Use Certified Hand Therapy For:
- Carpal Tunnel – Caused by a pinched nerve in the wrist, you may find yourself suffering from the tingling and numbness of this very common, medium-term condition.
- Trigger Finger – This tendon defect causes the finger to snap straight or jerk when the hand extends.
- Chronic Hand Conditions – Common problems include numbness, loss of motion, pain, or unexplained hand masses.
- Sensory Re-education – Commonly required after one suffers a stroke, sensory re-education is an attempt to re-train or stimulate neurological pathways.
- Desensitization – Desensitization slowly integrates stimulation to the area that over time may have become hypersensitive because of the increase or spread of pain.
- Splinting (custom and prefabricated) – Used for keeping an injured body part in place so that it can heal. Commonly used for broken bones, sprains and post-surgery.
- Post-Surgical Rehab – Post-operative and pain management care for those who have recently undergone a surgical procedure.
- Repetitive Strain Injuries – Relief for pain/tenderness, cramping, stiffness, and tingling/numbness caused by overusing a part of your body. Doing a repeated physical activity without rest or working in a poor posture position are a couple of common causes.
- Tennis Elbow and Golfer’s Elbow – This tendonitis of the elbow can hold back tennis and golfers not just from a favorite activity, but from daily life.
