Hand Therapy is the art and science of rehabilitation of the upper limb, which includes the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder girdle. It is a merging of Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy theory and practice that combines comprehensive knowledge of the structure of the upper limb with function and activity.
Using specialized skills in assessment, planning and treatment, Hand Therapists provide therapeutic interventions to prevent dysfunction, restore function and/or reverse the progression of pathology of the upper limb in order to enhance an individual’s ability to execute tasks and to participate fully in life situations.
In addition to patient care, hand therapists often assist providers by performing clinical testing to identify or confirm a diagnosis.
Our CHTs have received advanced training consisting of more than 4,000 clinical hours and have passed board certification testing by the Hand Therapy Certification Commission.
Additionally, our CHTs add certifications to their skill sets through ongoing education. They are committed to remaining current on the latest research and advancements, ensuring that we are using the most up-to-date techniques.
