What is Hand Therapy & Rehabilitation?

Hand Therapy & Rehabilitation is a specialized branch of physiotherapy that focuses on the evaluation and treatment of conditions affecting the hand, wrist, and upper extremity. Our hand therapists are highly trained in assessing and managing a wide range of hand-related issues, including fractures, sprains, tendon injuries, nerve compressions, arthritis, and post-surgical rehabilitation. We employ evidence-based techniques and customized treatment plans to optimize hand function and facilitate recovery.

Expertise and Specialized Care

Our team of hand therapists possesses extensive knowledge and expertise in Hand Therapy & Rehabilitation. They have undergone specialized training and have a deep understanding of the intricate anatomy and biomechanics of the hand. With their advanced skills, they provide individualized care, utilizing a combination of manual therapy techniques, therapeutic exercises, custom splinting, and functional retraining to address specific hand conditions and promote optimal healing and recovery.

Comprehensive Treatment Approach

We take a comprehensive approach to hand rehabilitation, addressing not only the affected hand but also the surrounding structures and overall upper limb function. Our hand therapists conduct detailed assessments to evaluate hand strength, range of motion, sensation, coordination, and functional abilities. Based on the assessment findings and your treatment goals, we develop personalized treatment plans that may include exercises to improve strength and dexterity, manual therapy techniques to enhance joint mobility, modalities to reduce pain and inflammation, and splinting to support proper alignment and protection during the healing process.

Patient-Centered Care

Your needs and goals are at the center of our care. We believe in fostering a collaborative and supportive environment where you are actively involved in your rehabilitation journey. Our hand therapists provide education on self-management techniques, ergonomic modifications, and strategies to prevent future injuries. We prioritize open communication and work closely with you to develop realistic treatment goals and track your progress throughout the rehabilitation process.
