Extreme Sports Injuries: Extremity Trauma (v2)

Course overview

This program reviews pain management, splinting, and the various techniques used to stabilize an extremity. Instructs on how to look for and anticipate other injuries in the “predictive” assessment and thereby avoiding the distraction of the obvious injury.

Many of the injuries sustained while participating in these sports are usually not life threatening; however, they are painful. The anatomy and physiology of the shoulder are reviewed. The focus is on upper extremity trauma and treating PSDE – painful, swollen, deformed extremities.
