Hand therapy, according to the Hand Therapy Certification Commission (HTCC), is the art and science of rehabilitation of the upper quarter of the human body. 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.
