This programme will give you a complete overview of the rehabilitation of this common wrist fracture.
The distal fracture of the radius is the most common fracture of the wrist and so is regularly seen by clinicians. Where this injury is sufficiently severe it is treated with surgery involving open reduction internal fixation (ORIF). Due to the many types and severity of fractures observed and the variety of treatment techniques utilised the clinician needs to have a deep understanding of the related conditions and versatility in their treatment options. This programme of courses addresses these needs in a comprehensive examination of the physiotherapy management of distal radius fractures following open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) surgery.
The course content has been created by Kate Thorn, a certified hand therapist from Australaia.
