What is Hand Therapy?
Certified hand therapists (CHTs) are physical or occupational therapists who demonstrate a personal dedication to the profession of hand therapy and a desire for advanced competency. They have the highest level of training in the profession for the treatment of hands, wrists, elbows and shoulders. Many medical professionals recognize certified hand therapy credentials as a benchmark for programs requiring clinical expertise for the management of injuries and medical conditions to the upper extremities.
CHTs will evaluate your specific injury and provide individualized treatment for both acute and chronic conditions.
With superior therapeutic interventions, you may be able to reverse dysfunctional pathologies and restore normal function in your hands.
