Hand Therapy at Munson Healthcare

Hand injuries such as fractures, cumulative trauma, replants, or tendon repairs make it difficult to perform everyday tasks and can diminish your quality of life. When you have trouble with skills such as writing and driving – even just brushing your teeth, we’re here to help.

The experts on Munson Healthcare’s hand therapy team can help you regain strength, range of motion, coordination, and function in your hand and wrists. We can even help reduce the need for surgery.

Individualized Treatment Plans

Every person has unique needs, so we take the time to thoroughly evaluate each patient’s diagnosis and desired outcomes. That helps us design an individual treatment plan, which might include:

  • Activities of daily living (ADL) training
  • Arthritis education and intervention
  • Dexterity training
  • Edema control
  • Fibromyalgia self-help class
  • Manual therapy
  • Orthotic fabrication and training
  • Pain control
  • Prosthetic training
  • Range of motion exercises
  • Scar management
  • Sensory re-education
  • Strengthening
  • Wound management

We also offer custom-tailored hand and wrist braces that are unlike any over-the-counter products. They are specially engineered to match each patient’s specific needs. These braces help protect healing injuries, reduce nerve compressions, and support painful joints and weak muscles.

Our expertise, services, and specialized equipment may allow you to regain your hand strength and function without surgery.
