This course is geared toward the intermediate to advanced level practitioner and will provide exceptional hands-on learning about flexor and extensor tendon rehabilitation. During the morning session the course will cover extensor tendon anatomy and physiology, history and current evidence of extensor tendon repairs and rehabilitation, and a lab breakout session for fabrication of a Relative Motion Extension Splint (RMES). In the afternoon session, flexor tendon anatomy and physiology, history and current evidence of flexor tendon repairs and rehabilitation, and emerging evidence in flexor tendon repairs including “Proof-of-Concept” will be discussed. During a second lab session, participants will have the opportunity to fabricate a Relative Motion Flexion Splint (RMFS) and discuss tips for dorsal blocking orthoses. Understanding the various approaches to tendon repair rehabilitation is complex and challenging – this course aims to present the latest and greatest evidence, including clinical pearls for digital nerve involvement, scar management, and cortical re-patterning. Learners will confidently splint and rehabilitate the most challenging of tendon repairs with knowledge of the latest trends in research. This is a course you will not want to miss!!
