Cook Children's hand therapy team focuses on the art and science of evaluating and treating injuries or conditions of the upper extremity (shoulder, elbow, forearm, wrist and hand).
Hand therapists are licensed or registered occupational or physical therapists. They have advanced training and experience in treating patients with conditions affecting the upper extremity. At Cook Children's, our hand therapists have further specialization in treating children with congenital and acquired conditions of the upper extremity.
We have two certified hand therapists (CHT) on staff at Cook Children's. To obtain the CHT credential, a hand therapist must practice as an occupational or physical therapist for a minimum of three years. In that time, they must accumulate 4,000 hours of upper extremity experience. They also must pass a rigorous certification examination to demonstrate their competency in the practice of hand therapy.
If your child is referred to our program, we will assess their needs and provide specialized plan of care. Our hand therapists utilize a number of therapeutic interventions. If needed, we can also fabricate custom splints and orthotics to help your child reach their highest level of function. The most common referrals we see are:
