Rehabilitative Exercises

Rehabilitative exercises are important in all aspects of treatment and recovery. Often times a recurring condition such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tennis Elbow (lateral epicondylitis) and Golfer’s Elbow (medial epicondylitis) can be resolved by changing the manner in which certain activities are performed – and strengthening supporting muscles. Rehabilitation and therapeutic treatment of the hand, wrist and elbow entails the specialized work of an Occupational Therapist. These “hand therapists” understand the intricate movements of the small bones and joints of the hand and upper extremity and work closely with patients to address their particular area of concern.
