Hand injuries make everyday tasks such as bathing and eating nearly impossible. At Phoenix, we provide physical therapists who are hand therapy specialists and who can provide hand rehabilitation intervention that not only enables the hand to function well, but also prevents further injury.
Hand physical therapy can treat:
- Fractures of the hand or arm
- Lacerations and amputations
- Surgical repair of tendons and nerves
- Conditions such as tendonitis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome
While physical therapists are schooled and trained in hand therapy, someone possessing an advanced certification in hand and upper extremity is identified as a Certified Hand Therapist (CHT). CHTs are specifically trained to evaluate and treat conditions affecting the upper extremity and hands through 3 years experience, 4,000 hours of upper extremity treatment and completion of an exam.
