Treatment of hands is a specialized craft, due to the many intricate movements and functions of the hands. SandhillsPT has a full time board certified Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) to provide splint-making, casting, stretching, scar mobilization, and post-surgical therapy.
“A CHT is an occupational therapist or a physical therapist who has a minimum of three years of clinical experience, including 4,000 hours or more in direct practice in hand therapy. In addition, the CHT has successfully passed a comprehensive test of advanced 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.” – Hand Therapy Certification Commission
