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.

What Can Hand Therapists Do For Their Patients?

Hand therapists can help bridge the gap from the medical management of your injury or condition to a successful recovery, allowing you to function normally in your daily life. 

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.
