Many programs offer Hand Therapy, but this is not the same as offering Certified Hand Therapy and also not the same as providing one-on-one care by a therapist. Certified Hand Therapists must practice and accumulate a certain amount of hours in treatment of the hand and upper extremity and pass a certification exam. CHT’s specialize in treating hand and upper extremity conditions.
They work closely with orthopedic and general surgeons to ensure maximal outcome of patients. Through advanced education, clinical experience, and knowledge in anatomy, physiology, and Kineseology, they are proficient in the treatment of upper extremity conditions.
Certified Hand Therapists provide non-operative interventions, preventative care, and post-surgical rehabilitation for a wide variety of Upper extremity disorders. This includes patients with chronic conditions, such as arthritis, neurological conditions, such as stroke, carpal tunnel syndrome and sports and orthopedic injuries.
Our therapists use a variety of techniques and tools, including activity and exercises programs, custom splinting, management of pain and swelling, and wound and scar care. We can help you with complaints that are both recent and chronic, helping you make a return to a higher quality of life in which you can be more productive.
