Hand Therapy

Hand Therapy

Fremont Therapy Group and Rocky Mountain Sports & Physical Therapy have two Certified Hand Therapists (CHT), a nationally recognized designation which means the therapist has at least five years and 4,000 hours of clinical practice in this specialty. We provide individualized upper extremity treatments related to injury, surgery, disability and disease. These customized treatment plans are based on proven scientific research. By initiating therapy sessions promptly after an injury or surgery, patients can significantly reduce complications related to scar tissue, joint stiffness and nerve irritation.

Patients suffering from an injury or disease that affects the hand, wrist, arm, elbow or shoulder can be assisted with this therapy. Following a thorough evaluation, a Certified Hand Therapist will develop an individualized treatment plan for each client including preventative, non-operative or conservative treatment, management of acute or chronic pain, desensitization following nerve injury or trauma, sensory re-education after nerve injury, design and implementation of home exercise program to increase motion, dexterity and/or strength, splint fabrication for prevention or correction of injury, training in the performance of daily life skills through adapted methods and equipment, and conditioning prior to returning to work.

Custom Fabricated Splints

We provide custom fabricated splints to meet the unique needs of each client in terms of both purpose and fit. These splints accommodate variations in anatomy and joint alignment and the thermoplastic material used is easier to keep clean than off-the-shelf alternatives. As treatments progress, the splints can continue to be adjusted and modified for proper fit and function.
