Raleigh Hand to Shoulder Center in Raleigh, NC

Our Therapists

Hand and shoulder therapy is critical in the recovery of many upper extremity conditions. Rehabilitation of the hand and arm after an injury or surgery requires specialized skills and expertise. As procedures in hand and orthopedic surgery have improved over the past several years, the practice of hand therapy continues to advance as well. 

Hand therapy has developed into a field of its own, blending important aspects of physical and occupational therapy into a unique profession. Therapists aim to restore a patient’s function by improving joint range of motion, tendon gliding, and strength, and decreasing pain, swelling, and scar tissue. This is achieved through patient education, guided exercises, stretches, scar management, custom splinting and therapeutic modalities, such as fluidotherapy, iontophoresis, and ultrasound.
