Module Objectives

October 6, 2021: Evaluating the radial volar wrist zone

At the end of this webinar participants will be able to:

  • Identify important anatomical structures and common conditions involving the radial volar wrist.
  • Evaluate/identify common causes of volar wrist pain and perform special tests to identify specific conditions involving volar radial wrist
  • Evaluate for acute, subacute or chronic volar radial wrist pain.

October 13, 2021: Dorsal Ulnar Wrist Dysfunction

At the end of this module, participants will be able to:

  • Identify key structures of the dorsal ulnar wrist zone
  • Select provocative tests to identify: TFCC, Lunotriquetral, DRUJ & ECU injuries
  • Evaluate diagnostic imaging and provide recommendations to convey to referring MD when additional testing may be indicated
  • Construct a treatment plan to address dorsal ulnar wrist symptoms presentation.

October 20, 2021: Segmental approach to Wrist Evaluation and Treatment: Ulnar volar wrist segment

At the end of this webinar participants will be able to:

  • Identify and palpate key structures found in the ulnar volar zone of the wrist.
  • Apply basic movement kinematics as related to the ulnar, volar segment of the wrist, and their relation to therapy.
  • Relate common conditions to special tests for these common conditions as related to the ulnar, volar side of the wrist.
  • Evaluate the need for further tests and imaging on this side of the wrist and make the appropriate referral.
  • Select evidence-based treatment interventions for rehabilitation of injuries to this wrist segment.

October 27, 2021: Evaluation and treatment of the radial dorsal and central zones of the wrist

At the end of this webinar participants will be able to:

  • Identify with the common problems associated with both the radial dorsal and central zones.
  • Choose what special tests will most efficiently help them towards diagnosing patients’ wrist problems.
  • Select special tests that have been found in the research to be the most sensitive and specific to what they intend to rule out with regard to specific diagnosis.
  • Evaluate the anatomy of the structures of the radial and dorsal wrist zones by using proper handling and positioning of the special tests.

Module Descriptions

October 6, 2021: Evaluating the radial volar wrist zone

  • The purpose of this webinar is to discuss how therapists can develop evaluation skills to help identify common conditions involving volar radial wrist pain within a clinical setting
October 13, 2021: Dorsal Ulnar Wrist Dysfunction
  • In today’s presentation we will review evaluation and treatment techniques related to the dorsal ulnar wrist region to include TFCC/Lunto-triquetral interval/DRUJ & ECU injuries. Many times patient’s present to our clinics with a MD script of “Wrist pain” Evaluate & treat. Effective wrist examination can be challenging and requires a thorough knowledge of bony anatomy & corresponding soft tissue structures. Correlating symptom presentation (ie. popping, clicking, snapping, abnormal movement patterns & tenderness) to primary cause (arthritis, fracture, ligament tears, vascular insufficiency, tendon involvement & tumors).

October 20, 2021: Segmental approach to Wrist Evaluation and Treatment: Ulnar volar wrist segment

  • The purpose of this webinar is to provide a review of the anatomy and kinesiology of the ulnar, volar wrist segment and to provide a systematic method of evaluating and treating this segment of the wrist.

October 27, 2021: Evaluation and treatment of the radial dorsal and central zones of the wrist

  • This presentation will inform the audience about the best tests to use in evaluating the Radial Dorsal and Central zones. It will discuss different conditions of these zones. Evidence will be provided from recent studies for choosing most sensitive and specific special tests.
