Course Description: This intermediate level evidence-based course is designed to enhance the clinician's understanding of the impact of upper extremity tendon injuries on the wrist and hand.  This course provides an analytical approach to the rehabilitation of tendon injuries, combined with hands-on orthotic fabrication (splinting) lab sessions.  The focus of this course will be on:  Extensor Tendon Anatomy, Biomechanics and Zone-specific Management of Extensor Tendon Injuries; Flexor Tendon Anatomy, Biomechanics and Zone-specific Management of Tendon Injuries; Flexor Tendon Anatomy, Biomechanics and Zone-specific Management of Tendon Injuries;  Tendon behavior following fractures, complex injuries and secondary deformity; Therapeutic intervention; Hands on Orthotic Fabrication (splinting) Labs.  Animation and video-clips of cadaver dissection, surgery, pathomechanics, and treatment will be used to enhance the learning experience.

Course Objectives:

1.  Identify the anatomy of upper extremity flexor tendons and extensor tendons.

2.  Identify the mechanism of digital glexion, extension and thumb opposition.

3.  List and recognize the various methods of management of flexor and extensor tendons using various methods described in the literature and pratice.

4.  Identify treatment hierarchy and goals for complex traumatic upper extremity injuries.

5.  Fabricate immobilization and mobilization orthoses (static, dynamic and static progressive) for the wrist and hand.
