[MTSG] 2-day Workshop on Advanced Differential Diagnosis and Management of Elbow Pain

Course Descriptions

Elbow pain often presents a diagnostic dilemma. Intra-articular pathologies, local soft tissues and neural structures may be primary sources of nociception, with psychosocial and environmental factors contributing to symptom severity and chronicity. This course will collectively present assessment, differential diagnosis, and management of chronic elbow conditions. The aim of this course is to provide clinicians with an opportunity to improve their knowledge and skills relevant to client-centered assessment and treatment in this field. Understanding the contribution of local tissue pathology, and sensory and motor system impairments to the individual’s clinical presentation of arm pain will assist clinicians in implementing an effective treatment program. This course will comprehensively review the underlying mechanisms and pathophysiology, differential diagnosis, assessments, and management of chronic elbow pain. This course is tailor-made for clinicians with clinical experience in musculoskeletal and sports injuries, interested in updating their knowledge and improving their skills in the management of elbow injuries and dysfunction.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to :

  1. Understand important anatomical and biomechanical relationships, particularly related to elbow function and mechanisms of injury
  2. Demonstrate applied knowledge of the latest evidence regarding aetiology, differential diagnoses, and predictors of recovery in people with elbow pain
  3. Perform skilled assessment techniques relevant to intra-articular pathology, instability, tendinopathy and peripheral nerve entrapment at the elbow
  4. Apply the evidence to clinical reasoning for the management of elbow injuries (conservative, injection, surgical)
  5. Demonstrate refined manual therapy, neurodynamic and exercise prescription skills for the assessment and management of elbow pain
