Therapy Concepts for the Proximal Interphalangeal Joint HAND CLINICS Douglass, N. P., Ladd, A. L. 2018; 34 (2): 289-+

Abstract

The principles of hand therapy for proximal interphalangeal joint disorders include protecting injured structures, minimizing patient discomfort, and optimizing patient recovery. Comprehension of hand anatomy, the nature of the injury being treated, and the phases of healing are critical when designing a safe and effective hand therapy program. Hand therapists use a combination of orthoses, guided exercises, and modalities to improve edema, sensitivity, range of motion, and function.
