It’s easy to see how much of your daily living activities rely on the use of your hands and arms. When an injury or disease limits the abilities of the hand or arm, it’s important to find specialized care. Hand therapy includes specialized rehabilitative care for the upper extremities, including fractures, tendon/muscle issues, nerve injuries, work-related injuries, sports related injuries, and post surgical rehab.
A Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) is a physical or occupational therapist who has at least five years clinical experience and has passed a comprehensive test of advanced clinical skills and theory in shoulder, arm, and hand rehabilitation.
Because the complex anatomy of the arm and hand often requires intricate and sometimes microscopic surgery, it is especially important for the patient to be assured that their hand therapist is well trained in the latest post operative rehabilitation techniques and treatments.
