This lively, learner-friendly, comprehensive course is guaranteed to give you the most current approaches to elbow, wrist and hand rehabilitation. Anatomy and kinesiology presentations emphasize the functional applications you didn’t learn in school. We will explore numerous diagnostic categories relative to clinical features, evaluations, and the latest in evidence-based intervention. Through a unique, problem-solving exercise, participants will practice biomechanical assessment and diagnosis. The 200-page course manual includes detailed examination forms and protocols for treatment planning and progression, plus an extensive list of recent references. This course is a must for busy clinicians desiring a thorough update on the elbow, wrist and hand. In addition, it will be the best two days you can spend preparing, if you are planning to take the CHT examination.
