Hand and Shoulder Rehab
Your care provider at the center is an occupational therapist who, through experience and/or advanced study, specializes in rehabilitating you with conditions affecting the hand and upper extremity. Their high degree of specialization, experience and advanced training enables the hand therapist to work with you and hasten your return to a productive lifestyle.
As a patient affected by an accident or trauma resulting in wounds, scars, burns, injured tendons or nerves, fractures, or even amputation of the finger, hand, arm and shoulder you can receive treatment at the center.
Patients who are disabled from the affects of cumulative trauma disorders such as tennis elbow or carpal tunnel syndrome receive treatment at the center.
Patients who suffer from such chronic problems as arthritis or a neurological condition can receive treatment at the center.
To provide a continuum of care our therapists will work with you and your physician in all situations. Your care starts within days of the injury or surgery right through to the patients return to work and/or a productive lifestyle.
Patients are evaluated to identify any problem relative to the upper extremities. The therapist will treat and rehabilitate you through to as normal life style as possible.
