Therapy for hand, wrist and elbow injuries

Hand, Wrist and Elbow injuries

Hand, wrist and elbow injuries or pain are very common with recreational activities and even just normal daily tasks. Injuries and pain can range from minor sprains or strains to severe injuries such as fracture to even repetitive tasks over time. Pain can be noted from the ligaments, muscles, joints or even from joints unrelated to the area such as the shoulder or neck. Overuse injuries (Repetitive stress/strain syndrome) is very common amongst computer users, wait staff, grocers and hair stylists.

Physical therapy can be helpful by identifying the problem, modifying work stations and looking for other reasons for the dysfuncton. This allows the therapist to treat the causes while decreasing pain, and restoring your function.

Many times conservative care through physical therapy can prevent surgery especially for carpal tunnel syndrome.
