Comprehensive, hybrid-online, intermediate-level evidence-based course is designed to enhance the clinician’s understanding of the impact of upper extremity tendon injuries on the wrist and hand. Video-recorded lectures and patient demonstrations focus on an analytical approach to the rehabilitation of tendon injuries. Finish up with a Zoom Virtual Classroom session to review case studies and have an opportunity to present your questions to the instructor. Includes treatment protocols, case-studies and review of current research and literature. Focus on: Extensor Tendon Anatomy, Biomechanics and Zone-specific Management of Extensor Tendon Injuries Flexor Tendon Anatomy, Biomechanics and Zone-specific Management of Tendon Injuries Tendon behavior following fractures, complex injuries and secondary deformity Therapeutic intervention Animations and video-clips of cadaver dissection, surgery, pathomechanics, and treatment enhance the learning experience. Participants are cautioned to apply new information and skills within the scope of state licensure law.
