What is Hand Therapy?

 
Hand Therapy is the discipline that addresses injuries and conditions of the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder.

Certified hand therapists are either occupational or physical therapists who have specialized training in treating upper extremity conditions through advanced study. Our certified hand therapists work closely with physicians and patients to provide a continuum of care. Treatment often begins within days of the injury or surgery and continues until the client has returned to work and/or a productive lifestyle.
