Types of Treatment
Hand therapy is the art and science of rehabilitation of the upper limb, which includes the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder girdle.
It is a merging of occupational and physical therapy theory and practice that combines comprehensive knowledge of the structure of the upper limb with function and activity. Using specialized skills in assessment, planning and treatment, hand therapists provide therapeutic interventions to prevent dysfunction and/or reverse the progression of pathology of the upper limb in order to enhance an individual’s ability to execute tasks and to participate fully in life situations.
A Hand Therapist works closely with the physician, surgeon and patient to provide a continuity of care.
Treatment often begins within days of the injury or surgery and continues until the patient has returned to an independent, productive lifestyle.
Commonly Treated Conditions Include:
- Traumatic Injuries
- Shoulder Injuries
- Fractures and Dislocations
- Sports Injuries
- Tennis Elbow
- Trigger Finger
- Carpal Tunnel
- Cubital Tunnel
- Tendon and Nerve Injuries
- Dupuytren’s Contracture
- Complex Regional Pain Syndrome/RSD
- Ganglion Cysts
- TFCC Injuries
- Carpal Instabilities
- Ulnar Abutment Syndrome
- Open Wounds, Bites, Burns and Incision Care

My pain was very great when I started therapy. The staff was helped me work through the pain. I am thankful my balance has greatly improved and swelling and pain is almost gone completely. I’m thankful I can walk again. Very positive experience for me.
When I came in for my first visit a few days after my surgery my knee bend was only 85º. Now at my last visit my bend is 115º! I am doing stairs almost normally, it is awesome! I am using my stationary bike at home just like I did before.
