Hand Therapy Overview

Hand therapy blends art with science when treating patients with a variety of conditions involving the shoulder, elbow, forearm, wrist and hand. Hattiesburg Clinic treats patients experiencing pain, dysfunction and mobility issues in the hand, wrist and arm.

When an injury, condition or surgery prevents you from performing the tasks you value the most, it can be frustrating. Our licensed and Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) at Hattiesburg Clinic focuses on rebuilding strength, dexterity and function in the hands and upper extremities.
