What will this session cover?

Disorders of the upper limb are common in general practice. For these disorders, morbidity surveys in primary care found an annual incidence of first consultation of approximately 25 per 1000 person years, with rates increasing from 25 to 45 years of age. This webinar will take you through the most common musculoskeletal problems that may affect the upper limb and their management. Topics covered will include the patient presenting with “pins and needles” in the upper limb, tendinopathy / tenosynovitis and overuse conditions. This webinar will also cover differentiating soft tissue problems from early inflammatory arthritis.
