Wrist/Hand

The wrist and hand are comprised of LOTS of little joints that allow for all or our mobility and dexterity.  However, because of all these joints, hands are a common site for injury. People can also develop conditions like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome from repetitive movements, like typing with a desk job, causing numbness and weakness in the hands.  Other injuries can occur such as falls on outstretched hands causing strains/sprains or fractures.  Physical Therapists are highly equipped to make sure all those joints and the surrounding structures (ligaments, muscles, fascia) are moving properly to return you back to the activities you love to do.  We can also often times help people avoid surgeries such as Carpal Tunnel Releases by reducing stress on nerve structures and simply correcting ergonomic set-up at home/work.
