PNMT Hand and Arm Seminar

 

Hand22.jpg

 

 

In this workshop, participants will explore common clinical problems of the arm and hand. You will learn efficient and effective techniques to address pain at the medial and lateral epicondyle, forearm, and hand. In addition, you will learn how to effectively address neural symptoms such as carpal tunnel.

Learning Objectives

  1. That the participant can state at least three mechanical reasons for nerve irritation
  2. That the participant can state at least two possible soft tissue structures that entrap the median nerve
  3. That the participant can state at least two possible soft tissue structures that entrap the ulnar nerve
  4. That the participant can name the nine tendons in the carpal tunnel
  5. That the participant can name and demonstrate two tests for the possibility of carpal tunnel syndrome
  6. That the participant can state at least three possible soft tissue structures that could create pain and the lateral epicondyle
  7. That the participant can state at least three possible soft tissue structures that could create pain and the medial epicondyle
