Course Description

This course is designed to improve a movement professional’s understanding of the structures of the hand, wrist and elbow. A large part of the course is devoted to understanding the anatomy and physiology of the hand and how this relates to how we work in the studio as a movement professional.

Course participants will gain a better understanding of how certain exercises relate to the upper limb and also provide participants with the capacity to critically analyse specific pathologies.

The pathologies and conditions explored include:

// De Quervain’s syndrome
// Lateral Epicondylitis (tennis elbow)
// Peripheral Neuropathy
// Arthritis including Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis
// Carpal tunnel syndrome

We also look at strategies for exercises and movements that will help facilitate recovery and minimise the risk of further injuries. We discuss strategies for working with people with wrist and elbow pain issues that can easily be implemented straight away in the studio. The lessons provide clear instructions on cueing in order to help teachers support their clients in a safe and supported way.

After this course, the student should be able to:

// identify the bones of the hand and forearm
// understand the functional role of the bones, the joints and their rhythm
// understand the role of the arches of the hands and ways to strengthen these muscles
// understand common pathologies of the hand and apply modifications to exercises to support hand function and minimise hand dysfunction
// use some simple exercises and techniques in class to ensure safe and appropriate use of the hands and wrists

Who is this course for

Any movement teachers wanting to expand their knowledge of the hand, wrist and elbow and its components. This can be a good introductory course to the anatomy and physiology of the upper limb, but also works as a refresher for teachers who would like to build their confidence in dealing with conditions in this area.
