Northern Virginia Hand Therapy Center offer expert rehabilitative care for the elbow, hand, finger and wrist injuries of all types. Rehabilitation is critical to complete healing from hand injuries and surgical procedures. Whether you are looking to improve mobility and flexibility as you age, address chronic pain from work or are rehabbing a sports injury, our team of specialists will get you back in the game.
For traumas and after-surgery care, we traditionally focus on the reduction of swelling, promotion of wound healing, gentle and gradual movement. Frequently a custom fabricated splint is made to provide protection of the injured part. Therapy is progressed according to specific guidelines to include exercises and techniques to allow return to the highest level of function possible in work, home and leisure activities. If required, the therapist can evaluate the work site and make recommendations related to the equipment or work tasks involved.
For chronic or acquired conditions, the emphasis is placed on symptom management, function, prevention and activity modification. When the condition results in a limited use of the hand or arm, our therapists can design equipment and splints to improve these limitations. Throughout the therapy process, home exercises and treatment techniques are included so that eventually, a home therapy program can be carried out with occasional visits to the therapist for monitoring and adjusting the home program.
