All of our Occupational Therapists are Hand Therapy Certification Commission (HTCC). Certified Hand Therapists are required to accumulate at least 4,000 hours of treatment for hand and upper extremity disorders as well as pass an exam that must be recertified every five years. Hand therapy is used to provide a wide range of care for anything from simple injuries to complex post-surgical rehabilitation.
Hand therapy treats any issue from the shoulder to the hand and may involve custom orthotics, range of motion exercises, soft tissue procedures, pain management, whirlpools, strength activities, dexterity training, wound or scare care and taping. It is often used in a treatment plan alongside physical or occupational therapy and is often used to treat chronic pain.
