Dupuytren’s Contracture Therapy

, ,

Therapy for Hand Pain Atlanta GADupuytren’s Contracture is a slow developing hand deformity that affects the layer of tissue under the skin of the palm. This can be a debilitating condition because it progresses in a manner that cannot be corrected. The tissues in the palm will eventually form into a thick cord that will pull one or two of the fingers into a permanently bent position. If you have ever been without the use of one or two of your fingers for even a short amount of time due to injury, then you understand the complications that the permanent loss of use can have on everyday activities. Sovereign Rehabilitation is the trusted provider in and around Atlanta, Georgia for comprehensive physical and rehabilitation therapy. We have certified hand therapists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists that specialize in helping patients with Dupuytren’s Contracture find relief from their symptoms and learn coping mechanisms to perform daily activities.

Hip Surgery Recovery

, ,

Physical Therapy Clinic near Atlanta GARecovering from any type of surgery takes time and patience. When the hip has had surgery, whether to repair the joint or to fully replace the joint, the recovery time is often one of the longest surgical recoveries to endure. The hip joint receives a lot of wear and tear throughout life. Any time the leg or foot moves even the slightest amount, the hip joint is activated. Whether your surgery is minimally invasive or more complex, full recovery depends on how well you rehabilitate the joint. At Sovereign Rehabilitation, we provide full rehabilitation services for those who have undergone hip surgery. Recovery times vary from person to person, but one thing is certain: without proper rehabilitation, a full and effective recovery is all but impossible.

Shoulder Injury Rehabilitation

, ,

Physical Therapy Clinic near Atlanta GAThe shoulder is the most complicated joint in the body to rehabilitate because of its complex nature and the fact that it has more mobility and speed than any other joint. Shoulder problems and injuries can develop from everyday wear and tear on the joint, overuse of the joint, injury to the shoulder, or simply from the natural process of aging. Every time you move your arm, your shoulder moves. Because the shoulder is a ball and socket joint, it is designed to move easily. Because of its mobility, it is more likely to be injured or cause problems than almost any other joint in the body. Shoulder problems can be minor or serious, and at Sovereign Rehabilitation we offer physical and rehabilitation therapy to treat shoulder injuries. We specialize in helping patients with shoulder injuries recover fully and as quickly as possible.
