Course Description
This instructional course, presented in a DVD format, is designed to assist occupational therapy practitioners in understanding and treating cumulative trauma disorders (CTDs). Using an occupation-based approach, the anatomical considerations, soft tissue pathology, related neuroanotomy, and the biomechanics related to CTDs are presented. Also presented are common and uncommon CTDs from the shoulder to the finger. The DVD includes a 117-page full-color manual and frequently asked questions, photos, PowerPoint slides, and references.

Course content includes the discussion and demonstration of the following:

SECTION 1: Introduction
Chapter 1: Biophysocial Approach to Management

SECTION 2: Biology of Soft Tissue Pain
Chapter 2: Tendonitis & Tendonopathies—tendon anatomy and biomechanics
Chapter 3: Shoulder—tendon issues of the shoulder (Impingement syndrome, Rotator Cuff tears, Biceps tendonitis)
Chapter 4: Sports Elbow
Chapter 5: Medial and lateral Epicondylitis—tendon and ligament issues of the elbow  
Chapter 6: Hand and Wrist
Chapter 7: Treatment of the Hand and Wrist—wrist and hand tendon issues (DeQuervain's, ECU tendonitis, Intersection syndrome, Trigger Finger)

SECTION 3: Nerve Compression Syndromes
Chapter 8: Anatomy and Neurophysiology of the Peripheral Nerve—neuroanatomy and biomechanics
Chapter 9: Proximal Nerve Compressions—Suprascapular Nerve compression, Quadrilateral space syndrome
Chapter 10: Median Nerve—median nerve compressions (Pronator syndrome, Anterior interosseous nerve syndrome, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome)
Chapter 11: Ulnar Nerve—ulnar nerve compressions (Cubital Tunnel Syndrome, Guyon's canal compression)
Chapter 12: Radial Nerve—radial nerve compressions (Radial Tunnel and RSN compression (Wartenberg's)
Chapter 13: Thoracic Outlet—Thoracic Outlet Syndrome assessment and treatment

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify pertinent anatomic structures relating to a variety of pathologies;
  • Recognize the clinical symptoms and signs of common and not so common CTDs;
  • Determine occupation-based rationale for therapy intervention for CTD;
  • Differentiate between tendonopathies and nerve pathologies;
  • Identify neuroanatomy and biomechanics involvement relating to CTD;
  • Determine appropriate therapy intervention for specific CTDs ; and
  • Recognize subtle differences in pathologies and treatment techniques
