Hand therapy can help when pain or disfigurement from arthritis interferes with your life.
Certified hand therapists are physical and occupational therapists who specialize in helping people maintain use of their hands. These therapists teach strategies that help patients develop ways to preserve joints, minimize pain, and become more efficient with their hand motion.
In addition, hand therapists can help preserve your hand strength and increase your range of motion — so day-to-day tasks are easier to manage.
