Is the Hand and Wrist a region which you as a clinician feel comfortable assessing and treating? What should you know when differentiating, especially with considerations towards certain pathologies? The Hand and Wrist account for up to 25% of all injuries in sports. Injuries can be divided into traumatic and non-traumatic injuries, which assists in the first step of differential diagnosis. The second step is to consider the anatomical locations; ulnar, central, and radial with volar and dorsal to further assist in the differential of potential pathology. This webinar will provide a wide array of pertinent information, including relevant anatomy. We will cover objective measures, injury management (from self-management to add-on considerations), and how best to approach return to train post-injury. So, looking for a bit of CPD focused on the Hand & Wrist. This webinar will cover all this and more! 

Webinar 1: Non-Traumatic injuries in Sports

Live event: 26th October – Recordings available after

Non-Traumatic type injuries can be enigmatic to diagnose and manage. On the ulnar side there are a myriad of pathologies, hence why it is sometimes referred to as the ‘black box’ of the wrist. The radial side is no easier with conditions like intersection syndrome or stress fractures of scaphoid, just to name a few, which practitioners might not be familiar with. Are you comfortable with red flags in this region? An important consideration whether you are working in sport or other settings. Interested in learning more? This webinar will cover all this and more!
