Having limited use of your hands can make everyday tasks like writing, preparing food and driving challenging, but our hand therapy programs are tailored to alleviate your symptoms and help you regain the skills you need for daily activities. Whether you're recovering from an injury or living with a chronic condition like arthritis, our talented therapists treat a wide variety of upper extremity complaints by developing personalized care plans and providing specialized treatments like custom splinting, early functional reactivation and strength-enhancing exercises. There's also our Limited Use Hand Program, which focuses on transferring dominance or maximizing function to mitigate the effects of tendon repair, carpal tunnel syndrome, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) and other limiting conditions.
The duration of your hand therapy plan is determined by factors such as your age and motivation level — and it's important to remember that recovery takes time and patience — but you can be rest assured that many of our programs are covered by healthcare, compensation and insurance plans. Our healthcare specialists understand how to help hands heal and can restore your hand function to the greatest possible extent, empowering you to carry out the everyday activities that matter to you most.
