This course is designed to enhance the participant’s knowledge and skill level in the evidence-based management of individuals with upper extremity disorders and dysfunction. This lab intensive course focuses on the clinical reasoning and hands-on skill development necessary to effectively integrate manual physical therapy examination and intervention techniques into the clinical management of these individuals. Classification systems, outcomes assessment tools, and the application of diagnostic imaging are discussed as components of the diagnostic process within the framework of evidence-based practice. Participants will receive hands-on demonstration and practice of both examination and selected interventions of upper extremity.
Virtual Labs Experiences combine online, self-paced coursework with weekly live, synchronous sessions and practice video submissions.

The WI course was a game changer in my practice. I have been able to apply the techniques we learned everyday since the course, and patient's have noticed a difference
As an OT, I will use the information at the course as one approach to helping patients back to returning to their occupational roles as I combine these strategies with occupational tasks in the clinic.
