Our certified hand therapists are helping hands.
Hallmarks of our Treatment Model include:
We provide high quality, cost-effective rehabilitation services for individuals with impaired function due to injury, cumulative trauma or disease. Services are provided utilizing a team approach with ongoing collaboration and communication between surgeons, therapists and other care team members. We strive to motivate each patient to be an active participant in the rehabilitation process through education and a focus on individualized treatment and home programs. Our goal is to maximize each patient's ability to return to productive activity, whether at home or at work, in a safe and timely manner. In addition to providing excellent care for our patients, ongoing research and evidence-based practice is promoted for our staff.
Our therapists are Certified Hand Therapists (CHT), in addition to being licensed Physical or Occupational Therapists. Requirements for becoming a CHT include a minimum of three years of clinical experience and passing a comprehensive test of advanced clinical skills and theory in upper quarter rehabilitation.
