The upper extremity is a prime location for disorders related to peripheral nerves. This course will review the anatomy of peripheral, median and ulnar nerves and how they are related to disorders like carpal tunnel and pronator teres syndrome. Through the use of a patient case, learn about integrated clinical reasoning for patients with upper extremity Peripheral Nerve Entrapments and the management of patients with upper extremity peripheral nerve entrapments.
