Certified Hand Therapy

Whether used to treat chronic pain or in recovery following an injury, hand therapy is a branch of physical & occupational therapy designed specifically to relieve pain and increase function in the hands & fingers, sometimes also including arm ailments. While the core principles of physical therapy are still employed with hand therapy, the hands & fingers provide unique challenges that require equally unique solutions.

What is Hand Therapy?

 

Compared to other parts of the body treated by physical therapists, the hands & fingers contain an increased number of bones, joints, and nerves, while also being more complex mechanical parts of the body. Coupled with the hands’ & fingers’ importance to a person’s daily function, it’s easy to see why hand therapy stands on its own as a physical therapy specialty.

 

To that end, we offer a word of warning. Be wary of physical therapy facilities that offer hand therapy without employing certified hand therapy specialists. As we mentioned, these are complex problems that require detailed & specific solution
