Successful Static Splinting: Forearm Based Splint Fabrication, Part 2
Presented by Kirsten Davin, OTD, OTR/L, ATP, SMS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #4019Level: Intermediate1 Hour
In this course, types of pre-cut, pre-formed and sheet-based splint fabrication techniques are explored as well as a comparison between volar and dorsal-based approaches. A detailed demonstration of four types of forearm-based wrist orthotics are presented, including radial gutter/thumb spica splints, dorsal and volar wrist cock-ups, and functional position with an intrinsic plus modification option. This course is Part 2 of a 4-part series on static splinting. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Please note: This course is also offered in a series of recordings titled "Static Splinting Series" course 4063, which is offered for 4 CEUs.

Successful Static Splinting: Foundations, Part 1
Presented by Kirsten Davin, OTD, OTR/L, ATP, SMS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #4017Level: Introductory1 Hour
Following a brief overview of the history of splint fabrication and the advances in the splinting and orthotics arena, an anatomical review of hand structures and landmarks will be performed. Types of splints as well as the variety in thermoplastic materials and characteristics will be presented in preparation for additional courses within this series. This course is Part 1 of a 4-part series on static splinting.

Please note: This course is also offered in a series of recordings titled "Static Splinting Series" course 4063, which is offered for 4 CEUs.

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.

Current Topics in Upper Limb Loss and Difference: Unlimbited Wellness and Secondary Conditions
Presented by Debra Latour, OTD, M.Ed. Advanced Practice of Occupational Therapy, OTR/L
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3629Level: Advanced1 Hour
Individuals with upper limb loss/difference (ULL/D) are likely to encounter secondary conditions that include pain, overuse, and perceptions of isolation, and social stigma often require specialized services. This course highlights the development, implementation, and evaluation of a telehealth program that offered preventive information, strategies, and peer interaction.

Rotator Cuff Lesions: Conservative and Post-Operative Treatment
Presented by David Nolan, PT, DPT, MS, OCS, SCS, CSCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3441Level: Intermediate2 Hours
Rotator cuff pathology is common in the general population and even more frequent with overhead athletes and workers. The purpose of this presentation is to present an evidence-based review of current physical therapy practice for the conservative and post-operative management of rotator cuff pathology. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA and AT.

Intervention Techniques for the Hemiplegic Upper Limb
Presented by Christine Griffin, OTR/L, MS, BCPR
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3391Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Evidence based intervention techniques for the hemiplegic upper limb are required to increase functional performance for individuals with stroke. Discussion will include current evidence for intervention techniques such as NMES, slings, splints, traditional neurorehabilitation techniques, and functional use.

Phalanx Fractures: Achieving Best Outcomes
Presented by Rachel Pigott, OTR/L, CHT
