Hand Therapy

At Doctors of Physical Therapy, our clinicians are specialists in Hand Therapy who provide exceptional and personalized experiences for all our patients.  Our therapy staff has also gone one step further in obtaining, or currently pursuing, the Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) certification.  The CHT certification has a rigorous curriculum focusing on solely hand, arm, and shoulder rehabilitation techniques.  Moreover, our specialists create custom splints that meet our patient’s physician requirements. These splints can provide support and/or increase joint mobility as your injury or condition heals.  Each of our therapists work and communicate closely with attending physicians.   Patients are often beginning their rehabilitation within days of office visits or post-surgical procedures.
