Hand Therapy

A hand therapist is an occupational therapist who specializes in treating patients with conditions affecting the hands, wrists, elbows and shoulders. Within days of your injury or surgery, our hand therapists begin working closely with you and your doctor on a treatment plan that will get you back to your normal routine as quickly as possible.
