Hand Therapy

Hand Therapy

Hand therapy is the art and science of rehabilitation of the upper limb,  which includes the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder girdle. As stated by ASHT, specialized assessment skills, planning and treatment, permit the hand therapist to provide therapeutic intervention to prevent dysfunction,  restore function and/or reverse the progression of pathology.
