Why See A Hand Therapist?

The American Society of Hand Therapists explains it as follows:

“A Certified Hand Therapist is an occupational or physical therapist by profession with at least five years of experience, plus 4,000 hours of hand therapy practice (upper extremity rehabilitation). A CHT must have passed a certification examination that demonstrates knowledge of all areas of hand therapy before being granted the right to use the CHT designation. Hand therapists must renew their credential every five years through continued education and participation in hand therapy to continue using the CHT designation.”
