Traumatic Injuries of the Hand

Accidents can cause fractures, torn tendons and nerves, dislocations of joints, and even crush injuries of the hand.  Due to the intricate nature of the hand, these injuries can be complex.  After initial treatment by an orthopedic doctor, your hand therapist will help to reduce pain and swelling, lessen scar tissue, improve sensitivity, safely increase mobility, and help you to regain the strength and coordination needed to return to activity.
