RSI's: Repetitive Stress Injuries of the Upper Extremity: An Evidence Based Approach On-Site Training
This seminar is designed to advance clinical competence in working with the neurological and musculoskeletal issues associated with repetitive stress injuries through the application of current clinical evidence.
This seminar is designed to advance clinical competence in working with the neurological and musculoskeletal issues associated with repetitive stress injuries through the application of current clinical evidence. A thorough review of tendon/nerve physiology, pathomechanics, and surgical techniques will create a foundation for proper intervention. This foundation will then be used to develop assessment and treatment approaches to pathology associated with repetitive stress injuries. Course content includes current conservative and surgical treatment options, ergonomic assessment/intervention, imaging, post-surgical guidelines, splinting options, joint and soft tissue mobilization, modalities and specific therapeutic exercise techniques. The student will participate in lecture and small group discussion before implementing assessment and treatment strategies in laboratory sessions.
This course completely changed my way of thinking about RSIs.
Paul Bonzani is awesome. What a terrific 2 days. The course certainly made my re-think some things and Pauls teaching style and humor was so refreshing
Excellent presentation style ...coming from a background of experience and knowledge
Paul is a master clinician. Kept the emphasis on the important items that you should remember in terms of pathology, evidence, interventions and guidelines rather than protocols.
