Occupational therapy is an integral part of your recovery process. This is true whether your injury or condition is non-operative or requires surgery.
What is occupational therapy?
Occupational Therapy is a type of rehabilitation performed by an occupational therapist on patients with conditions affecting the hands and upper extremities.
Therapy is performed providers with a high degree of specialization requiring continuing education and, often, advanced certification.
This enables the hand therapist to hasten a patient’s return to a productive lifestyle.

Patients who require occupational therapy may have been affected by an accident or trauma leaving them with wounds, injured tendons, nerves, or fractures. Others include patients who suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow (elbow tendonitis), as well as from chronic conditions such as arthritis.
