Hand therapy

Hand therapy touches more than the hands. We provide care for your entire upper extremity, meaning the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder. Our practice includes occupational and physical therapists who have advanced certification and additional years of training in therapy tailored specifically to the upper extremity. We are a highly collaborative team with decades of experience treating all hand, arm or shoulder injuries and disorders.

Some of our services include:

  • Preventative, non-operative, or conservative treatment
  • Management of acute or chronic pain
  • Customized orthotic (splint) fabrication
  • Wound, burn or scar care
  • Edema (swelling) control
  • Joint and Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) with HawkGrips
  • Desensitization and/or sensory re-education following nerve injury or trauma
  • Prescribing home exercise programs to increase range of motion, strength and coordination
  • Retraining of daily living skills through adaptive techniques and equipment
  • Conditioning in preparation of returning to work
  • Manual therapy including myofascial techniques, IASTM and cupping

No pain, no gain? No thanks.

We value treatment that advances your recovery in a manner that is as pain free as possible. We do this by using a variety of cutting-edge therapies, such as cold laser, electrical stimulation, fluidotherapy, paraffin wax, and IASTM.

Our heads lend a hand

As part of an academic research center, our therapists participate in interdisciplinary projects and regularly work with orthopaedic hand surgeons on research studies. We lend a hand by putting together the brightest minds and most compassionate hearts in service to our patients.
