What is so special about Certified Hand Therapists?

  • A Certified Hand Therapist (C.H.T.) is an occupational/physical therapist who specializes in the treatment of hands.
  • They must have a minimum of 5 years postgraduate experience with at least 4,000 hours in hand therapy and have successfully passed the Hand Therapy Certification Commission exam in order to obtain these credentials.
  • CHT’s are dedicated professionals who have a commitment to meet the highest standards of their profession. The hand and arm have an extremely intricate anatomy and complexity. Rehabilitation of the hand and arm requires in-depth knowledge and up-to-date techniques.
  • Certified Hand Therapists have the highest level of competence in the rehabilitation of upper extremity injuries.
  • Certified Hand Therapists are able to initiate treatment immediately following surgery often while stitches are still in place. Early referral to a hand therapist is effective in preventing further surgeries and obtaining an optimal outcome.
