Many patients seeking the care of a Hand Therapist also suffer from such chronic problems as arthritis or a neurological condition.A Hand Therapist works with the patient - in any situation - to provide a continuum of care. This often starts within days of the injury or surgery right through to the patients return to work and/or a productive lifestyle.
