Hand therapy and physiotherapy rehabilitation is essential following a hand or wrist injury such as a broken wrist, saphead fracture, collies fracture, tendon injury, broken finger, dislocated finger, ruptured finger tendon or broken metacarpal. Specialist hand therapist physiotherapists are highly skilled at treatment and rehabilitation of hand and wrist injuries.
Home exercise programmes are also important to allow the patient to progress between therapy sessions. Equipment that can be used for home treatment includes the Digiflex hand and grip strengthener, hand therapy balls and therapeutic putty. These products are fantastic for improving hand function by improving grip strength, improving dexterity and re-educating fine motor skills.
