When you’re working with upper extremity patients, sometimes progress can feel like an uphill battle.
Many patients have difficulty describing upper extremity symptoms, so localizing the problem can be a challenge. Scar tissue and edema often limit tissue gliding so much that it interferes with exercises and functional tasks. And when standard treatment protocols fall short of expectations, this can leave your patients frustrated, pained by activities that give them purpose, and resigned to surgical options.
But with the latest advances in upper extremity rehabilitation, helping your patients achieve their functional goals is easier than ever.

Revolutionize your therapy toolbox with innovative interventions you can use immediately to accelerate progress. And design advanced plans of care for a variety of common upper extremity diagnoses, fluently combining techniques for optimal outcomes.
