Date: Thursday, February 18, 2021

Time: 5:00 PM PT / 6:00 PM MT / 7:00 PM CT / 8:00 PM ET

Deadline to register: Thursday, February 18, 2021 at 7:00 PM ET

Presented by: Shrikant Chinchalkar, M.Th.O, B.Sc.OT, OTR, CHT

Format:  75 minutes presentation, 15 minutes Q&A (1.5 hrs. total)

The wrist and digits share an intricate relationship with each other. The position of the wrist influences
functioning of the digital flexors, extensors and intrinsics despite DRUG and radio-ulnar joint being inherently
unstable. The excursion of the musculotendinous structures in relation to the ligamentous contribution for
stability as well as mobility produces a marvellous kinematic chain reaction. The unique mechanism of both
flexion and extension of the fingers are truly dependent upon the motion of the phalanges over metacarpals, whereas the mechanism of thumb opposition and extension gives the entire hand functional ability for co-
ordination and strength. Any disturbance occurring along the entire course of anatomy produces an altered
behavior of the digits causing pathological disturbance of the kinematic chain. The presentation discusses the
normal physiology of motion and the details of pathomechanics. The presentation includes: fluoroscopy,
animation, cadaver dissection and video clips of normal and abnormal kinematic chain to simplify
understanding of the wrist and hand kinematics.

Learning Objectives:
At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the anatomy of the wrist and digits.
  • Understand the normal mechanism of wrist flexion/extension and deviation.
  • Understand the normal mechanism of finger flexion and extension.
  • Understand the normal thumb opposition and extension.
  • Understand how to treat pathologies based on clinical case presentations

Attendees earn 1.5 contact hours, or 0.15 CEUs (change from previous webinars, which are normally 1 CEU)

Can't watch live?
Registrants will have access to the recording after the live event to watch on their own time.

An email will be sent to all registrants approximately three to five business days after the live presentation with access to the recording, handout and quiz for CE credit.
