Desensitization and Sensory Re-education help patients regain full hand and upper extremity function.
Sometimes, the healing process involves more than the closing of a wound. Continued pain or hypersensitivity to touch, pressure, or temperature can all occur after an injury. Desensitization slowly introduces the sensitive areas to normal forms of touch and temperature to re-acclimate them during recovery. Sensory re-education helps to adapt to the brain’s response to injured areas by retraining accurate assessments of object shape, size, texture, and location. In other words, at Hand in Hand Rehabilitation, we can help you feel right again.
