About SRO PT/OT and Hand Therapy Services

Therapy treatments may include manual therapy, exercise, postural and ergonomic education, and modalities such as ultrasound, electric stimulation, paraffin, moist heat, and ice. Typical goals include increasing flexibility and strength, improving gait and balance, and decreasing pain in an effort to return our patients to full function.

Our experienced and highly skilled physical therapists have extensive post-graduate education in orthopaedics and sports rehabilitation, and they stay current on the most effective approaches to injury prevention and rehabilitation. They evaluate and treat a wide range of musculoskeletal dysfunctions, including acute injuries, degenerative conditions, and athletic and work related injuries. The therapists and physicians work closely together to ensure consistently superb rehabilitation of post-surgical patients.

SRO occupational therapists are all board certified hand therapists, guaranteeing their expertise in treating everything from carpal tunnel syndrome to complex post-surgical cases. SRO’s Hand Therapists specialize in a variety of post-surgical and post traumatic injuries including replantations/ revascularizations, tendon repairs, burns, and fractures/dislocations along with degenerative disorders such as osteoarthritis and tendon conditions including DeQuervain’s and lateral epicondylitis.

They also work closely with physicians and patients to fabricate specialized splints designed to protect muscles, tendons, and joints.
