Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This study identified the most prevalent wrist conditions by injury, type, and diagnosis for US service members. The results support the need for prevention efforts based on the most prevalent wrist conditions. The type of injury and diagnosis play a major role in treatment planning, which determines the length of treatment. Lastly, the study highlights the importance of consistent documentation and standard assessment completion for an accurate depiction of the effectiveness of OT treatment.
