Therapy treatment may include wound and pin care, scar and edema management, motion restoration, therapeutic exercise, ergonomic recommendations, soft tissue mobilization, custom splint fabrication, modalities, and patient education. Our goal, and commitment, is to return our patients to an active lifestyle, free of pain.
