Hand and Wrist Injury Recovery
When a hand or wrist becomes injured, there are many different elements that are affected – especially when you consider just how intricate these structures are. While no injury is ever welcomed, damage to the hands and wrists can make everyday tasks and actions a challenge, and prevents athletes from performing to the best of their abilities. The JAG PT staff takes hand and wrist injuries very seriously, and we help our patients regain their strength and mobility through our beneficial physical therapy programs.
Causes of Hand and Wrist Injuries
Hand and wrist injuries can be the result of a few incidences. They can happen when an athlete is performing during a game or recreational activity; during a work-related task; completing chores and normal activities around the house; and can be the direct result of an accidental fall. The overuse of the hand and wrist can also cause injuries. These types of overuse injuries can occur from conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome and De Quervain’s disease.
Hand and Wrist Injury Signs and Symptoms
Making note of all your possible hand or wrist injury symptoms will help the JAG PT staff create a more effective physical therapy program for your injury. Patients who experience hand and wrist injuries usually notice swelling, pain, bruising and hand or wrist deformity. Limited to no ability to move or put weight on the hand or wrist can also be signs of a hand or writ injury.
