Experience the Power of Manual Hand Therapy

When it comes to experiencing pain in the wrist and hand, there can be various underlying reasons. Common injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, along with conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, are known to cause discomfort in these areas. To gain a deeper understanding of the potential source of your pain and explore effective treatment options, continue reading below.

Manual therapy is a safe, effective, and non-invasive treatment method utilized by hand therapists to address musculoskeletal pain. When you visit a therapist, they may employ techniques such as joint manipulation, muscle manipulation, joint mobilization, and kneading to alleviate pain and discomfort.

What are the Benefits of Manual Therapy?

The manual therapy techniques offered by our certified hand therapists include:

1. Pain Relief: Manual therapy can help alleviate pain and discomfort by reducing inflammation, releasing endorphins, and promoting tissue healing.

2. Improved Range of Motion: By targeting specific areas of restriction, manual therapy techniques help improve joint flexibility and increase range of motion, enabling individuals to perform daily activities with greater ease.

3. Enhanced Functionality: Manual therapy can improve hand and upper extremity function by addressing joint limitations, reducing muscle tension, and optimizing biomechanics.

4. Accelerated Recovery: These techniques stimulate blood circulation and promote tissue regeneration, aiding in faster healing and rehabilitation.
