Care For The Active Wrist – 582

Dr. Candice Teunis joins Shawn Ready to discuss care for the active wrist.

Can't Miss Injuries of the Hand; care for the active wrist

How do we Care For The Active Wrist

One of the huge tips she continued to share was REFER ANYTHING YOU REDUCE!!!

I have reduced injuries before and since meeting Dr. Teunis I always refer them to get an x-ray before allowing them to return to play.

Mallet Finger:

What is it: Extensor tendon rupture or avulsion involving DP joint.

Treatment– Splint religiously! 6-10 weeks

Alumaform vs. Stax Splint- Not all 1 size fits all. consult with your local hand doctor to see what they prefer and why. discuss ways to ensure patient compliance and seamless transition from office to AT Facility.

NOT ALL Mallet Fingers can be splinted, some require surgical intervention.

Jersey Finger-

What is it – Flexed finger pulled into extension (commonly ring finger, 75%) rupturing flexor tendon.



Dorsal Dislocation-  splint 1 week, then buddy tape

Volar dislocation – much less common, extensor mechanism disruption, hard to reduce


  • Traumatic Boutonniere
  • Skiers Thumb

Scaphoid Fractures

  • Hard to treat
  • hard to diagnose.
  • Common in football – “see these in December”

Scaphoid fractures…about 40% are missed and that is bad news, they take several months to heal due to poor blood flow. if it dies you get arthritis in your 20s.

Mobile Sports Medicine Units with Keith Shireman – 427

Keith Shireman, AT for Batesville Pioneers in Arkansas was the recipient of close to $70,000 worth of Mobile Sports Medicine Unit donations.  He has a 28 foot “bumper pull” trailer and a new truck to pull it with.

Alternative Exercises for those who Cannot – 355

We all have that kid who either wants to work really hard and just can't do to injury or that wants to use the injury as a reason to be lazy.  We are also faced with man power issues in that if we cannot babysit those the whole time.  Athletic Trainers need to have a list of exercises to pull from knowing we will not cause harm to the injured site.

Bob Marley is CSCS, works with the Houston Texans, at my Alma Mater Houston Baptist University, East Bernard High School and has 35 years experience.

Shawn Ready is a former Collegiate Athletic Trainer and Cross Fit coach.

Bubba Wilson has lots of experience and is an expert in all things

Tech Tools for the Athletic Trainer – 328

MedBridge: is great for continuing education on a budget and a resource to build a great home exercise plan

Using Google drive makes sharing documents and data between co-workers super easy.  It has also saved me from having to carry a flash drive around or from being able to work from only one computer.

We also Use RankOneSport for our online physical forms, treatment logs and injury report forms which has been a huge time-saver.  this also has the emergency cards for the coaches to print and manage their own paperwork.

MX Weather Sentry for lightning alerts – makes arguing about LIGHTNING a moot point

Secondary School Facebook Group – get questions answered, gain understanding, vent among like-minded people

Rhabdomyolysis from a Patient Perspective – 319

Carmen Solis caught the perfect storm of plane flight, elevation, dehydration, new protein shake, different environment and a slightly new routine to catch a case of Rhabdo.

Dr. Rehal Bhojani explains the facts as he sees them and gives great insight to us in identifying future cases of Rhabdo.

Urine color charts in every stall (male and female) are a top recommendation.  Muddy / orange urine is almost always an indicator of Rhabdo.

Help prevent Rhabdo by easing your athletes back into workouts.  Gone is the idea of “we are going to kill them and make men out of them.”
