Course Description:

You work hard to help your upper extremity patients avoid unnecessary surgeries, but sometimes it can feel like an uphill battle.

Localizing the problem can be a daunting task, and without a clear target, you might be tempted to lean on standard therapy protocols. But unless you’re dealing with a textbook case, this can quickly worsen the pain and inflammation, leaving your patients frustrated, pained by activities that give them purpose, and resigned to surgical options.

Getting your patients on the road to recovery doesn’t have to be difficult.

Join your colleagues at this hands-on seminar, and learn a proven framework that has helped countless patients – from athletes with tendonitis to nurses with carpal tunnel syndrome – regain lost function and reexperience life without the pain.

Get to the root cause of impairment quickly 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.

Sign up today, become the go-to resource for resolving frustrating upper extremity injuries in your facility, and feel the satisfaction of returning your patients to the activities they value.
Objectives:
  1. Discuss the latest advances in upper extremity rehabilitation and their implications for your patients.
  2. Demonstrate a comprehensive assessment, identifying and differentiating root causes of pain and impairment.
  3. Integrate the most effective interventions available for restoring function and reducing pain, edema, weakness, and fatigue caused by tendinopathy and nerve compression.
  4. Combine multiple approaches for better outcomes, including strengthening and conditioning exercises, myofascial release, joint mobilization, therapeutic modalities, occupational profiling and task modification.
  5. Design effective, innovative plans of care for a wide range of upper extremity diagnoses.
  6. Apply the assessment and interventions discussed in this seminar to a series of interactive case scenarios.
