Occupational and Hand Therapy
Occupational Therapy involves the rehabilitation of patients who have difficulty performing the activities of daily living, including dressing and grooming as well as work activities, providing treatment design to maximize patient function. Occupational therapists also treat hand function and injury for cumulative trauma. Our hand therapists specialize in the rehabilitation of patients who might have been affected by an accident or trauma leaving them with scars, injured tendons or nerves, fractures, or those who have cumulative trauma disorders – such as tennis elbow or carpal tunnel syndrome. A hand therapist provides training and education on body mechanics, flexibility and conditioning. This program includes customized splint fabrication.
