Hand therapy is a specialty practice area under the allied health occupational therapy group. They are mainly concerned with treating orthopedic-based upper extremities:
(skin, bones, joints, muscles, nerves etc) to optimize the functional and mobility use of the upper extremity. We address biomechanical issues underlying any hand and upper limb issues.
As primarily occupational therapists, the hand occupational therapist often uses an occupation-based and client centred approach to hand rehabilitation by identifying the needs of the clients, and then tailoring interventions to improve performance in their preferred activities and tasks – it can be wanting to drive again, using the mouse, cutting foods, open a can of Coke etc.
Common painful finger, hand, wrist, forearm and elbow conditions that we treat includes fractures in the bones of the arm or hand, sprains and strains of the ligaments in the joints and connective tissues, lacerations, cuts, amputations, burns and surgical repairs of tendons and nerves of the hand and arm.
