What is shoulder therapy?

Occupational Therapists ask, “What matters to you?” not, “What’s the matter with you?” Through the therapeutic use of everyday activities OT’s (www.aota.org) help people participate in work, leisure, sport, self-care, and caring for family.

Occupational therapists conduct detailed evaluations, provide hands-on individualized treatments, and fabricate custom arm and hand orthotics when appropriate. Whether your pain is sports or work-related, post-surgical or chronic, prenatal or postnatal, our goal is to accelerate recovery and maximize function.

Together the OT and client set measurable goals to improve activity performance. The OT then develops a treatment plan and, with the help of our certified shoulder therapy assistant, implements care. Reassessments are performed regularly to measure progress and update the treatment plan.

What is a Certified Hand Therapist (CHT)?

A Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) is an occupational therapist or physical therapist who has a minimum of five years of clinical experience, including 4,000 hours or more in direct practice in hand therapy.

In addition, the Certified Hand Therapist has successfully passed a comprehensive test of advanced clinical skills and theory in upper quarter rehabilitation. Because of changes in the profession, every CHT is required to demonstrate continued professional development and competency by recertifying every five years. (www.htcc.org)
