Day 1: Pre:Course: Foundational Science of the Upper Extremity: An Anatomy and Kinesiology Review Course Description: A working knowledge of the anatomy and kinesiology of the upper extremity provides a solid foundation for therapeutic evaluation and intervention. Using classroom-lecture style and cadaver lab components, this pre course will review the anatomy and biomechanics of each joint, examine the brachial plexus and innervation patterns of the arm and hand, and allow for faculty guided anatomy review with cadaveric specimens.

Days 2 and 3: Comprehensive Survey of Hand Therapy Course Description: This course is designed to provide a comprehensive review of the evaluation and intervention processes pursued for typical diagnoses in upper extremity rehabilitation. Advanced clinicians will describe fundamental concepts, clinical reasoning, and evidence to provide a multi-faceted approach to the hand therapy process. Adjunctive methods for intervention will be analyzed as a means to facilitate outcomes, and expert panels will be offered throughout the weekend to allow a high level of attendee-faculty interaction via discusssion panels. Course Objectives: At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to: • Design appropriate treatment plans for patients with four common upper extremity peripheral nerve diagnoses including ulnar neuropathy, median neuropathy, and radial neuropathy and upper brachial plexus injuries. • Create custom treatment plans for patients with three discrete levels of crush or blast injuries: Finger level, wrist level, distal forearm level injury. • Justify clinical application of three physical agents for patients with upper extremity diagnoses. • Determine how to modify hand therapy protocols for the following conditions: hand fractures (phalangeal, metacarpal), wrist fractures (carpal or distal radius), and tendon injuries (flexor or extensor injuries). • Discuss three discrete patterns of wrist instability using patient history, symptoms, diagnostic testing, and clinical special testing. • Propose an appropriate treatment plan including orthosis and safe exercise progression for 90% of patients with Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex injuries and ulnar wrist pain. • Design a custom program considering post-operative limitations for each patient after arthroplasties, including one each of the following procedures: shoulder reverse or traditional arthroplasty, elbow total arthroplasty, wrist total arthroplasty, thumb carpometacarpophalangeal interposition arthroplasty and index, middle, ring, and small digits metacarpophalangeal and proximal interphalangeal arthroplasty. • Identify two appropriate rehabilitation goals and three interventions to promote post-operative healing and recovery of function in the spectrum of three conditions of rotator cuff injury (tendinitis, tendinosis, and rotator cuff tear), and two instability conditions of the shoulder (traumatic unidirectional and atraumatic multidirectional).
