NUTRITION & EXERCISE
Proper nutrition and exercise; approved by your physician, can be vital factors in hand and upper extremity injury prevention.
Occupational therapy, ‘OT’, is similar to physical therapy by definition, but different in concept. Both types of rehabilitation help people regain the skills and movement necessary for functioning independently, but the majority of occupational therapists treat hand-and upper-extremity injuries. This therapy can be a vital tool for you to prevent injuries to the hand and upper extremity.
For more information on Hand and Upper Extremity Prevention, contact our office or make sure to check out at our magazine, “Bone and Joint Review,” for articles relating to this topic. Additionally, there is valuable information available in regards to hand safety on the American Society for Surgery of the Hand’s website.
