What is Wound Care?
Wound care is a specialized medical practice aimed at promoting the healing of wounds, minimizing scar tissue development, and averting infections. Wounds, particularly on the upper extremities, can arise from a plethora of circumstances such as accidents, surgeries, burns, or chronic health conditions like diabetes. These wounds, if left unattended, can evolve into a complex array of problems including infections, decreased function, and unsightly scars. Expert wound care is pivotal to prevent these complications, thus ensuring individuals regain maximum functionality and aesthetics of their body.
How Does Wound Care Work in Manhattan and Long Island?
Wound care encompasses an array of procedures and therapies administered by a certified occupational therapist. The process initiates with a thorough assessment of the wound to determine its extent and the appropriate treatment course. This may include cleaning to eliminate any foreign material and bacteria, dead tissue debridement, application of topical antibiotics to prevent or treat infections, and dressing changes to maintain a moist healing environment. Additionally, the treatment may incorporate exercises and manual therapy to restore function and prevent stiffness. In more severe cases, advanced wound care techniques like negative pressure wound therapy or hyperbaric oxygen therapy might be employed.

I was referred to this location after an unfortunate accident that left my right hand broken while vacationing in NYC. Everyone was very nice including Leslie, my Therapist, who made the splint for my right hand in a short amount of time and gave me all the info I needed for care and speedy healing for my trip back to CA. They even called my Ins. right then and figured out what my coverage was to ensure proper billing. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who may need rehabilitation following an injury, their office was completely set up to help anyone regain their full motion and mobility.
I can not express how grateful I am to have found Hand in Hand. I had therapy before and after having surgery on my wrist. The progress they facilitated is remarkable. Beyond that, the facility is very clean and the therapists and assistance are all wonderful! Can’t possibly give them the amount of praise they deserve. !if you need hand, wrist, elbow therapy I highly recommend them!!’
