Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

Musculoskeletal disorders, including the elbow, wrist, and hand, are very common disabilities worldwide. Patients who experience elbow, wrist, and hand musculoskeletal pain are frequently seen in outpatient therapy. Using a sample of 89,422 patients from 3,400 outpatient clinics, this session will identify immutable and mutable factors that are the best predictors of a high functional recovery.
