Elbow LCL Treatment
While it's a less common diagnosis in the world of hand therapy, you need to understand the unique anatomy, precautions and treatment guidelines for progressing the patient appropriately.
Starting with a solid evaluation that includes range of motion, strength, sensation as well as provocative tests and a full occupational profile. You should also educate the patient on the unique precautions and movements to avoid protecting the structures.
Then we get into treatment. Standard treatment guidelines for post operative and conservative guidelines for those who didn’t have surgery or have other complications.
Finally, we take you through 2 different splints. Video instructions with printable how-to guides are included. Whether it’s a muenster orthosis, or a posterior elbow that you’ll convert to a hinged elbow orthosis later, we show you how to make them faster with the stretch and tag method.
It may be an uncommon diagnosis, but it’s important to understand all of the factors that impact patient outcomes and return to work or sports. This course will take you from beginning to end for treatment of a patient with an elbow LCL injury.
Everything you need to guide your understanding, evaluation, and treatment for care of the patient with a flexor tendon injury is included in this course.

Whether you are fabricating a muenster, or posterior elbow orthosis, we include a demo video and printable handout for both.
