  • Description

    This webinar for Denkfysio is about assessment and management of common wrist conditions. Many physiotherapists are less confident to asses and rehabilitate the wrist as they are towards a shoulder, a neck or a knee. In this session we’ll keep things simple in terms of our assessment and give structure around that assessment. In addition we’ll be looking at red flags as well as the best available research for our rehabilitation programs. As part of the assessment Mitchell will share his favourite objective markers. These allow you to set baselines. You will go through pathways of various conditions. Then this course will move on to consider do’s and don’ts regarding wrist loading. As part of this webinar we’ll share three articles about the management of three conditions. For more information: see the video below.
