Spalken van de hand: Theorie en Praktijk


Binnen de handrevalidatie is het niet meer mogelijk om het gebruik van spalken weg te denken. Een eenvoudige ondersteunende tape is vaak onvoldoende, onhygiënisch en niet duurzaam. Verschillende letsels aan de hand hebben nood aan een kleine en eenvoudige spalk. Door het goed begrijpen van het onderliggende mechanisme van de pathologie en de biomechanische vereisten van de hand of vinger kan een correcte en op maat gemaakte spalk voorzien worden. Dit bevorderd het herstelproces. In deze cursus  zullen voor verschillende courante aandoeningen eenvoudige spalken aangeleerd worden. 

Deze cursus is alleen toegankelijk voor handtherapeuten,  ergo -en kinesitherapeuten die zich aan het specialiseren zijn in handrevalidatie.

Hand and wrist injuries in the athlete are commonly sports specific. It takes a split second for a game-changing injury to occur and perhaps months to recover from the injury. Equipment can be part of the solution or the problem. Whether injured in a sports-related or non–sports-related activity, the goal for patient athletes remains the same: to return them to their previous level of function. Often, a specific competitive opportunity is only available for a set period of time; for example, a college basketball player’s limited collegiate career adding further time-sensitive pressures to the health care providers. Therapy goals are derived from conversations with the patient, taking time to understand what is important to that patient and guide him or her through the stages of recovery with realistic expectations. A solid comprehension and activity analysis of the movements, stability, impact, and strength needed to return to a specific sport is necessary to be effective. Adhering to the gold standards of care begins the process of moving the person from being a patient to being an athlete back in the game. Although some injuries seem frivolous in comparison with other types of injuries in patients seen by upper extremity specialists, the impact on athletic performance

Injuries to the extensor tendons of the hand can cause significant deformity and disability in some cases, and in others can be relatively well tolerated. The anatomy of the extensor tendons is quite intricate and an intimate knowledge is essential for diagnosis and treatment. Unique to extensor tendon avulsion injuries, deformity and disability may be initially minimized or ignored by athletes so that late presentation is not uncommon. Many acute injuries can be treated conservatively and often in a way that allows continued sports participation. Once a chronic deformity develops, treatment options become more complex and less predictable. More chronic injuries, such as sagittal band attrition, may have greater impact on certain activities and definitive treatment is necessary to even continue sport participation. This article discusses the diagnosis, management, and definitive treatment of mallet, boutonniere, and sagittal band injuries in athletes. Basic Anatomy The distal aspect of the upper extremity digits represents a complex confluence of tendons, ligaments, and bone. The basic musculature of the hand and digits can be broken down into two categories: extrinsic and intrinsic musculature.
