Hand Therapy & Evaluation
Hand therapy is the evaluation and treatment of injuries and conditions of the wrist and hand. It uses a number of therapeutic interventions to help return a person to their highest level of function. Such conditions include:
- Boutonniere Deformity
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- CMC Arthritis
- Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
- DeQuervain Tendinopathy
- Distal Radius Fracture
- Dupuytren Disease
- Extensor Tendon Injury
- Flexor Tendon Injury
Stenosing tenosynovitis is a condition commonly known as “trigger finger.” The tendons that bend the fingers glide easily with the help of pulleys. Trigger finger occurs when the pulley becomes too thick, so the tendon cannot glide easily through it.
A bone fracture is a medical condition in which there is a damage in the continuity of the bone. A bone fracture can be the result of high force impact or stress, or a minimal trauma injury as a result of certain medical conditions that weaken the bones, such as osteoporosis, bone cancer, or osteogenesis imperfecta.
Tendinitis is the inflammation of tendons. Commonly, the type of tendon is attached to the name such as Achillies tendinitis, or patellar tendinitis.
