Extensor Tendon: Zone by Zone

Each extensor tendon zone is uniquely different and has its own anatomy, evaluation, treatment and orthosis considerations. In this course we go through each zone, individually, and cover everything you need to know about treating a patient with extensor injuries.

Extensor Tendon Zones

Each chapter includes a thorough explanation of anatomy with a treatment guideline and recommendations & demonstrations on orthosis fabrication and wear/care schedule. Protocol progression is included in a week-by-week manner with notes on return to function and independence.

Anatomy is also covered with a dynamic 3D model to help clear up the confusing anatomy of the extensor mechanism.
