This common sense approach to evaluating and treating the UE/Hand trauma patient will provide the clinician with evidence based management strategies. Emphasis will be placed on understanding the anatomy and kinesiology of normal versus pathological structures and functional movement of the UE/hand and its effect on treatment interventions. Upon completion of this course, the clinician will have a solid foundation on which to manage the UE/hand trauma patient as well as on which to build further knowledge.
Upon completion of this course the participant will be able to:
1. Identify anatomy and kinesiology of elbow, wrist and hand.
2. Identify differences between normal and abnormal structure and function of the UE/hand.
3. Discuss importance of radiographic findings in the development of a plan of care.
4. Discuss evaluation and treatment for the UE/hand trauma patient.
5. Recognize appropriate use of splinting and physical agent modalities to counteract potentially negative outcomes (i.e. adhesions, edema, and contractures) for the UE/hand.
