You have to use your arms and hands for almost everything you do in life, so elbow, wrist or hand pain can really slow you down! If the pain gets bad enough, it can keep you from performing your important tasks at work and home. There are many causes of pain and it is best to let a medical professional help you decipher the causes of pain to get help as quickly as possible.
In physical therapy, our most basic obligation is to medically screen you and make sure that you are being treated in the right place. Physical therapists are trained to identify red flags that would require further medical assessment. If we cannot help you, we will refer you to the proper place. Physical therapists are also trained to help you find the root cause of your condition and to help you resolve your issue without medication or surgery whenever possible, saving you time and money.
Your physical therapist can help you address elbow, wrist and hand pain and the functional difficulties related to it. Some of the common conditions we address;
- Joint Pain
- Tennis/Golf Elbow (not just caused by tennis and golf)
- Muscle Strains
- Ligament Sprains
- Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
- De Quervain’s Tendinitis
- Trigger Finger (or mouse, phone finger)
Your physical therapist will perform a thorough examination and will work with you to develop your goals for treatment and a physical therapy plan to help you achieve those goals.
You don’t need to hurt any longer, call us to get an evaluation and treatment. Our physical therapists are licensed, experienced and committed to seeing you restored to better health.
