If you are dealing with discomfort in your hand or recovering from surgery, you might need a hand splint. Splints for hands can help with healing because they ensure that your hands and fingers remain in the same position. Similarly to when a bone has broken and you need a cast for the bone to set, a hand splint keeps your muscles and tendons in a resting position. The tendons, ligaments, and muscles in the wrists and hands are delicate. If they’ve been injured, they need to rest in order to heal properly.
So where can you get a hand splint that’s created specifically for your physical needs?
Splints for Hands: Uniquely Made for You
At Desert Hand and Physical Therapy, we fabricate over 200 splints for hands and braces per month. You read that right: over 200 per month. We also pride ourselves on competitive pricing.
This unique aspect of our therapy service allows us to create splints for patients with upper extremity pain or injury, which could include any of the following:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Other post-operative upper extremity conditions
Sure, you could buy other splints, but none would be constructed by a certified hand therapist who can make it specifically for your needs. We have even fabricated a special hand splint that still allowed a patient to play piano while wearing it. What can we say? We like to get creative.
Desert Hand Therapy is committed to serving your specific hand health needs.
Aside from our ability to create custom-made splints, we also strive to provide the best care in hand health with therapy. Our goal is to heal you as quickly as possible so that you can get back to the activities you love. We’re always looking for more success stories!
Additionally, some of the hand therapy treatments we provide include:

As always, consult a doctor first if you have hand pain.
If your hand hurts, it’s important that you discuss hand therapy with your doctor. While hand therapy is an excellent alternative to pain medication and has been proven to help speed up healing, you should always be under the guidance of a licensed and certified therapist.
At Desert Hand and Physical Therapy, we have certified hand therapists and physical therapists on staff who could assess your physical condition and create a plan of healing and strength just for you – not to mention, an excellent custom-made splint!
