A Potent Physical Therapy Toolbox for Arm and Hand Pain

At Zenith Performance Physical Therapy Physical Therapy, we utilize an array of evidence-based techniques to target the root causes of your elbow, wrist, and hand pain and get you lasting relief:

1. Pain and Inflammation Management
First, we focus on relieving your immediate pain and swelling to restore comfort and mobility. Hands-on manual therapy like massage, joint mobilizations, dry needling, and modalities like heat, ice, ultrasound, and e-stim dial down inflammation and irritation. This primes you for healing.

2. Improved Flexibility and Range of Motion
Next, we develop a customized flexibility program with stretches and range of motion exercises specifically suited to open up stiff, restricted joints in your elbow, wrist, and hand. Gentle, progressive movements extend your capabilities so you can complete tasks fluidly.

3. Strengthening and Neuromuscular Re-education
Finally, targeted strengthening builds up the muscular support around your arm’s joints. And neuromuscular re-education retrains proper movement patterns to prevent re-injury. Together, these strategies reinforce stability for lasting relief.

Over 6-12 weeks of therapy, most patients achieve significant reductions in arm and hand discomfort, renewed capability and stamina for daily activities, enhanced athletic performance, and substantially improved quality of life.

I started physical therapy at Zenith with Dr. Thomas since the beginning of the year for back and shoulder issues due to sports, gym, and possibly sitting in an office for 8-10 hours/day. It has been an amazing experience, I’ve essentially been fixed up and put back together and they’ve helped strengthen my weaknesses. Needless to say, I feel significantly better and mobile. They are very accommodating, professional, and friendly as well. I highly recommend this place.

Eden Yimam

Zenith Performance PT has been a really good experience for me. I came in feeling broken with little mobility in my hips, knees and ankles. I was also feeling very tight and constricted around my shoulders. With all of this going on, I knew a possible serious injury could occur. Dr. Thomas Bilodeau took his time assessing me and has come up with a solid plan to correct my issues with easy exercises I can perform in the gym or at home. I look forward to completing the program and increase my quality of life pain free.
