Management Of Nerve & Tendon Pain In the Upper Extremity On-Site Training

This on-site training class is also available as Public Schedule Seminar.

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.

Course Description/Agenda


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.

 

 

  

COURSE OBJECTIVES

The participant will be able to identify the anatomical and biomechanical foundations for Repetitive Stress Injuries.

 

The participant will be able to identify sound biologically based treatment plans for RSI management.

 

The participant will be able to perform soft tissue mobilization strategies for remediation for the presented pathologies.

 

The participant will be able to demonstrate and instruct the proper application of ergonomic interventions for the presented pathologies.

 

The participant will be able select and prioritize appropriate splinting and immobilization strategies for workplace management and pain control.
