Hand Therapy is a type of rehabilitation performed by an occupational or physical therapist on patients with conditions affecting the upper extremities, including arms, hands, elbows, and shoulders.
This service rehabilitates patients who have experienced trauma to their hand or forearm, whether from an injury, an illness, or after surgery. The therapists also work closely with the plastic surgery and orthopedic surgeons to rehabilitate patients after any hand surgery, and to treat patients who have long standing rheumatologic conditions.
A Hand Therapy program for a patient begins with a thorough analysis of hand function, edema, scars, joint range, strength, and dexterity. We will then create a therapy program to help restore maximum hand function.
Your physical therapist may include one or more of the following options:
Our team takes great pride in their work, and uses a variety of specialist skills to allow people to return to optimum function in their hand, wrist, and arm in their daily lives.
In our clinics, we employ both occupational and physical therapists who work closely together as a team. Occupational Therapists help patients improve their ability to perform tasks in their living and working environments. Physical Therapists provide services that help restore function, improve mobility, and prevent or limit permanent physical disability of patients suffering from injury or disease.
Patients (both adults and children) are often referred to us immediately after surgery by hospitals, plastic surgeons, or hand trauma and elective surgery clinics. These patients are followed up as appropriate. Contact us for more information at 2036999264.
