It resulted to an increasing prevalence of upper extremity dysfunctions. Currently there is an increased need for a specialized therapy and comprehensive approach to address these upper extremity disorders. As defined by the Australian Hand Therapy Association, Inc. (AHTA), Hand Therapy is the art and science of rehabilitation of the upper limb - shoulder to hand. It involves evaluation and testing to assess the injured limb from which a specific treatment program can be designed. A variety of specialized treatment techniques are used to achieve these goals. A certified hand therapist is a registered Occupational Therapists and Physical Therapist who, through further education, clinical experience and independent study have become proficient in the treatment of upper limb conditions resulting from injury, disease or deformity. This course will pave the way to the establishment of Philippine Association of Hand Therapists (PAHT) which in turn will produce fellows in Hand Therapy. GENERAL COURSE OBJECTIVE The general objective of this course is to present the modern hand therapy approaches to upper extremity rehabilitation using the valid, reliable, evidence-based and technological advance assessment tools and interventions. SPECIFIC COURSE OBJECTIVES At the end of this course, the participants will be able: • To determine the prevalence of upper extremity injuries in the Philippines. • To understand and appreciate the importance of establishing Hand therapy in the Philippines. • To have an understanding of the cause of the common upper extremity dysfunction • To learn the process of diagnosing common upper extremity dysfunctions • To understand the prognosis of the different upper extremity dysfunctions • To discuss knowledge on the surgical and non-surgical interventions done by physicians • To apply the standard protocol for rehabilitation of the different upper extremity cases after surgery • To discuss the basic pathomechanics of TOS • To correlate the association of TOS to the different upper extremity pain disorders • To integrate basic fascial manipulation in the management of upper extremity pain disorders. • To recognize significance of integrative functional training using the Rejoyce upper extremity workstation.
