PROGRAM DETAILS

Comprehensive Strategies for Evaluating and Treating the Complex Hand and Wrist

Few structures of the human anatomy are as complex and intricate as the human hand and wrist. Occupational, recreational, and daily living activities continually tax this critical appendage's vulnerable structures, and when the normal mechanics of the wrist are disrupted, the instability of the carpal bones can result in chronic pain, impaired function, and long-term disability. Over the last 20 years, practitioners have experienced a dramatic rise in the number of joint and soft tissue conditions involving the wrist and hand, and despite increased advances in diagnosis and management, carpal instability remains poorly understood and fraught with treatment challenges.

This dynamic, one-day course will offer a simple, no-nonsense approach to evaluation, intervention, and functional recovery of wrist and distal forearm injuries. Attendees will undertake a thorough neuro-musculo-skeletal (NMS) overview of the extremity's anatomy, as well as the patho-mechanics of the crowded bone and ligamental complex. The various carpal and distal forearm instability patterns will be examined through case study examples, and participants will outline best practices for navigating through radiological exams (x-rays) of the hand and wrist. In addition, attendees will explore provocative assessments used to better identify or rule out certain carpal injuries and will get the chance to practice 15 common provocative tests that can be used instantly upon return to the clinic.

This rare opportunity to examine wrist anatomy, patho-mechanics, symptomatology, and post-surgical complications all in one session should not be missed!

 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

• Develop tools and techniques to systematically evaluate and treat one of the most complex regions of the human body
• Identify the most common types of fractures and instability patterns of the wrist and distal forearm and understand their associated complications
• Outline best practices for reviewing radiographs (x-rays) of the wrist and understand why bony malalignment plays a role in post-fracture pain, edema, nerve entrapment, and disuse
• Utilize case study reviews to integrate freshly learned concepts into clinical decision making
• Examine the functional anatomy and surface features of the wrist
• Examine the patho-mechanics of the wrist and common mechanisms of injury (MOI)
• Analyze hand and wrist x-rays and how they are employed in the diagnosis of injuries
• Determine when to perform provocative testing and distinguish which test(s) to implement
• Outline useful, functional tips commonly used in the rehabilitation of wrist injuries
