Upper Extremity Orthopedic Therapy

Upper Extremity TherapyOrthopedic issues are common in all age groups.  They can be related to a sports injury, a fall or accident, and sometimes age can also increase your risk of injury.  In many cases when people suffer from orthopedic issues, they may undergo surgery and then a period of rest.  However, in order to return to full function, therapy will later be prescribed.  In other cases, surgery may not be necessary and therapy might be prescribed immediately.
