, fractures, peripheral nerve injuries, ligament injuries, arthroplasties, and chronic and complex regional pain syndrome. Attendees will engage in multiple hands-on labs to deepen their understanding of hand therapy concepts and to practice current evaluation and intervention strategies. Evidence-based interventions such as edema management, scar management, and kinesiology taping will be presented. By the end of the seminar, participants will gain a heightened understanding of hand, wrist, and elbow pathologies, advancing their proficiency in evaluation and intervention techniques to ensure optimal outcomes for their patients.
