Hand therapists are occupational therapists or physical therapists who, through extra training and experience, have specialized knowledge of upper extremity function. Using specialized skills in assessment and treatment, hand therapists work with their clients to prevent injury or impairment, restore functional activity, and enhance participation in daily life.” – American Society of Hand Therapists/Hand Therapy Certification Commission Our certified hand therapists provide postoperative rehabilitation as well as preventive, nonoperative or conservative evaluations and treatments for upper extremity injuries and/or dysfunctions.
