Course Details

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 comprehensive course provides an analytical approach to the rehabilitation of tendon injuries, combined with hands-on orthotic fabrication (splinting) lab sessions. Includes treatment protocols, case-studies and review of current research and literature.

Focus on:

 

Course Objectives:

 

Upon completion of course, therapist will:

  • recognize and understand the details of extensor tendon anatomy and biomechanics
  • learn zone-specific extensor tendon management
  • recognize and understand the details of flexor tendon anatomy and biomechanics
  • learn zone-specific flexor tendon management
  • recognize and differentiate the mechanism of digital motion
  • recognize impact of fracture on tendon behavior
  • understand causes and management of tendinopathies of the hand

 

Course features an in-depth presentation of:

  • extensor tendon anatomy, biomechanics and zone-specific management of extensor tendon injuries
  • flexor tendon anatomy, biomechanics and zone-specific management of tendon injuries
  • tendon behavior following fractures, complex injuries and secondary deformity
  • tendon transfers and grafts
  • tendiopathies
  • hands on orthotic fabrication (splinting) - optional
