Hand Therapy

At Summit Orthopedics, we work closely with the physicians to provide state of the art treatment techniques.  Hand therapists bridge the gap from medical management of upper extremity conditions to successful recovery, allowing individual to function normally in their daily lives.

Therapy Care during COVID-19

  • We are currently operating in a reduced/essential staff model to do our part in the fight against this virus.
  • We are offering video visits as well as a limited number of in-person visits in Eagan and Vadnais Heights for those with urgent needs due to conditions such as a recent surgery, fracture, or dislocation.

Advanced Hand Therapy Expertise

Hand therapists provide non-operative interventions, preventative care and post-surgical rehabilitation for a wide variety of upper extremity disorders.  A hand therapist employs years of experience, a team approach, techniques and tools, custom splint/orthotic fabrication for management of pain, swelling, wound and scar care.
