About the Course
The Elbow course is designed to enhance the participant’s knowledge and skills in the evidence-based management of individuals with elbow disorders and dysfunction. The course focuses on clinical reasoning via case presentations and hands-on skill development necessary to effectively perform a comprehensive elbow evaluation with an understanding of how the elbow is of vital importance in upper limb function. Participants will learn and receive hands-on practice of evidence-based treatments including joint mobilizations, taping, strength progression and exercises.
