The hands are a very important part of the body, allowing us to touch, feel and enjoy everyday activities. Losing the capabilities of your hands can greatly hinder how you interact with others and live your day-to-day life. Our compassionate staff at Wake Orthopaedics strives to offer personalized care that gently restores patients' quality of life.
What is a hand therapist? A hand therapist is an occupational or physical therapist who, through advanced continuing education, clinical experience and integration of knowledge in anatomy, physiology and kinesiology, has become proficient in treatment of pathological upper extremity conditions resulting from trauma, disease, congenital or acquired deformity. At Wake Orthopaedics our highly skilled team of Certified Hand Therapists (CHT) have over 75 years of combined experience and utilize the most up-to-date treatment techniques to provide superior therapy. Our CHT's attend local and national seminars and are all members of the American Society of Hand Therapy (ASHT) to ensure that they are skilled in the latest therapy programs and practices.
At Wake Orthopaedics Hand Therapy Clinics, we strive to provide individualized 1:1 care to ensure optimal recovery from injuries to the hand, wrist, forearm, and elbow. Your Certified Hand Therapist will work directly with your surgeon to create a specialized plan of care unique to you and your needs. This personalized approach allows for a seamless return to the things you love and an improved quality of life, faster.
