Hand Therapy | Northfield Hospital & Clinics

Hand Therapy

Hand therapy manages complex injuries and conditions of the upper extremities (shoulder, arm, elbow, forearm, wrist and hand). Hand therapists bridge the gap from medical management to successful recovery, allowing you to function normally in your daily life. Hand therapists provide preventative care and post-surgical rehabilitation for a wide variety of upper extremity disorders, from simple fingertip injuries to complex surgeries of the upper extremity. A hand therapist uses a variety of techniques and tools, including activity and exercise programs, fabrication of custom orthotics, management of pain and swelling and wound and scar care.
