We Specialize in... Orthopedic Rehabilitation
Because the majority of problems are mechanical, relating to specific activities, postures, and habits of the patient's life style, a mechanical solution is necessary. Our staff are experts in spinal care with post-graduate training in the manual therapy approach to diagnosis and treatment. A thorough evaluation will be performed to identify movements, positions, and activities that aggravate the condition as well as those that will decrease symptoms. Emphasis here is on active self-treatment in which the patient plays a vital role.
Because of the unique structure, anatomy and functional requiements of the hand, specialized training is necessary for proper rehabilitation. Hand rehabilitation is truly a subspecialty of orthopedics. We work closely with your physician to be sure appropriate treatment is being rendered for the specific surgical intervention you have received. Splinting will be done as needed.
Occupational therapy is a specialized area of medicine, focusing on returning function and treating symptoms in the upper body. This may be needed after a work injury, following surgery or with the repetitive trauma of overworking the wrist and hands. Carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive stress disorders are particularly responsive to treatment by our OT.
