Hands-On Hand Therapy

You rely on your hands every single day to perform important tasks. Not only can our hands become stiff as we age, injuries and accidents can cause us to lose functionality in our fingers, hands, and arms. Our certified hand therapists at Manual Orthopedic Physical Therapy can help you address these concerns.

Our hand therapy program begins with a 60-minute evaluation that provides us with plenty of time to examine each patient and provide you with a collaborative treatment plan. During this meeting, you will receive individualized goals based on your unique needs, as well as a home exercise program that is tailored just for you.

Subsequent treatment sessions include 30 minutes of hands-on time with a certified hand therapist or occupational therapist, followed by a therapeutic exercise program that integrates current techniques and modalities that are supported by evidence-based research to help you achieve your goals.

Our skilled hand therapy team can advise and provide you with proper custom orthoses or prefabricated splints for the upper extremity to compliment your treatment plan.

Treating a Comprehensive Range of Injuries

MOPT treats a comprehensive range of conditions associated with the upper extremity.

It’s our goal at MOPT to maintain open and consistent communication with you throughout the rehabilitation process, which includes providing you with knowledge about your condition, as well as, reassessing your condition as you make progress.

Hands down the best physical therapy facility and treatment I have ever received. The staff is friendly and welcoming and will work with you to ensure that you get better. Overall the best experience I've had with physical therapists!

Bravo P. / Yelp

This office took care of me for almost 10 years, through 4 surgeries getting back to as close to normal as possible considering where I was when I came in. All I learned has helped me to maintain my health for many years, and counting!

Mary Jane W. / Facebook

Being an athlete it was reassuring to know that Mike and Curtis wanted to help me get back to the same level I was performing at in my sport and not just to minimize the pain. They gave me the confidence to return to my sport without fear of reinjury.

Orthopedic physical therapy is both a science and an art that focuses on improving the function of the human body. Therapeutic techniques can target muscles, bones, joints, tendons, and ligaments, depending on the patient’s unique challenges. It nearly always includes manual, hands-on therapy from a licensed physical or occupational therapist, but a comprehensive approach, like the one offered at MOPT, also includes patient education and individualized therapeutic exercise programs that can be practiced at home. Treatment can also include therapies such as aquatic therapy, acupuncture, and AlterG therapy. When searching for “manual physical therapy near you,” your search starts and ends with MOPT! Allow our licensed physical and occupational therapists to help you improve function, restore flexibility, and enhance your mobility in a friendly and professional patient-centered atmosphere.
