Wrist Instability Part I: Anatomy and Biomechanics

Presented by Mirka Normand, MA, OTR, CHT, COMT

Wrist Instability Part I: Anatomy and Biomechanics

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

The growing need for a more efficient health delivery model is driving a greater number of direct referrals from primary care physicians to certified hand therapists. For that reason, hand therapists must be prepared to perform in-depth evaluations of the wrist and determine if conservative management is warranted prior to seeking surgical consult. This course sets out to establish solid anatomical and biomechanical foundations necessary for a clear understanding of the wrist stability and movement.

This is Part I of a three-part series.

CHTs, when submitting this for recertification through HTCC, this course can be used for CAT B (hand therapy courses < 3 hours in length); however, if this course certificate is submitted with the following course certificates listed below (or any combination totaling 3 hours or more), they can be submitted under CAT A (hand therapy courses > 3 hours in length).

    Wrist Instability Part II: Analysis of Movement and the Features of Instability

    The growing need for a more efficient health delivery model is driving a greater number of direct referrals from primary care physicians to certified hand therapists. For that reason, hand therapists must be prepared to perform in-depth evaluations of the wrist and determine if conservative management is warranted prior to seeking surgical consult. The second part of the wrist instability series introduces an analysis of wrist instability based on six main features gathered from different classification systems. The course will discuss the movement of the radiocarpal and midcarpal joints and how it relates to the intricacy of wrist stability and its different components.

    Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

    The growing need for a more efficient health delivery model is driving a greater number of direct referrals from primary care physicians to certified hand therapists. For that reason, hand therapists must be prepared to perform in-depth evaluations of the wrist and determine if conservative management is warranted prior to seeking surgical consult. In Part III of the series, Mirka Normand presents wrist assessments including instability special tests based on current evidence to assist with differential diagnosis and to determine the most efficient plan of care.

    This is the third course of a three-part series.

    CHTs, when submitting this for recertification through HTCC, this course can be used for CAT B (hand therapy courses < 3 hours in length); however, if this course certificate is submitted with the following course certificates listed below (or any combination totaling 3 hours or more), they can be submitted under CAT A (hand therapy courses > 3 hours in length).
