Desensitization and Sensory Re-education help patients regain full hand and upper extremity function

Sometimes, the healing process involves more than the closing of a wound. Continued pain or a hypersensitivity to touch, pressure, or temperature can all occur after an injury. Desensitization slowly introduces the sensitive areas to normal forms of touch and temperature to reacclimate them during recovery. Sensory re-education helps to adapt the brain’s response to injured areas by retraining accurate assessments of object shape, size, texture, and location. In other words, at IRG, we can help you feel right again.
