Conservative Management of TFCC Injuries
Presented by Ann Porretto-Loehrke, PT, DPT, CHT, COMT, CMTPT
This 4-hour webinar will explore the clinical problem-solving involved with evaluating a patient with complaints of ulnar wrist pain and determining the optimal plan of care. Many TFCC injuries are a result of distal radius fractures. This course covers both the problem-solving when patients present with forearm rotation limitations as well as for those with isolated TFCC injuries without a limit in motion. Sharpen your skills with clinical testing and treatment for the ulnar side of the wrist!
