Do you struggle with a disease, disorder or other limitation that makes it difficult to engage in everyday activities? If so, you may benefit from hand therapy services.
At Countryside Orthopaedics, our Hand Therapy services center around the specialty of hand therapy. Hand therapy addresses injuries and conditions of the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder. Hand therapists, certified by Hand Therapy Certification Commission (HTCC), are either occupational or physical therapists who have specialized training in treating upper extremity conditions through advanced study.
Our hand therapists work closely with physicians and clients to provide a continuum of care. Treatment often begins within days of the injury or surgery and continues until the client has returned to work and/or a productive lifestyle.
