This course will provide the participant with exceptional hand-on learning about the carpal joints, pathology, evaluation and emerging concepts in conservative writ rehabilitation interventions. Understanding the wrist is complex – this presentation aims to simplify the learning process with the use of anatomical models and hands on practice opportunities. It is important for the therapist to fully understand this joint’s complex biomechanics and sensorimotor system that impacts alignment and function. Once this foundation has been established, participants will learn how to perform a basic clinical evaluation, and then learn how to create and execute an appropriate plan of care utilizing various fun, functional and evidence-based treatment interventions.
Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
- Identify the major anatomical structures of the wrist and normal versus abnormal wrist biomechanics
- Recognize the importance of proprioception and an intact sensorimotor system and be able to demonstrate how to perform Joint Position Sense testing
- Differentiate between the various carpal instability patterns that impact functional use of the hand
- List commonly used special tests for the wrist and interpret their findings to differentiate between potential carpal instability versus other pathologies
- Identify individualized treatment plans for patients utilizing functional and evidence-based interventions specific to wrist
