How does hand physiotherapy work?

Hand physiotherapy typically involves a combination of treatments, such as:

Exercise: This is the most important part of hand physiotherapy. Exercises help to improve strength, range of motion, and flexibility in the hand, wrist, and forearm.
Manual therapy: This involves the therapist using their hands to massage and mobilize the tissues in the hand, wrist, and forearm.
Modalities: These are treatments such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and heat or cold therapy that can help to reduce pain and inflammation.
Splinting: Splints can be used to immobilize the hand or wrist in order to protect it from further injury and promote healing.
