Hand Therapy

Hand therapy is a multidisciplinary treatment including Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy. A variety of upper extremity conditions are treated including acute trauma (crush injuries, fractures, burns, lacerations, and tendon, ligament and nerve injuries), repetitive overuse injuries (carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis) and acquired conditions (arthritis, dupuytren's contracture).

Following detailed assessment, appropriate therapeutic intervention will be initiated. Treatment may include wound care, removal of sutures, scar management, active mobilization, strengthening programs and splinting when indicated. Communication with physicians and hand surgeons (as required following surgery) ensures safe progression of rehabilitation and optimal recovery.
