Conditions or Injury of Hand, Wrist, Elbow and Shoulder
Because of the unique structure, anatomy and functional requirements of the hand, specialized training is necessary for proper rehabilitation therefore you should look for a Certified Hand Therapist, or CHT to provide your care. CHT's expertise includes the full upper quarter which is the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder. Hand Therapy is truly a subspecialty of orthopedics and the therapist utilizes specialized skills, assessment and treatment techniques to prevent dysfunction, restore function, and/or reverse the progression of pathology in the individuals with upper quarter disease or injury. Customized splinting is often performed especially for hand and wrist problems. We work closely with your physician to be sure appropriate treatment is being rendered for the specific surgical intervention you have received.
