Rehabilitation of Complex Upper Extremity Injuries
September 30, 2017
Price: $85 ($76.50 if you have attended a previous course)
*There is an additional fee to register online
Location: TBA
5.2 contact hours

This course will present various complex upper extremity injuries involving the entire limb. Presenters will share complex cases that start with the toe and work their way all the way to the shoulder girdle. Starting with a toe to thumb transfer case study, others include gun shot wounds, complex elbow fracture/dislocation, both bone forearm fractures, nerve/vasular injuries, compartment syndrome, flexor tendons, mangled hands, etc. This course will encourage participant interactions with each other and the presenters to problem solve through these complex injuries to maximize functioning through all stages of rehabilitation.

Guest MD speaker, Antonio Forte, MD, MS, PhD will present the surgical procedure for the toe to thumb transfer. Thomas Berger DPT, CHT will go over rehabilitation after a toe to thumb transfer. Kim McVeigh OTR/L,CHT, MBA will present a case of the Mangled Extremity. Jennifer Dodson OTR/L,CHT will present on a complex elbow injury. Guest out of town therapist, Mike Cricchio MBA,OTR/L,CHT will present a gunshot wound case study and end the course with a lecture on his article “ Scapulothoracic and Scapulohumeral exercises: A narrative review of EMG studies” from Journal of Hand Therapy 2011.

This course is for all skill levels and will be very interactive. I hope you all can join us for this exciting course and learn how to problem solve through complex injuries using evidenced based practice to guide clinical decisions throughout the rehabilitation process.
