What Is Geriatric Rehabilitation?

When patients suffer from adverse conditions impacting the hands and upper extremity, hand therapy can provide effective treatment and help individuals to regain their productivity, independence and quality of life.

The most common diagnoses that would benefit from a referral to Marlboro Physical Therapy, are:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Tendon Rupture and Repair
  • Wrist/finger Facture
  • Joint Reconstruction
  • Rheumatoid/Osteoarthritis
  • Joint Sprain
  • Tendonitis

Hand rehabilitation can provide many advantages for patients including:

  • Non-surgical intervention and treatment
  • Help with acute or chronic pain
  • Reduction of nerve sensitivity
  • Home strengthening and range of motion exercise programs
  • Custom splints or orthotics
  • Specialized tools to accomplish routine activities
  • Training so they can return to work

How Physical Therapy Can Help?

The rehabilitation of hand injuries will often require the use of physical modalities and therapeutic procedures to help the patient return to their previous level of function.  Treatment options are determined after an initial evaluation by a physical therapist in conjunction with your physician’s orders.

The treatment program may consist of physical modalities (moist heat, ice, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, massage, paraffin wax) and/or therapeutic procedures (joint mobilization, passive stretching, activities of daily living, therapeutic exercise, range of motion, fine motor skills, gross grasp and grip strengthening).

Splinting may also be required to position the hand/finger in the proper position for healing and to prevent further damage. Ergonomic modifications at your workplace and/or home may be suggested to prevent re-injury.
