Back in Action Certified Hand Therapists/Occupational Therapists average between 15-20 years of experience successfully treating complex cases in their field.
Hand Therapy is the art and science of rehabilitation of the upper limb, which includes the hand, wrist and elbow. It is a merging of occupational therapy and physical therapy theory and practice that combines comprehensive knowledge of the structure of the upper limb with function and activity. Using specialized skills in assessment, planning and treatment, hand therapists provide therapeutic interventions to prevent dysfunction, restore function and/or reverse the pathology of the upper limb in order to enhance an individual’s ability to execute tasks and to participate fully in life situations. Often times hand therapy may be prescribed following surgery to expedite the recovery process.
