Hand Therapy

Rebound’s hand therapists work closely with our hand and elbow surgeons to provide a continuum of care. This can start within days of the injury or surgery through to your return to a productive lifestyle. We also treat non-operative conditions and welcome referrals from other practitioners such as primary care physicians, rheumatologists and physiatrists.

Hand therapists are occupational therapists or physical therapists who, through advanced study and training, specialize in treating conditions affecting the elbow, wrist and hand such as:

  • Fractures and dislocations
  • Sports-related injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis and tendon lacerations
  • Nerve compression syndromes such as carpal tunnel
  • Work-related injuries

Using specialized skills in assessment and treatment, our hand therapists work with you to restore function and enhance participation in daily life through:

  • Custom splint fabrication for post-op protection, pain relief or to restore motion
  • Design and implementation of exercise programs to increase mobility, strength or dexterity
  • Retraining of daily life skills with adapted equipment or methods
  • Sensory re-education/desensitization after nerve injury
  • Pain management/edema reduction
  • Post-op wound and scar management

Rebound’s policy requires patients have a referral for therapy.   The referral can come from any medical provider.
