Individuals recovering from an injury or adapting to a new physical normal encounter various challenges. Among these, regaining full functionality and ease of movement in the upper extremities — which include the shoulders, arms, elbows, wrists, and hands — is a common and significant one. This is where Upper Extremity Rehabilitation (Upper Extremity Rehab) plays a critical role in guiding individuals through a personalized journey toward regaining strength, functionality, and confidence in their upper body movements.
What is Upper Extremity Rehab?
Upper Extremity Rehab is a specialized form of therapy designed to restore the normal functioning of an individual’s upper limbs after injury, surgery, or a medical condition. This form of therapy focuses on improving the strength, mobility, and coordination of the shoulders, arms, wrists, hands, and fingers. The ultimate aim is to aid individuals in returning to their daily activities smoothly and pain-free.
How Does Upper Extremity Rehab Work in Manhattan and Long Island?
The process starts with a comprehensive evaluation by a Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) to understand the extent of injury or limitation and to determine the precise needs of the individual. Following the assessment, a tailored rehabilitation program is crafted, which may encompass a combination of exercises, stretches, manual therapy, and the use of specialized rehabilitation equipment. This program is designed to progressively improve the functionality, strength, and mobility of the affected area, reducing pain and promoting self-sufficiency in daily tasks.
