Module D

COURSE DESCRIPTION

3 days hands on workshop covering recapitulation of functional assessment of Shoulder, elbow and wrist, Diagnosis and differential diagnosis of those joints, interpretation of active, passive and resisted test, advance treatment techniques for inert structures and contractile structures, and intra articular Injections and infiltration techniques where necessary. ETGOM standardized assessment form would be described in detailed with guideline to complete the form to conclude with a valid diagnosis.

In this module Musculoskeletal Ultrasound would be used to determine the soft tissue structures during diagnosis and differential diagnosis and also would be used to guide the injection protocol.
