Hand Therapy 

At LHMPTI, we understand that injuries and conditions involving your hands and upper extremities can significantly impact your daily life. Hand therapy plays a crucial role in the recovery from injury or disease of the upper extremities and in the recovery from surgical procedures. We are proud to offer exceptional hand therapy that will focus on regaining the use of your hand so that you can get back to your normal activities at home, at work, and in your community. 

Hand therapy is the art and science of rehabilitation of the upper limb including the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder. Our hand specialists merge the concepts of occupational and physical therapy theory and practice by combining knowledge of the complex structure of the upper limb with function and activity. Our therapists use methods such as manual techniques, exercise, splinting/orthotic fabrication, scar management, and wound care to help you recover from injuries and conditions that affect your upper extremity and hand.   

 A hand specialist provides care for patients with a variety of upper extremity injuries and disorders, from simple fingertip injuries to complex surgeries. Our highly skilled team of physical and occupational therapists are experienced in treating common problems affecting the hand such as fractures, tendon lacerations/repairs, arthritis, stiff hands or fingers, trigger fingers, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, neurological conditions, weakness after a stroke, and more.  We are dedicated to helping you restore mobility, strength, and use of your hand so that you can maximize your independence and return to your productive lifestyle.  

 Our highly qualified hand therapists will evaluate and treat any problems related to the upper extremity and hand.  Whether you’ve recently had an accident, trauma, or orthopedic surgery or are dealing with chronic arthritis or pain from an injury, our comprehensive hand therapy services are designed to optimize your recovery and improve your overall quality of life. 

 Hand therapy offers numerous benefits. Working with our skilled therapists, you can expect: 

 Comprehensive and individualized care: We understand that every patient is unique, so we'll tailor our treatments to your specific needs and to achieve the best possible outcome for your hand and entire upper extremity.
 Restoring function: Our hand specialists will design custom activity/exercise programs to increase your motion, dexterity, strength, and functional use of your hand with skills such as pinching, writing, gripping, and using tools.
 Pain and swelling reduction: We aim to alleviate your pain and discomfort through targeted interventions and therapeutic techniques.
 Promote wound healing: Our therapists will treat wounds that may result from accident, trauma, or surgery and monitor those wounds to prevent infection.
 Desensitization and re-education of nerves: Treatment programs mayl include desensitization, sensory re-education, or sensory compensatory techniques to help alleviate nerve pain, improve sensation, and regain the use of your hand.
 Improved mobility and function: We'll help you regain your mobility by using techniques designed to soften scars and reduce adhesions between your skin and tendons, enabling your nerves, tendons, and joints to glide and move with greater ease as you perform your daily activities.
 oint protection: Our therapists will evaluate and fit you with a custom-made splint to protect, immobilize, or correct an injured or deformed bone, tendon, ligament, or surgical repair.
 Faster recovery: Our team will create a progressive outcome based treatment plan to promote efficient healing and minimize downtime.
 Prevention of further injuries: Through education and specialized exercises, we'll equip you with the knowledge and tools to reduce the risk of future injuries.
 Continuum of care: Our therapists will be able to guide you through the continuum of care as you rehabilitate your injury or condition, eliminating the need for multiple medical providers.
