Hand, Wrist and Elbow Pain
The hand, wrist, and elbow are very complex, requiring special attention. If you suffer from an injury, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, or other painful conditions of the hand, wrist or elbow, we can help.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
If you suffer from tingling or numbness to the thumb and first two fingers or have pain in this area, you may have carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a collection of symptoms that affects people of all ages, but occurs more in women between the ages of 30-64 years old. In addition, women who are pregnant often suffer with CTS. If you type, write, or do repetitive lifting or gripping throughout the day you are at greater risk for developing CTS.
The good news is that our expert physical therapists have years of experience and training treating people with CTS. There are several therapeutic options for quickly relieving your symptoms and reducing the inflammation. In addition, for long-term results our therapists know the right techniques to show you how to prevent re-injury. For more information on our specialized programs, call us today to find out how we can help you live pain free.
Recovery After Injury
Whether you suffered a sprained wrist or you’re recovering from a severe fracture, our skilled physical therapists are here to quickly get you back to your normal self again. During physical therapy we work closely with you and your doctor to provide the most efficient and effective care. The first step is to relieve your pain as quickly as possible, then care is taken to restore normal movement. Finally, muscles are strengthened to support and stabilize the area. Teaching you how to maintain your strength and independence once you leave physical therapy is our priority.
