The first question is: why see a hand Therapist at all?
Hands are wonderful, complex things. We rely on them in many ways, and some of us make our living with them. When hands present problems, they need specialized care and attention from expertly-trained professionals. So if you have any hand concerns or problems, a properly certified and trained Hand Therapist is a good choice for treatment.
That leads to the second question, which is: why see OUR hand Therapist?
