Hand therapy is a special treatment for the hand and upper extremity (shoulder, arm, wrist, and hand). A board certified hand therapist (CHT) has rigorous training and several hours of hand treatment prior to sitting for the board exam. CHTs specialize in treating both surgical and nonsurgical conditions.
Megan Russell and Kelsea Sonnier are our CHTs. As occupational hand therapists, they are passionate about treating the entire upper extremity (shoulder to hand) and helping client's heal from a variety of injuries. They have experience treating repetitive injuries, clients recovering from strokes, fractures, and traumatic injuries such as tendon repairs. Hand therapists use orthotic splints to help clients heal and recover, as well as manual therapy techniques and individualized exercise programs. They have worked with clients of all ages.
Hand Therapy is performed in our Cullowhee office!
