Most patients may have been affected by some sort of trauma to the hand or upper extremity; however, treatment also can include chronic conditions of the upper extremity such as:
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Cubital Tunnel
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Arthritis
Similar to physical therapists, our hand therapists complete a detailed evaluation process and set up a treatment plan to focus on getting patients back to doing the activities they love! Treatment approaches frequently include modalities, manual therapy, therapeutic exercises, education, and tailored home programs when appropriate.
