Abstract

In an attempt to decrease pain and increase function in patients with CMC OA, these authors have described the combination of two techniques that can be performed to treat this common problem. Before applying the techniques, each therapist must determine if the application of the technique falls within their scope of practice. - KristinValdes, OTD, OT, CHT, Practice Forum Editor.
