Cumulative Trauma Disorders: An Evidence-Based ApproachThis fantastic course will challenge your clinical skills. A licensed occupational therapist and certified hand therapist, Paul Bonzani is an extraordinary instructor, taking you from functional concepts and approaches to anatomical considerations, from soft tissue pathology to neuroanatomy and biomechanics. The course discusses common and not so common cumulative trauma disorders, or repetitive strain disorders, from the shoulder to the finger. The instructor follows an evidence- and occupation-based approach to quantify implementation for CTDs. A full-color manual is included with FAQs, photos, and more.Exploring Hand Therapy
