Hand Therapy and Wound Care

Hand Therapy and Wound Care

All therapists at MHT are competent in wound management which is critical to the successful rehabilitation of the injured hand. We are experts in removal of sutures, cleaning and redressing wounds as required. Our main aim is to promote healing as quickly as possible reducing the risk of scarring which is often the result of delayed healing. Our clinics have access to dressings that are appropriate to the “stage of wound healing” (ex. dressings to promote a moist wound environment, non-adherent dressings, etc). We aim to stream line dressings to allow early active movement of the hand reducing joint stiffness. When scarring does occur, we can educate the patient on massage techniques to reduce adhesions and recommend and supply various silicone products to help improve the appearance and pliability of scars.
