    The course on Joint stiffness: tips,tricks and trivia was helpful. Provided good and useful information.
    The tips were handy and easy to implement in the clinic. The splints were interesting too, although some of the pictures were difficult to see how the splints were made.
    I enjoyed the DVD and learned several new techniques to attempt end range DIP flexion. I only disagree on one of the test questions regarding pushing up from a chair or couch with palm down. I do not believe it is possible to attain a stretch to the extrinsic flexors while you are contracting them to assit with pushing off of the chair. If you were resting in that position and stretching I then would agree. I will take future coarses from your products. Thank you, Jonathan
