Anicia Baron is an Occupational Therapist and a hand specialist based at Pulvertaft Hand Centre within the Royal Derby Hospital. In this webinar Anicia will be presenting a patient case study on a proximal interphalangeal joint (PIPJ) contracture following a flexor tendon repair. Anicia has adopted a range of treatment methods throughout her career to treat specific hand injuries including static splinting and IASTM.
We will have a 20-minute presentation from Anicia following an interactive Q&A session.
The presentation will include:
– Patient background
– Anatomy of the PIPJ
Injury to the hand resulting in a contracture can lead to many problems. This type of injury can interfere with the functional use of the hand so treatment can be vital. Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation (IASTM) is an effective manual therapy treatment that can be used to treat a range of soft tissue injuries to the hand. Establishing the best treatment approach and having a range of treatment options for specific injuries can be vital in rehabilitation.
