Recovery & Support for Wrist & Hand Repetitive Use Injuries

Most people fully recover from hand and wrist overuse injuries with the assistance of the orthopedists and physical and occupational therapists at NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation. Our experts work together to help you heal as quickly as possible, so that you can return to your regular activities.

Hand Therapy

Your doctor may prescribe hand and occupational therapy, which can last anywhere from a few days to several weeks. NYU Langone physical and occupational therapists teach you stretching and strengthening exercises for the affected hand or wrist that improve movement and help strengthen the area. 

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists help you alter your daily environment and activities to better manage your condition. Making small changes in your daily habits—such as modifying your tennis swing, changing the way you text, or adjusting your hold on a musical instrument—can help to prevent hand and wrist overuse injuries from recurring.
