What is Hand Therapy?

Hand therapy is the art and science of evaluating and treating injuries and conditions of the upper extremity (shoulder, arm, elbow, forearm, wrist and hand). Hand therapy uses a number of therapeutic interventions to help you return to your highest level of function.

A Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) has practiced hand therapy for at least three years while accumulating at least 4000 hours of hand and upper extremity experience in addition to passing a rigorous certification examination.
