Hand Therapy and Splinting

 

Hand therapists are experts in treating conditions that affect the hand, wrist, and arm. These include injuries or conditions caused by accidents, trauma, overuse, and disease that have led to pain, sprains, wounds, scars, burns, injured tendons or nerves, fractures, carpal tunnel, arthritis or even amputation. 

 

What would I see a hand therapist for?

You may want to seek hand therapy if you have or are recovering from: 

  • Pain, tenderness, tingling or numbness in your hand, fingers, joints, wrist, and elbow, either at rest or when in use.  

  • Stiffness, clicking, catching or creaking of your joints. 

  • Weakness in your fingers, hand, wrist, forearm, elbow or upper arm. 

  • Issues with grip strength, or a decreased ability to use your arm, elbow, wrist, hand or fingers. 

  • After an injury or surgery to the elbow, wrist or hand.

 

Our hand specialists will often incorporate the use of splinting into therapy to help reduce pain, restore function, and prevent future pain.
