Proximal interphalangeal joint (PIPJ)

This course teaches the detailled anatomy of the PIPJ and its’ interaction with the joints distal and proximal to it.  The biomechanics are explained and common conditions are covered.  There is a strong emphasis on clinical reasoning for treatment of the problem PIPJ including management of stiffness, alternative splinting strategies and the merits of surgery.  By the end of the three days, therapists should feel confident in their diagnostic skills, knowledge and practical application of therapy.  As with all NES Level II courses, all teaching is evidence based.
