“Most folks don’t realize how much an injured hand, or even one injured finger, can impact
their ability to perform daily activities. I enjoy helping people recover their vital hand use. I especially love making splints and educating my clients on creative OT solutions for regaining function – that may include Covid-safe manual therapy or instruction in breathing
techniques to manage pain.”
