Hands-On Expertise for Better Health
A Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) is an occupational therapist or physical therapist who has a minimum of five years of clinical experience, including 4,000 hours or more in direct practice in hand therapy. In addition, a Certified Hand Therapist has successfully passed a comprehensive test of advanced clinical skills and theory in upper quarter rehabilitation. Because of changes in the profession, every CHT is required to demonstrate continued professional development and competency by recertifying every five years. This credential distinguishes an occupational or physical therapist as someone with the highest professional credential in the specialty of shoulder, elbow, wrist or hands rehabilitation.
If your hands hurt, if you have an increasing weakness with activities you normally do, or if you are recovering from shoulder, hand or elbow surgery, you will need a therapist with advanced skills in the rehabilitation of the upper extremity. Whether you have arthritis, a sports-related injury, rotator cuff repair, tendonitis, or any kind of a pain in the entire arm, a CHT is an expert needed for return to your fullest abilities. Achieve Rehab is the only provider of rehabilitation in a 5 county area around Great Bend with a certified hand therapist.
