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 2: Traumatic injuries in Sports
Live event: 25th January 2022 – Recordings available after
Traumatic injuries are what commonly come to mind when considering the hand and wrist. Pulling-pushing-twisting activities or an impact force (e.g. falling onto the ground, striking an opponent in combat sports, or a ball striking the hand in sports like volleyball or basketball) are types of mechanisms which can lead to trauma. Diverse structures can be damaged in the process. When presented with a traumatic injury do you know what type of pathology to consider? How do you differentiate between a mild, moderate, or severe injury? What is your rationale for referring for a scan? What should you consider in the management? This webinar will cover all this and more!
