This certification is obtained through advanced education, experience, and integration of anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology. Our certified hand therapists are experts at diagnosis and treatment of any condition of the upper extremity, including the shoulder, arm, elbow, forearm, wrist, and hand.
OSR Physical Therapy’s certified hand therapists can help patients rehabilitate from surgery or injury of any area of the upper extremity. Additionally, our certified hand therapists can help patients who suffer from chronic conditions like arthritis by addressing joint protection and creating programs that build strength and flexibility. Additionally, the certified hand therapists at OSR Physical Therapy can work with patients to learn how to adapt or adjust their environment or recommend assistive devices to decrease pain and increase function.
For those patients who have a neurological condition (i.e., a stroke) that has affected the use of their hand, our team can work specifically on programs that are meant to rebuild strength and usability.
