Event description

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 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.

DESCRIPTION

his 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”

PARTICIPANTS COMMENTS

“EXCELLENT!! ...I loved the interactive slides, hands‐on

labs and Paul’ down to earth approach and humor. These

2 days flew by. –hank you”“aul is an excellent presenter who makes an incredible

amount of information available and accessible in a

concise and non threatening manner. I did not feel

overwhelmed at any time.”“..BEST cont. ed course I’e been to in 15 years.”“ really got my monies worth and then some”“..Paul really showed the relationship of the joint

strutures & how they affect evaluations and treatments
