In the emerging health care system many patients are referred to therapy primarily with the dreaded “Wrist Sprain” Diagnosis. This typically happens when a person falls or twists their wrist in such a way as to cause pain yet the X-Ray is negative for fracture. This “Diagnosis” leaves the therapist in a quandary as traditional therapy interventions typically lead to a failure to resolve the issue and an increase in symptoms. This webinar will review basic mechanics of the central wrist, subsequent pathomechanics and propose interventions that will lead to improved patient outcomes and satisfaction
