This course is geared toward the intermediate to advanced level practitioner and will provide exceptional hands-on learning about flexor and extensor tendon rehabilitation. During the morning session the course will cover extensor tendon rehabilitation, and in the afternoon session flexor tendon repairs including “Proof-of-Concept” will be discussed. Both sessions include orthotic fabrication labs. Understanding the various approaches to tendon repair rehabilitation is complex and challenging – this course aims to present the latest and greatest evidence, including clinical pearls for digital nerve involvement, scar management, and cortical re-patterning. Learners will confidently splint and rehabilitate the most challenging of tendon repairs with knowledge of the latest trends in research. This is a course you will not want to miss!!

This course will provide the participant with exceptional hands-on learning about the carpal joints, pathology, evaluation, and emerging concepts in conservative wrist rehabilitation interventions. Understanding the wrist is complex – this presentation aims to simplify the learning process with the use of anatomical models and hands on practice opportunities. It is important for the therapist to fully understand this joint’s complex biomechanics and sensorimotor system that impacts alignment and function. Once this foundation has been established, participants will learn how to perform a basic clinical evaluation, and then learn how to create and execute an appropriate plan of care utilizing various fun, functional, and evidenced-based treatment interventions. There will be a hands-on splint fabrication demo/lab and participants will also receive a FREE carpal puzzle model as part of this course!\
