Course Reviews

No nonsense, down to earth course for PTs. This is one of the best I have ever taken. No unnecessary academic posturing. You find the answers to most pertaining questions concerning patients with wrist fracture. I would like to encourage the author to produce many more like this one. Thanks. MWM, Ellicott City, MD

This is probably the most concise, best written course I have taken from your company. Loved it! Very clinically practical!

I really appreciated the "therapist tips" sections and the examples of exercises to use in the clinic as well as the review of the examination portion of our treatment.

This was a good review of basics and reminder of classification systems. Could have used clinical examples to demonstrate progression of fracture rehab. Overall, very good.

good refresher for a retiree!

Very in-depth information that was easy to follow and understand. I have been treating wrist fractures for a long time but I learned some new information. I like the "Therapist Tips" sections too!

It was a very good overall review for me.
