The hand is an amazing, complex part of the human body, essential for all of our daily self-care, work and everyday activities. Whether writing with a pen, typing on a computer or turning a screwdriver, our hands are important tools in our daily lives. When the hand and upper extremity are unable to function properly due to accidents, disease, repetitive stress and conditions from birth or acquired syndromes, a specialized approach is essential. Hand therapy focuses in on rehabilitation of the hand and upper limbs and is the merging of occupational therapy and physical therapy theory and practice. Several of our highly skilled physical and occupational therapists go on to become certified hand therapists and are proficient in the treatment of hand and upper extremity pathologies, from the acute to the chronic. Certified hand therapists work directly with the referring physician and the patient to treat the following conditions, but not limited to:

  • Tendon injuries
  • Peripheral nerve injuries
  • Crush injuries
  • Repetitive motion disorder
