Abstract
Background: The human being is an active creature whose hands perform many daily activities in a multifaceted interaction. Occupational therapists working with extensor tendon injuries of the hand need knowledge about treatments and evidence in their practice. Method: A literature review of eight articles was made to describe occupational therapy interventions and its benefits and disadvantages to the people with extensor tendon injuries and evidence of rehabilitation in an early stage. Result: It exist a variety of rehabilitation programs and orthotic interventions with similar effects, but disadvantages are not highlighted in these studies and people's views of the result of the interventions is given little attention. Discussion: The... (More)
Background: The human being is an active creature whose hands perform many daily activities in a multifaceted interaction.

Result: It exist a variety of rehabilitation programs and orthotic interventions with similar effects, but disadvantages are not highlighted in these studies and people's views of the result of the interventions is given little attention. Discussion: The rehabilitation concept that is considered easiest for the treated person and occupational therapist to perform can be chosen since none of the studied concepts can be regarded as having more evidence. High-quality studies are needed to investigate the activity capacity of the rehabilitated persons and their own view of the result after completion of treatment. It needs assessment of rehabilitated persons compliance to advice and treatment and analyzes of the treatments disadvantages. (Less)
Abstract (Swedish)
Bakgrund: Människan är en aktiv varelse vars händer utför många dagliga aktiviteter i en mångfacetterad process. Arbetsterapeuter som möter personer med extensorsenskador på handen behöver kunskap om behandlingsmetoder och evidens i sin praxis vid rehabiliteringen. Metod: En litteraturöversikt innehållande åtta artiklar gjordes för att beskriva arbetsterapiinterventioner och dess fördelar och nackdelar för personer med extensorsenskador och evidens för rehabilitering i ett tidigt skede. Resultat: Det finns en mängd olika rehabiliteringskoncept med liknande effektresultat men där nackdelar inte lyfts fram i studierna och personernas aktivitetsförmåga och egna syn på interventioner och rehabiliteringsresultatet får liten uppmärksamhet....

Resultat: Det finns en mängd olika rehabiliteringskoncept med liknande effektresultat men där nackdelar inte lyfts fram i studierna och personernas aktivitetsförmåga och egna syn på interventioner och rehabiliteringsresultatet får liten uppmärksamhet. Diskussion: Det rehabiliteringskoncept som anses lättast för behandlad person och arbetsterapeut att genomföra kan väljas då inget av studerade koncept kan anses ha större evidens än något annat. Det behövs högkvalitativa studier som undersöker de rehabiliterade personernas aktivitetsförmåga och egna uppfattning av resultatet efter genomförd behandling. Vidare behöver personernas följsamhet till råd och insatser i rehabiliteringen studeras och eventuella nackdelar med rehabiliteringskoncepten lyftas fram. (Less)
