Physical Therapy -> Strength -> Upper Extremity

Upper Extremity

Our upper extremities is our arms. PT works both arms to make sure patients are strong enough to use both arms for any task, like climbing a ladder or crawling. PT works on upper extremity strength by doing exercises with the shoulders, upper arm, forearm, and hands.
