Orthology’s certified hand therapists offers hand and upper extremity rehabilitation to provide treatment when an injury or medical condition results in pain or diminished functionality. As we rely on our hands and arms for almost everything we do, our services combine a wide variety of techniques designed to restore function, range of motion, flexibility, resolve injury, and alleviate pain. When an injury or chronic condition affects our ability to use our hands or upper extremities, our quality of life is severely impacted. We realize very quickly how key this part of the anatomy is to our daily lives. Successful treatments help our patients move more and learn healthy habits that will help them live better.
Our hand and upper extremity therapy program’s primary goal is to maximize functional recovery for self-care, work, and leisure activities. Our hand therapy evaluation process focuses on the psychosocial, biomechanics, environmental factors, and daily living activities, which often influence rehabilitation outcomes. Following a comprehensive evaluation and functional assessment, each patient is provided with a personalized treatment plan. Our treatments are individualized for each patient in order to address the patient’s unique needs, limitations, and goals. Each program combines therapeutic exercise to improve strength and mobility, with various techniques and modalities aimed at diminishing pain and restoring function.
Our certified hand therapists utilize creative medical interventions such as the design and fabrication of splints, ergonomic principles, manual therapy, medical taping, and biofeedback techniques from a practical perspective. We go beyond addressing upper extremity injuries to ensure direct focus on the patient’s functional needs. Our hand therapists work closely with surgeons and treating physicians to provide the most favorable rehabilitation outcomes.
