Description
This course is derived from the textbook by Cynthia Cooper “Fundamentals of Hand Therapy: Clinical Reasoning and Treatment Guidelines for Common Diagnoses of the Upper Extremity” © 2007. This illustrated text and reference emphasizes the fundamentals of hand therapy – for both specialists and non-specialists who encounter clients with hand issues. It provides a consistent format with tips and guidelines for hand therapy treatment. Coverage includes hand anatomy, key terms and concepts, and the evaluation process. A focus on professional issues includes clients with functional somatic syndromes and challenging behavior, client-therapist rapport, and the roles of therapy assistants. Providing many case studies, this text helps therapists think critically about clients' individual needs.
Module 5: Peripheral Nerve Problems/Wrist and Hand Fractures/Finger Sprains and Deformities covers chapters 12, 13, and 15.
Chapter 12: Common Peripheral Nerve Problems
Chapter 13: Common Wrist and Hand Fractures
Chapter 15: Common Finger Sprains and Deformities
