ELBOW, WRIST & HAND PAIN
While our physical therapists will treat your elbow, hand, and/or wrist pain, they will also identify the cause of your discomfort and provide solutions to prevent the condition.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
The main job of the carpal tunnel is to protect the median nerve on the inside of your wrist, in addition to the tendons you use to bend the fingers. However, this tunnel can become constricted, and when it does, nerve compression can result, leading to various symptoms, such as numbness and tingling in the thumb, 1st, and 2nd fingers.
Tennis elbow refers to pain around the outer portion of the elbow during movement and is typically caused by activities that overload the wrist extensor muscles and tissue and that require repetitive use of the wrist muscles.
Golfer’s elbow refers to pain on the medial or inside part of the elbow.
This kind of injury is the result of repetitive use. The injury can be attributed to various tasks, not just the sport it is named after.
Also known as De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis, Gamer’s thumb is a condition in which the tendons that move your thumb become inflamed. Repetitive strain on your thumb tendons leads to inflammation which leads to pain and limited movement.
A trigger finger makes a finger gets stuck in a bent position. It may straighten suddenly with a snap. The fingers most often affected are the ring finger and the thumb, but the condition can affect any finger.
Therapeutic Exercise and Activity
Neuromuscular re-education is a specialized technique to improve coordination, control, and function of muscles and nerves. Our therapists use this technique to restore proper muscle activation, improve balance and proprioception, and enhance overall movement quality. By stimulating the neuromuscular system, patients can regain functional abilities and improve their quality of life.
