Occupational Therapy

Receive the Supportive Treatment You Need

A hand or wrist injury can hinder many of your everyday activities, such as getting dressed, driving, or working. To help you return to those day-to-day tasks, it’s important to treat your underlying condition and to improve your hand's overall function. Occupational therapy is often an important element in achieving that outcome.

Occupational Therapy Helps Improve Your Everyday Life

Occupational therapists help improve your hand and wrist function, so that you can resume the activities that are important to you. MHS OTs have decades of specialized experience in hand and wrist therapy. They will carefully assess both your injury and your goals before tailoring the best therapy plan for your needs. Your therapy plan may include exercises to strengthen your hand and increase its mobility, as well as adaptive equipment to make activities easier. Your MHS therapist may also review your home and workplace and recommend lifestyle changes to reduce the likelihood that your injury reoccurs.
