Hand physical therapy services are developed to treat various musculoskeletal issues and restore normal function to the upper extremities including the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder. Conditions may include orthopedic injuries or loss of function after a chronic condition or neurologic insult such as stroke. Hand therapy patients may have been affected by an accident, trauma, or surgery. Did you know, less than 40% of patients receive first-line interventions for hand disorders/injuries?
The benefits of physical therapy and occupational therapy for hand disorders are many and include education on work ergonomics (keyboard position) to reduce stress on the wrist and hand, fabrication and recommendations for appropriate wrist and hand orthoses, and identification and treatment of contributing neck and upper extremity impairments.
Physical and Occupational Therapists are movement experts that are specifically trained to treat these impairments. If you are experiencing hand pain or discomfort, find a location near you to see how PT can help: https://bit.ly/2LyHeBC

A progressive neurological disorder, Parkinson’s disease (PD) can affect the quality of every move a person makes. It is a neurological disease that affects the brain’s ability to produce dopamine, the chemical that helps with smooth, purposeful movements. This disease typically affects people over the age of 60 but can occur earlier in life. More than 50,000 people are diagnosed every year in the United States.
LSVT-BIG (Lee Silverman Voice Technique) is an intensive therapy program delivered by specially trained therapists to enhance speech and motor function and slow the progression of Parkinson’s. This program was initially developed to treat the speech and swallowing symptoms associated with the disease. The “BIG” component was developed to address the other functional difficulties associated with Parkinson’s. This includes specific exercises that include large, exaggerated movement patterns that create smoother, larger, and safer movements and can increase quality of life. Benefits of LSVT-BIG can include improved flexibility, improved balance, improved walking speed, strengthened muscles, and patients are often able to take larger steps.

Baseball season has finally arrived. While the number of youth baseball players increases each year, unfortunately, so does the number of injuries seen on the field. Being sensible and smart can go a long way in reducing injuries. Here are a few simple things coaches, parents, and players can do to combat the growing rate of youth baseball injuries:
*Keep a pitch count and follow guidelines for days’ rest (they even have apps for this).
*Do not pitch for more than one team during a season.
*Do not pitch more than 100 innings in a calendar year.
*Take time off during the year, at least two months off from throwing.
*Get rid of the radar gun.
*Perform an exercise program for shoulder and arm strength.
*Work with a qualified pitching instructor who can assess your mechanics.
*Be aware of fatigue and stop when you get to that point.
*Do not pitch if you are having arm pain.

One of the most common things patients want to know is, “What should I wear to physical therapy?” Wearing the right attire can help to make it easier for your physical therapist to fully evaluate and treat your injury. Consider these recommendations when deciding what to wear.
Comfort - Being comfortable should be your number one priority when choosing what to wear. Avoid clothing with too many buttons, snaps, or clunky zippers, and take off any jewelry before your session.
Room to Move - Your apparel should allow you to move freely and perform any stretches and exercises that are part of your treatment plan. Athletic or leisurewear is a great option.
Layers - Dressing in layers is practical in case you get warm or feel chilly during physical therapy. Try wearing a t-shirt or a tank top with an athletic jacket or loose sweatshirt on top.
Access to Injury - When you dress for physical therapy, think about the affected body part. Wear clothing that allows your physical therapist to access the treatment area quickly and easily.
Shoes - Your shoes should be comfortable, well-fitting, and supportive. Sneakers, flat shoes or athletic shoes are best.
If you have questions about what to wear to physical therapy or any other part of the rehabilitation experience, don’t hesitate to reach out to your physical therapist prior to your appointment. They may have specific guidance based on your condition and treatment goals.

One of our most frequently asked questions is if insurance covers physical therapy sessions.
We work with most major insurance providers and do our best to help you keep the paperwork pain-free. If you’d like to confirm your insurance coverage, please let us know and we can verify when you schedule. If your insurance provider requires a co-pay, we will ask for this payment at each visit. We accept payments by cash, check or credit card.
More than $50 billion is spent annually on low back pain treatment and injuries can result from simple daily tasks as much as they can from heavy lifting. Here are some lifting tips from our physical therapists that may help:
*Using Proper Posture - Do not bend forward to pick up an object. If the object is narrow enough for you to straddle it, squat next to the object and lift with your legs, keeping your back straight.
*Check the Object - Check to see that the contents are balanced and packed in a way that they won’t move around when lifting.
*Warm-Up - Before lifting anything, stretch your legs and back to prepare them for work.
*Observe Your Surroundings - Be aware of where you’re going — be sure to have enough visibility around your object to identify obstacles.
*Avoid Overworking Yourself - Take breaks and avoid lifting items that are too heavy.
*Wear Proper Footwear - Wear comfortable, low-heeled shoes tied tightly to your foot to avoid slippage.
