Anatomy and Treatment Guidelines for Extensor Tendons of the Hand
Presented by Lisa Michael, OTD, OTR/L, CHT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #4027Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course will review the extensor tendon anatomy and the various contribution of extrinsic and intrinsic muscles to the extensor tendon mechanism. A brief overview and rationale for the utilization of immobilization, early passive motion, or early active motion protocols for each of the extensor tendon zones will be described. **Please have a tight-fitting glove and 4 markers for the demonstration portion of the talk. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA

Taping for Shoulder Conditions
Presented by Ann Marie Feretti, EdD, OTR/L, CHT, Irene Lee, PT, DPT, SCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3928Level: Advanced4 Hours
Master skills to implement in your practice immediately with continued PT Master Class.

Elbow Stiffness: Therapeutic Management
Presented by Paul Bonzani, MHS, OTR/L, CHT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #36871 Hour
Therapeutic intervention for the resolution of elbow stiffness. Joint and soft tissue mobilization, therapeutic exercise and occupation-based interventions to prevent and resolve elbow stiffness are presented. Orthotic principles for prevention and resolution of elbow stiffness are reviewed. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Upper Extremity Rehabilitation for Traumatic Brachial Plexus Injuries
Presented by Anna VanVoorhis Miller, MS, OTR/L, CHT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3691Level: Advanced1 Hour
This course begins with an in-depth overview of the anatomy and mechanics of traumatic brachial plexus injury, possible nerve transfers, and delves into evaluating and monitoring the progress of recovery. Additionally, it highlights treatment priorities and techniques that may be helpful in the rehabilitation of this patient population. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Elbow Stiffness: Biological and Neurological Considerations
Presented by Paul Bonzani, MHS, OTR/L, CHT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3686Level: Advanced1 Hour
The unique anatomy and physiology of the elbow joint are explored in the context of contracture development. Contributions of neurological mechanisms of bicipital co-contraction and shoulder girdle substitution to elbow stiffness are elucidate as are implications for therapy management. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
