Fairview Hand Therapy

Rehabilitation for problems of the hand, wrist and elbow

A painful or injured hand, wrist or elbow can limit your ability to do work and leisure activities. Problems can involve muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, joints or bones.


Your doctor may recommend rehabilitation as part of your treatment plan. Therapy can help you regain as much function as possible following injury, surgery or disease.
