Format:  45 minutes presentation, 15 minutes Q&A 

Webinar Description:
The age-old question that has haunted therapists for decades -- what do you do with a stiff elbow? The elbow joint consists of three joints: the humeroulnar joint, humeroradial joint and proximal radioulnar joint. Stiffness at the elbow capsule as a result of trauma or immobilization can create limitations with both elbow flexion and extension, as well as forearm rotation. Join us for this webinar, which focuses on manual techniques you can readily apply in the clinic to maximize motion at the elbow and forearm to optimize your patient outcomes. 

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this course, participants will:

  1. Identify key anatomic structures at the humeroulnar joint (HUJ) and proximal radioulnar joint (PRUJ) to determine the direction of traction and/or glide as a precursor to initiating joint mobilization
  2. Implement traction techniques for the HUJ to maximize elbow flexion and extension
  3. Perform medial and lateral gliding techniques for the HUJ to further enhance the elbow arc of motion
  4. Demonstrate joint mobilization techniques for the PRUJ to address limitations with forearm pronation and supination
  5. Explain the home program patients can perform to maximize forearm motion with neuromuscular re-education at the PRUJ 

Attendees earn 1.0 contact hour or 0.10 CEUs
