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.
At Cook Children's we have 2 certified hand therapists. 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.
Hand therapists assess the needs of the patient and provide specialized care for the upper extremity. They utilize a number of therapeutic interventions, as well as fabricating custom splints and orthotics, to help their patient reach their highest level of function.
