This two-day seminar will present a comprehensive overview of the structural and biomechanical basis of hand, wrist & elbow function and their relationship to the entire upper extremity. This unique approach thoroughly examines the relationship of these structures to human performance and suggest strategies for functional improvement. Common pathologies, mechanisms of injury, and progressive pre and post-operative treatment involving fractures, RSI/CTDs, tendon/nerve lacerations, arthritis, sprains/strains and dislocations will be covered with strong reference to their impact on function. Course content includes medical screening, differential diagnosis, imaging, functional progression of treatment, splinting/casting, PAMs, pain management and the non-compliant patient. This seminar will NOT present a “protocol driven approach” to rehabilitation. Rather, the participant will learn a “framework” for physical examination that will permit rapid synthesis of findings into a “dynamic treatment plan” designed to increase patient satisfaction and outcomes.
