Cadaver Musculoskeletal Anatomy EMG/MSKUS Guided Injections, Dystonia and Spasticity
The educational needs of learners has grown as we recover from the pandemic. Learners have not had the opportunity for hands on cadaver training. Thus, combined virtual lectures bringing in outside speakers and in person cadaver lab with distinguished speakers will be arranged. Cadaver prosectional anatomy will be reviewed and injection skills check on cadavers will be carried out with learners.
This course will address both the educational gap for PMR residents and fellows to learn more about recognition and treatment of cervical dystonia and upper and lower limb spasticity with chemodenervation. An educational series is envisioned at this time to optimize their clinical educational experience.
This activity is intended for physical medicine and rehabilitation residents, fellows, faculty, and private practice physiatrists.
At the conclusion of the conference, participants should be able to:
· Describe the musculoskeletal anatomy of the neck, arm and leg as it relates to limb spasticity injection
· Describe two types of guided injections that can be used for spasticity/dystonia
· Describe suspension and injection strategies for botulinum toxin.
· Name and demonstrate how to inject at least two of the 8 new muscles FDA approved for spasticity injection
