CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- Comprised of 27 bones, three main nerves and over 30 individual muscles, our hands are incredibly complex structures. That's why when dealing with hand, wrist or elbow injuries, seeking the experienced care offered by NWH at Chappaqua Crossing can make the difference in pain-free living.
When a hand or wrist isn't operating properly, simple everyday tasks such as opening doors or sending text messages can be difficult. Thanks to Northern Westchester Hospital's team of certified hand specialists, patients are able to regain mobility and reduce or eliminate pain through a variety of non-surgical treatments.
"I treat people with upper extremities and hand injuries," said Michele Comen, a certified hand specialist at NWH at Chappaqua Crossing. This includes patients with fractures, lacerations or other wounds, as well as those suffering from overuse injuries such as tennis or golf elbow and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Once diagnosed, NWH offers several treatment options for those with hand, wrist or elbow pain. Manual therapy techniques increase joint mobility and flexibility, while low level laser treatment and ultrasound therapy use invisible, painless waves to help accelerate the healing process.
In addition to these healing approaches, patients at NWH at Chappaqua Crossing return to the outpatient center again and again thanks the atmosphere. "Our patients really like coming here because they see the camaraderie that all the patients have together," said Comen.
