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). It uses a number of therapeutic interventions to help return a person to their highest level of function. It evolved from the need for a specialist with the knowledge and experience required to manage the challenging recovery of complex hand and upper extremity injuries.
Hand therapy is used for rehabilitation of the hand and wrist. Hand Therapists provide therapeutic interventions to improve hand function and help you participate in everyday activities. A hand specialist will have advanced certification as a Certified Hand Therapist (CHT).
Our team of hand therapists, comprised of occupational therapists and physiotherapists, offer specialized rehabilitation services to patients of all ages with conditions and disorders of the upper limb (hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder).
