Evaluation, Treatment and Rehabilitation of the Hand Requires a Special Skill Set

Reaching, grabbing, writing, driving, lifting, or waving all activities that we take for granted. Each of these seemingly simple daily activities and many, many more are only possible because of the versatility and flexibility of the upper extremity. This area of the human body is uniquely complex and includes the joints, bones and muscles of the fingers, hand, wrist, arm, elbow and shoulder. Its intricate and mobile design coupled with the use and abuse sustained each day can make this region of the body highly susceptible to injury.
