PIPJ Anatomy and Biomechanics

This online course covers detailed anatomy of the PIP joint, exploring how the anatomy applies to the biomechanics of the PIP joint and the movement of the fingers

 

Cost £28

Video run time 41 minutes plus activity time

Course aimed at Hand Therapists, Occupational therapists, Physiotherapists, Surgeons and physicians working in the field of hand pathologies

Course Description The PIPJ is a small joint with complex digital anatomy and therefore complex mechanics of movement. It is a joint that is commonly injured as well as affected by acquired conditions such as arthritis. We all know that PIPJ’s are challenging to treat and often remain stiff, painful and limited in range of motion after injury. An understanding of the details of the bony, tendonous and ligamentous anatomy will enable therapists and doctors to assess and treat this difficult joint in a specific and more effective manner.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this module the health professional will be able to:

  • Gain information on the basic functional anatomy of the hand
  • Understand the function of the PIPJ in a variety of grips and grip patterns
  • Demonstrate a detailed knowledge of the anatomy of
    • Bone and joint
    • Ligaments
    • Muscle and tendon – intrinsic and extrinsic
  • Use the anatomy workbooks to test and confirm your knowledge of the anatomy

Understand the functions of the interossei and lumbricals in normal movement and grips.

Pre-requisites None
