Outpatient hand therapy
What does a hand therapy specialist treat?
Patients are often referred to a hand therapy specialist at Bryn Mawr Rehab for burns, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, nerve injuries, sprains, strains and tendonitis.
A hand therapy specialist can also aid healing and recovery after hand surgery, or if you’ve had any of the following injuries or diseases:
- Crush injury
- Fracture (of thumb, finger, hand or wrist bone)
- Joint replacement
- Traumatic hand injury
Our hand therapists bring innovative approaches to each patient’s recovery in order to help turn small steps into enormous victories. Some of the hand therapy rehab activities our patients benefit from include:
- Ergonomic education
- Exercises to restore range of motion and strength
- Sensory re-education
- Simple ball sports
- Video games
- Work simulation and workstation assessment
Hand rehabilitation may also include wound care, pain management, dynamic and static custom splinting, serial casting, injury prevention and scar remodeling. Depending on a patient’s condition, therapy could take anywhere from just a few days to a long-term commitment.
