Hand therapists treat patients with acute or chronic conditions that limit the mobility in the hand, arm or shoulder.
The goal of hand therapy is to increase function and range of motion and to strengthen and desensitize the affected area after injury or surgery. We do this through active and passive therapies, including nerve reconditioning and muscle stimulation.
Our hand therapists also provide wound care, splinting and protection for arthritic joints.
Lake Health has state-of-the-art hand therapy clinics at the TriPoint Medical Center and West Medical Center. A physician referral is required.
