People who have had surgery or who have suffered an injury that limits the movements of their shoulders, elbows, wrists, or hands benefit from specialized therapy.

The complex system of muscles, ligaments, and tendons that allow your hands and fingers to grasp objects and your shoulders and wrists to rotate need a unique level of care.

A hand and upper extremity therapist knows how each joint and muscle connects to the next create the intricate movements of your arms and hands. He or she can help you gain and maintain a healthy range-of-motion.

Advanced care requires expert knowledge

Because the movements of your upper body are so critical to living independently, hand therapists are required to take continuing education classes. Hand therapy specialists must be re-certified every five years to make sure patients receive the most advanced care possible.
