This seminar addresses all aspects of conservative and surgical management of Obstetrical Brachial Plexus Injury over the course of infancy, childhood, and teen years.
The number of infants with OBPI has been increasing posing new challenges to therapists working with this population. Participants in this seminar will be presented with a detailed overview of the anatomy of the initial nerve injury and the muscular and bony sequelae that often results in lifelong neuromuscular and orthopedic challenges.
Participants will gain a detailed understanding of surgical interventions, non-surgical medical interventions, and radiological tests enabling them to make appropriate medical referrals. Participants will learn comprehensive examination and intervention strategies for each stage of recovery throughout infancy, childhood, and teen years.
This lecture-based course includes video taped demonstrations of specific examination tools and intervention strategies including traditional interventions as well as the use of state-of-the art technology. Strategies for family support and intervention will be discussed as well.Click here for more RehabEd and Pediatric CE courses.
