Agenda
8:00 – Review of elbow mechanics/anatomy and the relationship to each pathology 8:10 – Differential assessment of the medial elbow: Ulnar nerve/ulnar collateral ligament/medial tendinopathy 8:30 – Therapeutic intervention: Medial elbow conditions 8:45 – Differential assessment of the lateral elbow: Radial nerve/lateral collateral ligament/lateral tendinopathy 9:00 – Therapeutic interventions: Lateral elbow 9:30 – Q/A Adjourn

Description
Soft tissue pain at the elbow remains a challenging clinical problem for therapists. While the problems of both medial and lateral tendinopathy have gained increased attention, resolution of these issues remain problematic. Further differential assessment of muscle overload from tendinopathy remains difficult. This webinar presents an introduction to physical examination techniques designed to reduce confusion and improve the ability to assess tendon versus ligament issues. Subsequent treatment concepts are presented to improve exercise and activity modification prescription.
