The hand therapy division of CTMC's out-patient rehabilitation department treats patients with hand and upper extremity problems.
These issues include:
- Cummulative trauma disorders
Our hand therapist is certified to treat tendon lacerations, amputations, hand wounds, post surgery cases and disease processes of the hand and arm. Using a variety of assessment techniques, the therapist will evaluate, with numerous assesment techniques, the functional capacity of the patient and determine the most effective treatment plan. Setting realistic goals, the therapist uses splinting, therapeutic activities, exercises, modalities and manual therapy to treat patients and return full function.
