Hand and Orthopedic Physical Therapy
Orthopedic physical therapists have advanced training in orthopedics, which focuses on the musculoskeletal system and the care and recovery from injuries to ligaments, tendons, muscles, and bones. Hand and orthopedic physical therapy are both available with our physical therapists, giving you the best opportunity for success.
This becomes particularly important if you’ve had hand surgery. You’ll want to seek the specialized care of an orthopedic physical therapist who can help you regain function and improve strength. Orthopedic physical therapists are not limited to hand care. If you’re undergoing surgery for something like carpal tunnel, for example, you’ll want to make sure you’re being treated by a therapist who specializes in or has training in hand orthopedics.
Physical Therapy for Carpal Tunnel
Speaking of carpal tunnel syndrome, this is one of the most common hand complaints we see in our offices when patients come in with hand pain. Many people are referred to us for physical therapy after carpal tunnel surgery and our team, led by medical doctors on staff, will take excellent care of you after surgery. You’ll receive customized, hands-on care that will help you regain your mobility without pain.
For people who haven’t undergone surgery, there is even better news. In some situations, physical therapy for carpal tunnel syndrome can reduce your pain and prevent the need for surgery. Hand specialists will work on more than just the muscles in your hand, your carpal tunnel therapy will expand to include the nerves and tendons in your hands. This will help to reduce pain and increase your mobility. You will learn techniques to make daily activities less painful and explore changes in your routine that will provide you with dramatic results.
How well carpal tunnel therapy works depends on your level of impingement and your commitment to adapting how you do some tasks and keeping up with your therapy. But hand therapy is definitely a recommended first step for pain relief.
Broken Hand Physical Therapy Exercises
Rehab for a broken hand, broken fingers, sprained wrist, etc. is highly recommended to help you heal faster and to regain all of your mobility. Depending on the severity and location of your injury, full recovery may not be possible after surgery, but with prompt broken hand physical therapy exercises, you stand a much better chance of achieving that full-recovery goal.
The primary objective after any broken bone is to regain strength and movement which is what makes physical therapy so important. It’s the safest way to effectively bring that part of your body back up to speed without doing additional damage. This is especially important when you’re dealing with the hand and wrist or the foot and ankle because these bones are so important in daily living. This is why your choice of physical therapist is crucial and selecting Physical Therapists NYC can make all the difference.
