A recent visit to the Hand Management Center at Arnot Health served as a reminder that quality care can be found in every nook and cranny throughout the system. Located on the campus of St. Joseph’s Hospital in Elmira, the Hand Management Center has been in the community for over 30 years and is the first comprehensive hand therapy practice in the Southern Tier of New York. Still today, the Center is the only standing clinic in the region that exclusively treats hand patients with three certified hand therapists on staff.
A visit to the Hand Management Center reveals an open, inclusive atmosphere where patients are treated with individualized care in a more social setting. The latest in hand rehabilitation equipment allows for a variety of treatments, including ultrasounds, electrical stimulation, heat treatment, therapeutic exercises, and others that offer relief of pain and improved functionality. Custom orthotics are also fabricated on-site to address individual patient needs.
Therapists at the Center work with patients from beginning to end, following them through their entire healing and rehabilitation process. They are trained on a wide range of accidents and trauma, from cuts, burns, and fractures to conditions like tendonitis, tennis elbow, and more. They work with all ages, from newborns with congenital problems to geriatric patients, to help improve hand functions in every stage of life.
The overall approach at the Hand Management Center at Arnot Health is progressive, comprehensive, and caring. For more information about referrals and services, contact the Hand Management Center at St. Joseph’s Hospital today: 607-737-7818.
