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.

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.

My therapist is very professional, helpful, concerned about me and my progress, which has me very close now to our goals. The facility is state of the art. It's a pleasure to go there for treatment.

Have had therapy in the past at Summit, and have always enjoyed my experience there with all staff members.
