Hand Therapy

More Information Coming Soon.

Our Certified Hand Therapists are specially trained to evaluate and administer treatment of the hand and upper quadrant in order for our patients to regain the ability to perform work, life and daily living activities.

Hand Therapists utilize intricate knowledge of the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder to prevent dysfunction, reverse the progression of disease, and promote healing of injured structures to restore function. The goal of a certified hand therapist (CHT) is to plan and execute treatment that will return patients treated to the highest possible level of independence in daily activities. 

You do NOT have to be a patient of a TSAOG physician to visit us for Physical Therapy or Hand Therapy. Call us today to schedule your appointment.

What is a Certified Hand Therapist (CHT)?

To become a Certified Hand Therapist (CHT), a physical or occupational therapist must be in clinical practice for minimum of 5 years. This must include at least 4,000 hours of direct practice in hand therapy. The therapist must then pass a comprehensive exam of the advanced skills required to properly treat the upper extremity. Once certification is obtained, the therapist must then re-certify every 5 years. The requires attendance of relevant continuing education courses and knowledge of advancements in clinical practice to stay current with the latest treatment options.
