It’s all in the wrist… With April designated as Occupational Therapy Month, Naval Hospital Bremerton Physical Therapy department staff were afforded the opportunity by Ms. Teri Nyblom, NHB certified occupational therapist assistant to engage in a scenario simulating recovering, restoration and rehabilitation. Some of the most regular injuries seen by the Occupational Therapy clinic tend to be associated with the hand, forearm – and wrist - with lacerated tendon(s) on a finger(s), tendinitis – inflammation – fractures and carpal tunnel syndrome. Hospitalman Ashliyn Camacho, physical therapy technician, work on healing her scapholunate ligament [wrist], but there is still mild pain with movement. One of the best exercises for an injured scapholunate sprain/strain is the dart-thrower’s motion (Official Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Jennifer Benedict, NHB/NMRTC Bremerton public affairs).
