All Therapy Network Seminars are pre‐approved for CEUs in the state where the course is conducted when required for PT, OT, ATs & Assistants. Description: 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. Objectives: • Demonstrate a working understanding of the biomechanical systems of the elbow, wrist and hand and relate this information to functional impairments. • Demonstrate an appropriate physical examination of the elbow and wrist. • Identify sound biologically based treatment plans for osseous and soft tissue pathologies. • Identify appropriate splints and positioning devices to improve upper extremity performance. • Identify psychosocial assessment techniques and motivational techniques designed to improve client compliance with therapy prescription.
