Hand Therapy

Brampton Hand Therapy

Brampton Hand Therapy is beneficial if you suffer from a short-term or chronic condition that inhibits full use or prevents all use of your hands.

Such partial or full loss of hand functionality typically occurs due to limited coordination between nerves, muscles, tendons and joints in your hands.

Common conditions that can cause you to experience a partial or complete loss of hand functionality include:-

  •       Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  •       Dupuytren’s Contracture
  •       Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
  •       Elbow Fractures
  •       De Quervain Tenosynovitis
  •       Sport’s related injuries
  •       Congenital Hand Deformities
  •       Tumours of the Hand and Wrist
  •       Arthritis of the Hands, Wrist and Fingers
  •       Tendonitis of the Hand and Wrist, and other equally detrimental conditions.

Fortunately, a hand therapy session at our Brampton Activa clinic is the first step in your journey to recover from a debilitating condition affecting one or both of your hands.

What is Chiropractic Care?

Hand therapy refers to an array of procedures carried out on your hands to realize two objectives: -

In this context, hand therapy encompasses procedures that target the shoulders, upper arms, elbows, forearm, wrists, palm and fingers.

Depending on the causal condition, your hand therapy will fall into one or more of three categories: -

1. Preventative care

Brampton hand therapy helps you complete everyday tasks despite an early diagnosis of hand impairment, as part of occupational therapy.

2. Post-Operation Rehabilitation

Activa Clinic hand therapy at our Brampton clinic facilitates your progressive recovery from a surgical procedure meant to address an issue with the use of one or both hands.

3. Non-Operative therapy

Hand therapy at our Activa Clinic in Brampton avails a non-invasive technique for regaining sufficient use of your hands, as part of physical therapy.

You receive non-operative hand therapy if your condition is due to an ailment, accident or congenital defect.

Over the decades, since DD Palmer started the chiropractic care movement, new approaches have been investigated and honed. At Activa Clinics we use several approaches in tandem. All of them already have a good track record. We find that combining several techniques, sometimes with other forms of physical therapy, is better at producing long-term improvements.

When you schedule an Activa Hand Therapy appointment at our Brampton’s clinic, the procedure you undergo depends on the nature of your condition.

Hand Therapy procedures that we offer at Brampton Activa clinic include:

Soft Tissue Therapy

During soft-tissue tissue therapy, an experienced Brampton physiotherapist guides you through exercises that involve holding small weights at various positions for short durations. These exercises help to improve the flexibility of connective tissues attaching various hand muscles to bones in your forearm, upper arm, wrist and fingers.

This hand therapy procedure is suited for alleviating the effects of Tendonitis,  De Quervain Tenosynovitis and Congenital Hand deformity.

Joint Motion Therapy

While undergoing joint motion therapy, an Activa clinic physiotherapist guides you through an array of hand motion exercises meant to improve the mobility of various joints in your arms. Brampton clinic joint motion therapy can help you recover from joint problems in your shoulder, elbow, wrist and fingers.

Joint motion hand therapy is ideal for treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Dupuytren’s Contracture, Cubital Tunnel Syndrome and sports-related joint injuries.

Strength Building Therapy

Strength building therapy features a licensed Brampton physiotherapist guiding you through various weight-oriented exercises designed to strengthen muscles in your arms. This procedure is beneficial if you have a degenerative condition that causes atrophy of muscles in your upper arm, forearm, shoulder and fingers.

Strength building hand therapy at our Brampton facility is suited for managing Congenital Hand Deformity, Tendonitis and De Quervain Tenosynovitis.

Pain Management Therapy

As the name suggests, pain management therapy involves procedures meant to alleviate intermittent and chronic pain originating from joints, muscles, nerves and tendons in your arms.

This procedure entails:

  • Creation of custom orthotics that perfectly align joints, nerves, muscles and tendons to provide you with pain relief while wearing your purpose-built orthosis.

Our Brampton Activa clinic can create custom orthoses for your upper arm, forearm, elbow, wrist and fingers to avail pain relief in a variety of conditions.
