Patient Success Spotlight “Playing sports and 10 years in the Marine Corps and I’m in construction so I’m up and down ladders, and in and out of holes and beating concrete all the time, so it’s a lot of shock on my knee. Since I’ve been coming here, he has shown me a lot of things that I can do on my own for my flexibility and to do things in a proper manner where it will take stress off my knee.” – DeVaughan, Past Patient

Your hand and wrist are an amazing, complex part of your body that allows you to touch, grasp, hold and manipulate most everything you do in the day. Just imagine if your hands were not working properly. For many people this is a reality and a painful one they face each day. Each hand and wrist contains, 29 bones, 29 major joints, 123 ligaments,17muscles in thepalm and 18 muscles in the forearm and numerous nerves. There is a lot that needs to work together at the right time and right place. When you suffer from pain in the hand or wrist this can be a result of overuse, arthritis, injury and even congenital problems. Having an expert to evaluate, and then put you on the right path to having the maximum use of your hand again, begins with seeing a hand therapist. A hand therapist is needed when pain, dysfunction, trauma or disease processes occur at the hand, wrist, forearm, elbow and/or shoulder. Due to the complexity of the hand and upper extremity, a hand therapist should be your first choice for rehabilitation.

Hand and wrist pain can be for a variety of reasons, such as movement, limitation due to crush injuries, fracture, tendon lacerations, nerve injuries, burns and wounds, carpal tunnel syndrome (nerve compression), Dupuytren’s contracture, Dequervain’s synovitis, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy / Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
