Hand Therapy Essentials
Accurate assessment of hand pathologies is critical for treatment of the hand. Incorrect treatment can cause injuries not to heal or possibly other deformities to develop. Understanding the anatomy and structures within the hand is needed to effectively treat these conditions and prevent further functional impairments.

This 1-day course is designed to give attendees a better understanding of the intricate anatomy of the hand and how to accurately evaluate and treat common hand pathologies. Attendees will discuss commonly mistreated injuries and identify treatment recommendations for dealing with these cases in their practice. In addition, this course provides tips and concepts behind different types of splints commonly used for treatment of common hand pathologies. To ensure full comprehension of the seminar concepts, attendees will have the opportunity to practice evaluation tests during a lab session so that they can feel confident in their practice. Attend this course and develop the skills to treat even your most challenging hand patients.
