Why should I see a Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) for my injury?

Treatment for the upper extremities is a highly specialized skill, and your choice of therapist is critical to your recovery and your ability to restore or retain motion and function. The credentials that a CHT (Certified Hand Therapist) holds ensures that your therapist has the highest possible level of competency and the most up-to-date knowledge and expertise for your care.

Injuries to the upper extremities are very common but can be complex. The certified hand therapists at Happy Hands can evaluate and treat almost any issue with the upper extremities. We can provide non-operative intervention, preventative care, pre-surgical strengthening, and post-surgical rehabilitation.
