Whether you are performing activities of daily living or your professional life, the majority of the time, your hand/wrist complex is an integral part of your active life. Your hand/wrist complex is a complicated collection of bones, ligaments, cartilage, and muscles that can be compromised if you have pain or lack of motion.
Weakness, locking, tenderness, tingling, and numbness are all signs and symptoms of various issues that can be evaluated by your Orthology provider.
Common hand and wrist conditions include:
The comprehensive approach used by Orthology providers encompasses nonsurgical treatments that relieve pain, promote healing and prevent future injuries. They excel in customized treatment plans designed to increase your strength, restore your range of motion and alleviate pain.
Treatment begins with gaining a thorough understanding of the source of your pain, a clear diagnosis, and a personalized plan for getting you back to doing what you love. Trying to return to athletic activities, dance, music, or just everyday living? No problem. Orthology providers will even provide you a time-frame for your return.
Because they employ a hands-on approach and begin treatment at your very first appointment, you should feel relief or increased function quickly. You’ll also likely experience improved performance from your hand or wrist.
At the outset of care, your medical and physical history is assessed along with other lifestyle factors (such as the type of injury, age, sport, and other needs). With this information, Orthology providers are able to develop a custom care plan that fits your goals.
Employing soft tissue work on muscles, tendons, fascia; joint mobilization on the 27 bones in the hand and wrist; muscle strengthening for the intrinsic muscles and long finger flexors and extensors; your provider will utilize Orthology’s research-based approach to get you on the path to recovery. While non-invasive treatments can often prevent or postpone surgery, they understand that everyone is different.
Expect that your care will take anywhere from 4 to 8 visits and you will leave with the resources you need to help prevent further issues.
