Clinical Assessment - Elbow, Wrist & Hand
This course is split into two parts (Part a and b) and forms part of Phase 2 of the Musculoskeletal Remedial and Exercise Therapy course.

Phase 2: Module 7: Clinical Assessment Elbow, Wrist & Hand
Overview

Structure of the Elbow, Wrist & Hand
Anatomy of all ligaments, bursa, muscles, connective tissue, nerves and blood supply to the Elbow, Wrist & Hand
Active, Passive, Active Resisted, and Clinical testing for the Elbow, Wrist & Hand
Manual therapy techniques for the Elbow, Wrist & Hand
Exercise intervention of the Elbow, Wrist & Hand - muscular endurance, strength, proprioception and functional tasks
All elements integrate the case history, pain science and tissue healing information and activities covered in phase 1


Pre-Course:

You will complete a worksheet that will introduce you to the anatomy and function of the Elbow, Wrist & Hand


Part A
Part a) During the morning session you will:

Learn in-depth anatomy for the Elbow, Wrist & Hand region:

Bones and bony landmarks: Humerus, Radius, Ulna, Carpals, Metacarpals, Phalanges
Joints: HumeroUlnar, RadioHumeral, Proximal/Distal RadioUlnar, RadioCarpal, MidCarpal, Intercarpal, Metacarpophalangeal (MCP), Proximal and distal Interphalangeal (PIP's and DIPs)
Ligaments: Ulnar Collateral, Radial Collateral, Annular Ligament, Palmar and dorsal ligaments, TFCC
Movements of the Elbow, Wrist & Hand
Bursa: Olecranon
Muscles: Biceps, Brachialis, Brachioradialis, Supinator, Triceps, Anconeus, Pronator Teres, Pronator Quadratus, Flexor Carpi Radialis, Palmaris Longus, Flexor Carpi Ulnaris, Extensor CarpiRadialis Longus/Brevis, Extensor Carpi Ulnaris, Extensor Digitorum
Blood Vessels and Nerves: Median, Ulna and Radial Nerve, Brachial, Radial, Scaphoid Blood supply




Part a) During the afternoon session you will:

Learn how to conduct clinical testing for the Elbow, Wrist & Hand region including:

Active & Passive Range of movement testing
Active Resisted (Strength) testing
Clinical tests (Including the sensitivity and specificity): Cozens, Maudsleys, Medial/ Lateral Epicondylalgia, Valgus/Varus Stress tests, Phalens, Finkelstein, TFF Load test
Please note: This course does allow you to diagnose Musculoskeletal conditions - the intention is to make sure you can provide a thorough assessment so you may refer onwards to a healthcare practitioner

Learn soft tissue therapy and joint mobilisation techniques for the Elbow, Wrist & Hand including: Prone, supine and side lying techniques, Neuromuscular technique (NMT), Soft Tissue Release technique (STR), Joint mobilisation techniques, Soft Tissue Massage (STM)


Part b) During the afternoon session you will:

Learn how to structure and plan an early stage exercise plan for someone recovering from an injury
Learn how to incorporate elements of pain science into your injury management

Assessment

3 Parts - Part a) Pre-course worksheet (As above); Part b) Elbow, Wrist & Hand injury fact sheet; Part c) Video: Delivery of early stage exercises
If you are completing the full diploma course you will be expected to reflect on the content of the Explain Pain and Tissue Healing days throughout your 200 hours of clinical practice and how you have used the skills/communication from those modules with real-life clients
