Management of Upper Extremity Disorders

Course Description: EIM’s Management of Upper Extremity Disorders 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.



Course Objectives:

Course participants upon completion will be able to:

  • Identify and perform key elements of an upper extremity subjective and objective clinical examination, with particular emphasis on a cervical and thoracic spine screening exam and upper extremity active and passive motion testing with overpressure and special tests.
  • Synthesize and analyze data from the upper quarter clinical examination based on signs and symptoms, diagnostic clusters, and treatment-based classifications.
  • Determine a diagnosis and/or impairments and use sound clinical reasoning and current best evidence to guide patient/client management.
  • Engage in the diagnostic process to establish differential diagnoses across systems & across the life span.
  • Utilize a consistent clinical process to effectively screen for systemic disease and non-musculoskeletal pathology in patients with lower quarter pain.
  • Justify the selection of manual therapy techniques or integrated exercise using clinical reasoning and application of current best evidence.
  • Perform selected manipulation and mobilization techniques in patients with upper quarter pain or dysfunction.
  • Most importantly – be able to apply this stuff to your clinical practice next week!
