Certified Hand Therapy

“Hand Therapy is the art and science of rehabilitation of the upper extremity of the human body. 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. At Orlando Health Orlando Regional Medical Center Institute for Advanced Rehabilitation, our highly skilled certified therapists work closely with physicians and patients. Therapy often starts within days of injury or surgery and continues through the patient’s return to work and/or a productive lifestyle.
