Hand Therapy

Sheltering Arms Institute offers the most advanced technologies to help patients who have difficulty using their arms, hands and fingers. A team of clinicians will evaluate and determine a treatment plan for any problem related to the hand.

A hand or upper-extremity injury or surgery can be distressing. Our goal is to minimize the time away from the things you love and help you to return to your highest level of function. Together, we’ll take an approach to therapy that is evidence based and is unique, not only to your injury, but to your goals and the lifestyle you want to return to.

The skilled treatment team at Sheltering Arms Institute can effectively treat and rehabilitate each patient through post-operative rehabilitation, industry consultation or preventative, non-operative or conservative treatments. Rehabilitation often starts within days of the injury or surgery right through the patient’s return to work and/or a productive lifestyle.

We treat conditions such as:

  • Fractures of the hand or arm
  • Crush injuries
  • Ligament injuries and sprains
  • Cumulative trauma disorders or repetitive-use injuries
  • Arthritis and joint reconstruction
  • Lacerations and amputations
  • Burns
  • Surgical repairs
  • Tendons and nerve disorders

The expert clinical team at Sheltering Arms Institute utilizes a wide array of groundbreaking technologies to support patients on their road to recovery including exoskeletons to stimulate and support movement, electrical stimulation and virtual reality.
