How does hand physical therapy work?
Hand therapy is specific to the upper extremities. My team and I want to help you to get back to your highest level of function. Through a combination of range of motion exercises, strength training, manual therapy, and more, you can start to recover from your injuries.
When will I see results from a hand therapy program?
Every person that walks through our doors will have a physical therapy plan that is created just for them. Depending on the injury and condition of your hand, you may find relief days to months from the start of treatment.
Are you having problems with your arm, wrist, elbow, or hand? This can be a very irritating issue to have because we use them for many of our daily activities. Until you get proper therapy and care for your injury you may not be able to complete the tasks that you need to.
Hand therapy can help you to regain as much function as possible after surgery or injury. A certified hand therapist will often start helping you right after your surgery or injury and will be with you until you regain function and can return to work and your daily activities.
