Coastal Hand Therapy's strengthening and exercise programs are tailored to individual needs and patient goals.
Strengthening exercises are required post operatively after a period of rest or following a finger or wrist fracture. Helping to reduce joint pain and improve stability in conditions such as thumb osteoarthritis, strengthening exercises are proven to help with tennis elbow and other tendinopathies.
Exercise programs are essential for patients to achieve the best outcome and may involve joint motion, nerve gliding exercises, stretches to reduce scarring or improve muscle length. They may also be used to retrain someone to perform a functional activity such as writing, playing an instrument, or returning to their favourite activity.
Ergonomic training may also be required to avoid aggravating or reinjuring.
