Hand Therapy? What’s that?

The Hand and Wrist cumulatively make up more neurons, nerve connections and endings than any other part of the body. The dexterity achieved as a result of the hand is so complex that modern biomechanical science will take years to develop something as smooth and dexterous as the human-hand.

Hand therapy is therapy that helps people recover from hand and wrist injuries and/or conditions. Hand therapists are Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists that have experience in providing individualized treatment plans to those who are affected by these injuries or conditions. The main goal is to aid the patient in returning to their regular daily life as soon and as safely as possible. There are a variety of different treatments that can be used:

  • Cupping
  • Custom Splints
  • Taping
  • Soft-tissue Manipulation
  • Scar care
