Treatment for Upper Extremity Injuries

We use our upper extremities (arms) every day; our wrists, hands and fingers are intricate collections of muscles, joints, and nerves that we put to use in hundreds of ways. We usually don’t realize how much we use our arms and hands every day until we’ve suffered an injury or disease to the arm or hand.

At Coastal Rehabilitation, our therapists understand the vulnerabilities and delicate interconnected relationship between the nerves, tendons, joints, and bones throughout the upper body.  Physical therapists are experts in the neuro-musculoskeletal systems; using thorough evaluations, therapists are able to provide differential diagnosis and select treatments which are matched carefully to your health, lifestyle, age and functional goals. Our therapists will develop a comprehensive and individualized treatment plan designed to prevent dysfunction, restore function, and reverse or prevent the advancement of disease. Each intervention in your program is designed to meet your individual needs. Education is important in your treatment plan; we will help you to understand the cause and specific nature of your condition or injury to optimize your recovery and long term health and wellness. Our overall goal is to provide you with a tailored, comprehensive program to restore the highest level of function and best possible quality of life.
