Hand therapists can help you recover from conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, repetitive stress injuries, fractures, arthritis, crush injuries, reattachments, nerve injuries, tendon repairs and joint reconstruction procedures.
Your hand therapist can help you regain strength and function in your hands, wrists and elbows while protecting them from further injury or strain. We offer therapeutic exercises and procedures, ergonomic modifications, custom static and dynamic splint fabrication, prosthetic training, wound care and stretching and relaxation techniques to help you recuperate.
Hand therapists across the Sutter Health network are occupational and physical therapists with advanced training and clinical experience treating upper extremity conditions.
Many of our hand therapists are members of the American Society of Hand Therapists. In addition, Sutter’s network of sports medicine and rehabilitation centers are certified by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities as adhering to the highest industry standards of excellence.
