OUR HAND THERAPY TREATMENT

Hand Therapy is the art and science of rehabilitation of the shoulder, arm, and hand. It merges comprehensive knowledge of the upper extremity with the skills and therapeutic techniques of the professions of Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy.
This specialty was developed in response to advancements in technology and surgical techniques that have enabled greater functional restoration of injured upper limbs.
