Hand Therapy and Other Services

Hand therapy aids in regaining strength, flexibility, range of motion and decreasing pain for the following conditions:

  • Trigger finger
  • DeQuervain’s tendinitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

These conditions are very common and are often treated non-surgically with great success in a skilled hand therapy program. Patients often continue working while they are receiving treatment. The treatment consists of joint and tendon protection techniques as well as an ergonomic tutorial completed by a certified hand therapist.

Additional services include:

  • Return to work training
  • Modalities for pain management
  • Coordination and strengthening
  • Post-surgical wound care
  • Custom-fabricated splinting

Podcast: Therapy for Trigger Finger

Trigger finger is when your finger is locked in the bending position and you can't straighten it. It happens when the tendons that enable your finger to bend become swollen.

In this podcast, occupational therapist Vincent Chiu discusses trigger finger symptoms, risk factors and treatment options.
