Lateral and Medial Elbow Epicondylosis: Differential Diagnosis and Treatment Guidelines

Price: $29.95 Hours:3 Contact Hours
Item # Q3479  

Epicondylosis is a common problem that can affect a broad range of individuals, from industrial workers to athletes. It is an overuse injury of elbow tendons that frequently causes chronic elbow pain that can interfere with work, recreation, and daily activities.  Although many healthcare professionals assume these tendon pathologies are related to an inflammatory condition, the most current research has demonstrated that this tendon pathology is most commonly due to a degenerative process.  As a result, inappropriate therapeutic interventions are being prescribed for patients with epicondylosis, resulting in inconsistent patient responses and high rates of recurrent symptoms. It is important for physical and occupational therapists to be able to recognize and manage epicondylosis as a primarily degenerative condition. By doing so, therapists can more effectively reduce the duration of this condition. 

This intermediate-level course provides a review of relevant elbow anatomy, examines other possible causes of elbow pain, describes treatment techniques commonly used in management of the disorder, and discusses areas where further research is needed.  Various approaches to restoring pain-free elbow function are examined including conservative measures, post-surgical treatment options, and medical interventions. Recommendations are made regarding the most effective treatment interventions to promote successful outcomes based on current evidence.  This course is appropriate for physical therapists and physical therapist assistants, occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants, and rehabilitation professionals who, in the course of their clinical practice, are likely to diagnosis and manage lateral and medial epicondylosis, and attempt to prevent its recurrence.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Improving Intervention Effectiveness

Price: $29.95 Hours:3 Contact Hours
Item # Q3484  

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most common compression neuropathy of the upper extremity; impacting up to 10 million people a year. The sources of CTS are varied and can be precipitated by many different aspects of daily life; however, CTS primarily results from repeated or prolonged compression of the median nerve as it passes through the carpal tunnel along with nine flexor tendons. Median nerve compression can result from repetitive hand and wrist activities, a specific traumatic injury, a systemic condition such as diabetes or pregnancy, or the thickening of the protective sheaths that surround the flexor tendons that extend through the carpal tunnel. Exposure to these varied sources of compression can place an individual on the path to developing CTS without being aware of the progression of the condition until symptoms appear. 

This course enables practitioners to develop an evidence-based practice approach to the assessment, prevention, and treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome. Although designed for intermediate-level clinicians, the course begins with a brief overview of the anatomical and physiological features of CTS, including a summary of symptoms and functional impairments. A discussion of potential causes and risk factors is presented, followed by a critical analysis of various assessment tools and tests used to evaluate an individual for CTS. Finally, the evidence for various preventive and rehabilitative interventions is reviewed with a focus on rehabilitative interventions. By gaining a better understanding of the complexities of CTS, practitioners will be able to formulate more effective and efficient evidence-based interventions for clients with CTS.
