The hand is an amazing, complex part of the human body, essential for all of our daily self-care, work and everyday activities. Whether writing with a pen, typing on a computer or turning a screwdriver, our hands are important tools in our daily lives. When the hand and upper extremity are unable to function properly due to accidents, disease, repetitive stress and conditions from birth or acquired syndromes, a specialized approach is essential.
Hand therapy focuses in on rehabilitation of the hand and upper limbs and is the merging of occupational therapy and physical therapy theory and practice. Several of our highly skilled physical and occupational therapists go on to become certified hand therapists and are proficient in the treatment of hand and upper extremity pathologies, from the acute to the chronic.
Hand therapy services include:• Post-operative management of upper extremity• Custom orthoses for the upper extremity• Joint mobilization• Instrument-assisted soft tissue techniques• Manual therapy• Taping techniques• Wound and scar management• Edema management• Work simulation• Range of motion• Strengthening• Arthritis

Select Physical Therapy is pleased to announce the addition of another specialty program to our central Virginia community's service offerings. Dry Needling (DN), also known as intramuscular manual therapy/trigger point dry needling, is a modern Western medical modality. DN is a procedure in which filiform needles are used to deactivate myofascial trigger points. It is NOT acupuncture.
What Type of Conditions Can Be Treated With Dry Needling?
Dry needling can be used to treat low back and neck pain (including radiculopathy), shoulder and arm pain (tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, impingement), hip and leg pain (sciatica, muscle strains, calf tightness/spasm), foot pain (ankle sprain, Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis), headache, face and jaw pain (TMJ), and fibromyalgia.
