Certified Hand Therapy

Hand therapy is defined as the science and art of assessment and rehabilitation of the upper limbs.  

A hand, wrist, or shoulder injury can quickly compromise your quality of life whether it's accident induced, a symptom of overuse, or has been brought on by a disease.  

BRPT's Certified Hand Therapists (CHT) can get to the root of the problem, making adjustments to relieve pain that are well beyond what medicine could do alone.

Certified Hand Therapists have a minimum of five years of advanced clinical skills and therapy, including over 4,000 hours in hand therapy practice, and also have passed a comprehensive test in advanced clinical skills. The CHT credential offers assurance that our therapists have achieved the highest level of competency and maintain their CHT credential through extensive recertification.

Hand Therapy works to relieve pain in the hands, wrist,
or shoulder due to:

  • Traumatic injuries
  • Fractures & dislocations
  • Sports injuries
  • Tennis elbow/lateral epicondylitis
  • RTC tendonitis
  • Arthritis
  • Carpal & cubital tunnel, thoracic outlet syndrome, & other nerve entrapment disorders
  • Amputations
  • Burns
  • Wounds
  • Tendon & nerve injuries
  • Dupuytren's contracture
  • Complex regional pain syndrome/RSD
  • Shoulder, elbow, wrist & hand pain

Here's what some of our patients had to say

My pain was so bad it was impacting my running and making my training very difficult and painful. With their help I was able to achieve my goal of qualifying for the Boston Marathon! I am so thankful to all the staff for all they did for me and making me feel like I was…

This place is amazing. The people are outstanding. I love the way they explain what to do and why and will remind you when you forget. They are kind and realize you may be hurting. They are always timely and friendly. I thank all of you.

five stars Patti B. BPRT Lake Patient

I came to BRPT Lake at the Lee Drive location after ACL reconstruction and meniscus surgery. Jamie, Donna and YuYi have all been just wonderful! I’ll be glad when therapy is over, but I will miss all these ladies.

five stars Theresa A. BPRT Lake Patient

Best place ever. I had at least 4 separate injuries/surgeries where I needed therapy for my knee and back. Each time Tyler, Seth and crew got me back on track. You can’t beat their personal attention to your specific needs.
