Discovering Dupuytren’s Disease
Like everything else, knowing the anatomy makes everything else easier. Learn about bands and cords as well as the impact each cord has on the function and mobility of the hand and digits.
We’ll show you how to fabricate 2 different splints. One for a standard approach and another for an approach when there is prolonged PIP flexion contracture with attenuated central slip. We also provide printable How-to guides.
Each treatment approach is based on the patient’s needs and presentation at the time of the evaluation. Is Conservative therapy an appropriate method for treatment? Do you know how to splint and treat following each version? How much pressure on a static or static progressive orthosis is right? We’ll cover all of this in the treatment guidelines we provide.
This course will cover everything you need to know about Dupuytren’s Disease. We’ll cover anatomy, treatment, orthosis fabrication, our clinical preferences and so much more. As always, we include a packed ebook with tons of resources and great anatomy images.
Understand the difference between bands and cords and how each cord can affect patient function.
Treatment can be simple and quick, but long standing PIP contractures can lead to more involved therapy to overcome an attenuated central slip.
A more accurate approach, this can allow for a quick return to function, but know what risks to the neurovascular bundle and splinting needs.
A more involved process with longer therapy afterwards, learn the splinting and therapy approach to this method.
We talk about some of our preferences and what we would prefer if we were choosing for ourselves.
How-to videos and instructional handouts for 2 different common orthoses for this diagnosis.
