Earn 6.0 hours of CE credit for intermediate and advanced learning.
Watch 12 videos (each 14-36 minutes long) on these upper extremity topics:
- 01 macro anatomy: brain to fingertips including sympathetic nervous system
- 02 micro anatomy, nerve biology, injury classification, healing
- 03 diagnostic testing: end organs, density, threshold, motor, EMG, imaging studies
- 04 laceration, repair, grafting, nerve transfers, neurotization
- 05 compression: cervical radiculitis, thoracic outlet syndrome
- 06 compression: median nerve: CTS, ainterior interosseous nerve palsy, pronator syndrome
- 07 compression: ulnar nerve: cubital tunnel syndrome, Guyon’s canal syndrome
- 08 compression: radial (RTS and Wartengerg’s), axillary, suprascapular nerves
- 09 tumors:, neuromas, glomus, neurilemoma, neurofibroma, hamartoma
- 10 numbness: peripheral neuropathy, diabetes, syphilis, leprosy, multiple sclerosis

The 12 presentations are expanded and updated versions of those that were given at the face-to-face sessions at the 2019 Doctors Demystify Upper Extremity Nerves to over 1000 OTs and PTs in 40+ cities.
Meet these objectives:
- describe the neuroanatomy from brain to fingertip.
- describe current concepts of peripheral nerve biology and healing.
- collect a good history & exam for common peripheral nerve conditions.
- educate patients regarding their condition and treatments.
- participate more effectively in the patients’ care.
- Professional issues: education; OT process: evaluation, intervention
