Hand therapy merges the philosophies and practice of occupational and physical therapies and involves the assessment, planning, and rehabilitation treatment. It promotes prevention, reverse progression or disease or injury, and restore function, all to enhance a patient’s ability to perform everyday tasks and fully enjoy life.
UOA also offers Nerve Conduction Study, which identifies the presence of peripheral nerve damage by assessing how well and how quickly nerves can transmit electrical signals to other parts of the body. Patients suffering from nerve and muscle disorders of the hand, such as carpal tunnel syndrome and cubital tunnel syndrome, can benefit from having a nerve conduction study (NCS).
