Sign up now for this hands-on training, and learn how to get to the root cause of impairment faster with a comprehensive assessment that combines the best evaluations currently available. Revolutionize your therapy toolbox with innovative interventions you can use immediately to accelerate progress. And design advanced plans of care for a variety of common upper extremity diagnoses, fluently combining techniques for optimal outcomes. Join the former president of the American Society of Hand Therapists, Kristin Valdes, as she guides you through a proven framework for upper extremity rehabilitation that has helped countless patients regain lost function and rediscover life without the pain. Objectives: • Evaluate the latest advances in upper extremity rehabilitation and their implications for your patients. • Demonstrate a comprehensive assessment, identifying and differentiating root causes of pain and impairment. • Integrate the most effective interventions for restoring function and improving ROM, strength, dexterity, mobility, stability, proprioception and sensation. • Combine multiple approaches for better outcomes, including provocative testing, neuromuscular reeducation, elastic taping, graded motor imagery, mirror therapy, eccentric exercises and more. • Design effective, innovative plans of care for a wide range of upper extremity diagnoses. • Apply the assessments and interventions discussed in this seminar to a series of interactive case scenarios.
