Hand Therapy

Help for Arm, Hand and Wrist Pain

therapist massaging handReaching, grabbing, writing, and pinching are simple activities that many of us take for granted. However, for individuals suffering from issues or injury affecting the hand, wrist and arm, these simple tasks can be monumental. The inability to perform such tasks independently is frustrating and debilitating.

Through assessment, exercise, splinting, and overall education for adapting the manner in which these tasks are approached, many of these difficulties can be eased with the help of a Hand Therapist.
