Improve Elbow Pain, Wrist Pain and Hand Pain with Health Loft Physical Therapy

Our team of knowledgeable physical therapists knows that achieving relief from painful conditions like tennis elbow, golfers elbow, and carpal tunnel syndrome requires a multifaceted approach. We use strength, mobility, posture, overall health and education about your disease to help you have less pain and better quality of life, every day.

Treating Elbow, Wrist and Hand Pain

We work with our elbows, wrists, and hands constantly throughout the day. Chronic pain or an injury can have profound impacts on your ability to function at your job, play sports, or enjoy recreational activities. Health Loft Physical Therapists have extensive experience successfully treating patients who suffer from elbow, wrist and hand pain. This type of pain is often the result of repetitive activity that “overloads” the tissue and results in pain, which serves as a warning sign that something is wrong. This condition can develop for many different reasons, but people with occupations that require prolonged, repetitive use of their arms such as hairstylists, office workers and athletes are at high risk.

Individualized Physical Therapy for Elbow, Hand and Wrist Pain

Before beginning your physical therapy for elbow, hand or wrist pain, your physical therapist will get to know you and your goals for treatment. Your physical therapist will then examine you to get a baseline of mobility for your shoulder, shoulder blade, upper back, elbows, wrists and hands, as all of these areas have the potential to contribute to your symptoms. Your doctor will use this information to devise a plan just for you and treat your specific cause of pain as quickly and effectively as possible.
