(*not available to discount club members*) All registrations must be received within 72 hours to be eligible for the group discount** Call 866.392.3343 to register your group today!** Regular Registration Rate: $495 This two-day seminar will present a comprehensive overview of the structural and biomechanical basis of hand function and their relationship to the entire upper extremity. This unique approach will examine the relationship of the hand and upper extremity to occupational performance and suggest strategies for performance improvement. Common pathologies, mechanisms of injury, and progressive pre and post-operative treatment involving fractures, RSI/CTDs, tendon/nerve lacerations, crush injuries, sprains/strains and dislocations will be covered with strong reference to their impact on occupation. Treatment topics include electrical and thermal modalities, splinting/positioning, therapeutic activity, edema, sensibility, ROM, home programs and proper documentation. This seminar will not present a protocol driven approach to rehabilitation. Rather, the participant will learn a framework for physical examination that will permit rapid synthesis of findings into a dynamic treatment plan designed to increase patient satisfaction and outcomes.

PARTICIPANTS COMMENTS *EXCELLENT!! ...I loved the interactive slides, hands-on labs and Paul's down to earth approach and humor. These 2 days flew by. Thank you *Paul is an excellent presenter who makes an incredible amount of information available and accessible in a concise and non threatening manner. I did not feel overwhelmed at any time." *BEST cont. ed course I've been to in 5 years. *I really got my monies worth and then some. * Paul really showed the relationship of the 3 joint structures & how they affect evaluations and treatments.
