Hand Therapy Week

This week 6/2-6/8 is Hand Therapy Week!  ASHT(American Society of Hand Therapists) is celebrating by offering tips, educational opportunities, and acknowledgement of deserving OT and PT's promoting the profession.  Hand therapy is a unique area of rehabilitation where occupational and physical therapists both work as hand therapists.  Many have studied diligently and sat for the examination to become a CHT or Certified Hand Therapist.  CHT's are skilled in rehab of the upper extremity secondary to trauma and other conditions and are experts at custom fabricating thermoplastic splints.

MedRehabWeb is celebrating this week by promoting hand and upper extremity course opportunities.
