Wrist Instability: Considerations for Treatment
Aviva Wolff, EdD, OTR, CHT
This course will review the basic carpal anatomy, biomechanics and pathomechanics that contribute to common wrist instability patterns. We will explain how the anatomical and biomechanical contributions to joint stability and instability inform the development of rehabilitation treatment approaches. We will discuss current therapy interventions including orthotic intervention, proprioception, wrist stabilization exercises, and the role of the muscles in carpal stability. We will review the progression of rehabilitation for common wrist ligament injuries.
The course is appropriate for occupational/physiotherapists and assistants, and is available via annual subscription to the MedBridge CPD platform. Subscribe here: https://www.medbridgeeducation.com/findcpd for access to 2000 CPD courses for AHPs for only US$200.
