Prior to therapy, performing minor tasks such as typing were painful. After three months of therapy, I can type, perform household chores and play clarinet with my soft brace on, and I am pain-free for those tasks.

Hand therapy is a specialized area of occupational therapy. It focuses on treating orthopedic upper-extremity issues to optimize the functional use of the arm and hand.
Therapeutic exercise incorporates a wide range of activities that help you regain or maintain your strength, flexibility, balance, endurance, or stability.
This specialized form of treatment helps in reducing swelling, decreasing restriction, mobilizing joints, and increasing your range of motion.
Hand therapists are trained in ergonomics teaching as a means to help people with injury prevention and resolution.
If you are experiencing pain due to an injury or underlying condition, custom orthoses can help.
For many situations, we can help you from the comfort of your home or workplace with an easy and secure video call. Save yourself the time and expense of traveling to our physical location!
My therapist was able to help me reach my goals by having empathy and understanding of the emotional part of a life changing injury, while keeping me working toward achieving the most improvement.
I would describe my therapist as AMAZING!! The whole staff is incredible. Such helpful therapists.
I am so thankful for the help I received at Hands for Living. From the moment I first walked into the office I felt supported and listened to.
At Hands for Living, you will receive an expert, caring, and cost-effective evaluation of your injury or concern. We’ll provide an assessment and information about what has happened and what can be done to help, such as specialized exercises and instructions for improvement.
If needed, we’ll provide comfortable and precise custom orthoses (splints) to protect your elbow, wrist, or hand or improve motion. Great care will always be taken with wounds, scars, swelling, and injuries to tendon, nerve, bone, muscle or soft tissue. For future injuries, we also specialize in practical, ergonomic instructions.
