How do you decide which tests to conduct and what kind of treatment plan to develop from patient to patient? This may sound obvious, but bears repeating: really knowing our anatomy plays a huge role in effective clinical reasoning.

In the video below, NAIOMT's Stacy Soappman discusses a violinist she saw last month who was experiencing numbness and tingling in his left fourth and fifth finger.  She addresses how taking a hard look at upper extremity anatomy helped her in assessing and treating the patient.  

If you're looking to take your own clinical reasoning skills to the next level this year, browse our 2019 schedule and join us for an upcoming Upper Extremity course:
