Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

This ongoing interpretive descriptive study explores hand therapists’ perspectives and practice patterns relative to upper-extremity pain. As per preliminary findings, participants emphasized biological contributions to pain but also acknowledged psychological influences and articulated a functional approach. The findings highlight the need for additional discussion of the value and role of biopsychosocial approaches to pain that extend beyond chronic low-back pain to the upper extremity.
