Your hands are expressive in ways words can never match. They are tools for achieving even the simplest goals. They can elicit emotion, inspire music and create a world of opportunities.
At Eden Medical Center, our goal is to provide therapies to help restore your health and unique expression following an injury to the hand, arm or shoulder. Hand therapists can help you recover from conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, repetitive stress injuries, fractures, arthritis, crush injuries, reattachments, nerve injuries, tendon repairs and joint reconstruction procedures.
Our certified hand therapists are dedicated to the treatment of traumatic, surgical, inflammatory and cumulative disorders and other conditions of the upper extremity (shoulder, elbow, forearm, wrist and hand). After a referral from your doctor, we can help you regain strength and function while protecting from further injury or strain. Available treatments include:
- Generalized upper extremity rehabilitation
- Therapeutic exercises
- Functional activities
- Wound care
- Soft tissue procedures
- Management of neural tension and swelling
- Custom orthotic fabrication
- Function capacity evaluations
- Patient education
Many of our hand therapists are members of the American Society of Hand Therapists. In addition, Sutter Health’s network of sports medicine and rehabilitation centers are certified by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities as adhering to the highest industry standards of excellence.
