Does your body no longer want to cooperate with your mind due to illness, injury, and arthritis or muscle stiffness? It can be frustrating when you want to be able to move freely – without limits or pain. And when you can’t, hand therapists help get you back to full strength and moving again.
Hand therapists diagnose, manage and treat a broad range of injuries and conditions. Utilizing a variety of medical equipment and modalities, as well as manual skills, the primary goals of physical therapy include reducing pain, restoring mobility and improving overall functional levels.
There are many specialty areas within physical therapy, such as Orthopedics, Sports Medicine, Geriatrics, Pediatrics, Neurology and Cardiovascular & Pulmonary Rehabilitation.
