Hand therapy treats conditions and injuries that affect the hands and arms, including the wrists, elbows and shoulders. Our team of hand therapists – made up of occupational therapists and physical therapists – have specialized training in surgical and nonsurgical therapies that improve hand and upper limb abilities. Occupational therapists use different types of exercises and treatments to help children with self-care, play and school activities.
Pediatric hand therapists teach your child exercises and stretches to improve strength, mobility, range of motion and positioning in their hands and arms. The therapists also provide a wide variety of treatments and services, including splints, taping, manual therapy, joint mobilization, pain management and sensory reeducation.
We help children from infancy through young adulthood who are recovering from injuries or surgery or have congenital (present at birth) conditions. We work with your child to help relieve pain, weakness and other symptoms in their upper limbs so they can enjoy an active life.
