Hand & Wrist Pain

For individuals experiencing pain in their hands or wrists, both physical and occupational therapy can offer comparable effectiveness to surgical interventions.

All About Me

A proficiently trained physical therapist or occupational therapist will carry out a thorough evaluation and devise an individualized program aimed at reestablishing a full range of motion, strength, sensory perception, nerve mobility, and the capability to perform day-to-day tasks.

During your assessment, an overview of the entire upper section, encompassing the shoulder and neck, could be included, as issues in these regions might contribute to symptoms experienced in the wrist and hand.

Potential interventions for addressing discomfort in the hand and wrist could encompass:

  • Range of motion exercises

  • Flexibility exercises

  • Strengthening

  • Desensitization

  • Manual therapy

  • Functional task adaptation

  • Splint fabrication

  • Taping or bracing

  • IASTM

  • Modalities like heat, cold, electrical stimulation, fluid therapy

  • Dry needling
