Dr Zisman treats these patients with hand acupuncture, therapeutic hand massage and exercises and uses paraffin to facilitate flexibility to patient s who suffer from repetitive hand movements.
Paraffin wax baths of 125 to 135 degrees Fahrenheit are a form of heat therapy used for muscle, tendon and ligament ailments. Commonly used by therapists to treat hands, elbows or feet for bursitis, tendonitis, sprains and pulled muscles.
The heat helps increase blood flow, relax the muscles, improve joint stiffness and reduce pain caused from arthritis, osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia or other rheumatic diseases. It also helps soften hardened skin, increases the skin’s elasticity, allowing for increased movement and mobility of the hands.
