Sometimes it’s easy to overlook the parts of our bodies that do a tremendous amount of work. The hands, for instance, are small but contribute so much to the things that we do on a daily basis. Simple tasks such as picking up and putting down suddenly become restricted or impossible. So experiencing hand pain, wrist pain or a hand injury is not only uncomfortable, but frustrating and inconvenient too.
Your hand pain may be caused by injury, tendon damage, nerve damage, fractures, carpal tunnel or arthritis. A Physical Therapist to help identify the source of the problem and PT for the hand can help to avoid surgery. If surgery is necessary, physical therapy can assist in recovery. Whether you are experiencing chronic pain or have had a recent injury, don’t wait for your hand or wrist pain to become unbearable. Contact Feldman Physical Therapy and Performance for a full evaluation by our Doctors of Physical Therapy. We can determine if additional tests are needed and get a jump start on the best plan to begin recovery.
There is no set timeline for recovery but, working with a Physical Therapist can certainly help speed it up. At Feldman Physical Therapy and Performance, you will experience one on one treatment with a Doctor of Physical Therapy to create a personalized plan that gets you meeting and even exceeding your goals with fewer visits. The immediate goals are to reduce pain and any swelling in your hand. As rehabilitation progresses, you can expect hand exercises to improve range of motion, strength, balance, endurance, and flexibility.
