Hand therapy is defined as the art and science of rehabilitation of upper limb dysfunction. This includes disorders of the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder girdle. Hand therapists are experts in the application of physical medicine principles, employing theory and techniques from both physical and occupational disciplines. Hand therapy assists the patient in regaining function and enhancing the individual's ability to fully participate in the demands of daily life, employment, and leisure activities.
Hand therapy appointments can be made Monday – Friday through the Physical Therapy Center.
