Therapy and Rehabilitation for Upper Extremity Injuries in Athletes



Therapy and Rehabilitation for Upper Extremity Injuries in Athletes



Hand Clinics 33(1): 207-220



The approach to rehabilitation of upper extremity injuries in athletes differs from traditional rehabilitation protocols. In general, athletes have higher functional demands and wish to return to competitive sport in a timely manner. Comprehensive rehabilitation must therefore be balanced with a timely and safe return to sport. Several rehabilitation programs and adjunctive therapies are available to hasten convalescence while minimizing the athlete's risks of reinjury. Here, we review techniques for soft tissue mobilization and strength training in athletic populations. We also discuss orthotics, taping, and alternative therapies used in rehabilitation and evaluate the evidence in support of these modalities.
