What is Hand Therapy?
Hand therapy focuses on rehabilitation of the hand and upper limb. Besides healing your hands, it can also involve treating the wrist, elbow, and shoulder girdle. Using a combination of physiotherapy and occupational therapy techniques, hand therapy helps overcome dysfunctions that limit abilities.
