Clinical Pattern Recognition (CPR): Wrist and Hand Pain • A powerful comprehensive app linking research to clinical practice • Used in Residency and Fellowship training • Used by some of the top programs in the United States • Guideline based classification system for elbow pain • Intuitive user interface that mimics the clinical reasoning of a master clinician • Common pain referral patterns link to common hypotheses including: - Post traumatic/immobilization wrist stiffness - Carpal tunnel syndrome - Guyon’s canal syndrome - Wrist sprain - Thumb sprain (ulnar collateral ligament sprain) - Triangular fibrocartilaginous complex tear (TFCC) - Thumb arthritis • Hypothesized conditions link to their specific key findings and faulty movements • Evidence based impairments are linked to their associated “ideal” interventions including: - Manual therapy - Movement re-education - Therapeutic exercises - Modalities - Patient education • Includes region specific red flag conditions for emergent referral
• Over 200 examination, movement analysis, manual therapy and exercise videos/pictures • Assessment for “Signs of central sensitization” for specific conditions prone to chronic pain • Multi-angle, High definition video with instructions • Videos of how patients will present in the clinic • Clinical reasoning videos for key findings, differential diagnosis, associated impairments, interventions • Direct links to PUBmed abstracts for all techniques (where research is available) • Use clinical pattern recognition to develop your clinical reasoning “flow” or have quick access to all special tests/physical exam techniques, all manual therapy techniques or all exercise techniques Audience: • Physical therapists/Physiotherapists • Physical therapy assistants • Osteopathic physicians • Athletic trainers • Clinicians managing patients with musculoskeletal conditions • Medical professionals • Educators • Chiropractors • Anyone interested in rehabilitation for wrist and hand pain *This app may require you to be temporarily connected to wifi for downloading.
