Hand Therapy and Joint Protection
Hand function may be impacted by arthritis, injury, carpal tunnel syndrome and other conditions, or work place factors. Your OT can provide advice on pain management, minimising joint deformity, and managing everyday tasks.
Examples may include:
- Active splints for use during tasks
- Resting splints for use during the night
- Ergonomic equipment
- Adaptive aids for the kitchen, bathroom and office
- Exercise programs
