Description
Traditionally, rehabilitation of the wrist has been a persistent challenge to the therapist charged with the management of these difficult pathologies. Options for conservative management have been limited to concentric exercises and wrist orthotic management. Current research indicates that proprioceptive rehabilitation principles regularly applied to knee and ankle conditions may have valid application in the rehabilitation of wrist instabilities and resultant functional loss. This webinar will review the current research into this approach. Further, orthotic management options will be presented.
