Rehabilitation of elbow trauma can be daunting, especially as chronic stiffness sets in. Many clinics default to treatments devoid of clinical evidence. This course provides the most recent evidence in conservative and post-surgical interventions for a variety of elbow traumas. During the morning session, this course will review biomechanics of the elbow. A thorough evidence based examination of the upper extremity, including special tests, will be viewed. Diagnoses of fractures and ligamentous injuries will be reviewed as well as current concepts in treatment techniques. Case studies will be presented and discussed. The afternoon session will start with manual mobilization of the elbow. Appropriate orthoses application will then be presented as well as orthoses fabrication demonstration via videos. This course will present the most recent and highest levels of evidence, including clinical pearls, adjunctive treatment techniques and evidence for their use to prevent or when treating the dreaded stiff elbow. Static progressive orthoses considerations will be explained followed by video demonstrations. The course will end by wrapping up the concepts that have been discussed with a treatment algorithm, case presentations, and question and answer panel. Following this one day course, learners will confidently rehabilitate the most challenging of elbow traumas. The education level of this course is intermediate.
