A hand therapist is an occupational or physical therapist who, through advanced study and training, specializes in rehabilitating patients with conditions affecting their hands and upper extremities.
Who does a Hand and Occupational Therapist Serve?
Hand and Occupational Therapists serve patients of all ages and work with a variety of upper extremity disorders. For example, patients who may have been affected by an accident or trauma leaving them with scars, burns, injured tendons or nerves, fractures, or amputations. Therapists also treat patients who are disabled from the effects of repetitive motion disorders - such as tennis elbow and carpal tunnel syndrome. Many others seeking the care of a hand therapist may suffer from such chronic problems as arthritis or neurological conditions.
