Hand, Wrist, and Elbow Pain
The hand, wrist, and elbow complete intricate movements during everyday activities like washing dishes, controlling the steering wheel, and tying a shoelace. There are a total of 27 bones in the hands, including the wrist.
An intricate network of muscles, tendons, nerves, and blood vessels, is also packed into the tight space of the hand. So if one area does not work properly due to injury, a person may have a hard time completing their daily activities. The hand, wrist, and elbow is very vulnerable to traumatic injuries (i.e. sprain, strain, fracture) and repetitive injuries (i.e. from sports or work).

Why Try Physical Therapy
Physical therapists are highly trained to identify the faulty moving components caused by weak, tight, or injured muscles that stop or change normal motion and cause hand, wrist, and elbow pain. A physical therapist can treat or reduce hand, wrist, and elbow pain using a combination of modalities, hands-on manual therapy, exercises, and education on body posture and the importance of breaks.
A physical therapist can help restore normal motion, flexibility and strength in your muscles so you can have reduced pain and function better. Most importantly, they will help you get the affected area moving as quickly and safely as possible after your injury so you can go back to your daily activities.
