Hand therapy is a specialized area of Occupational Therapy that primarily focuses on the treatment of injuries to the hand, wrist, and elbow. We treat a wide variety of hand therapy needs, from post-operative to preventative. Our OTs utilize various techniques and tools to tailor treatment to each patient’s specific needs. These treatments can include manual therapy, post-operative care, exercise programs, occupation-based activities, desensitization, physical agent modalities, and custom splint fabrication.

 

At TherapySouth, our hand therapists work one-on-one with you to provide positive rehabilitation outcomes to restore your quality of life.
