All our occupational therapists are certified hand therapists (CHTs), meaning they have completed additional training in the field of hand therapy and passed an advanced, comprehensive test in upper extremity rehabilitation.
Additionally, many of our physical therapists and occupational therapists have advanced training and certifications in these related areas:

- Hand and wrist injuries, including fractures and sprains
- Knee problems, including fractures, sprains and ligament problems

Depending on the extent of your knee pain, your physician may suggest nonsurgical treatments – such as medication, injections, braces, and physical therapy – before recommending surgery. If nonsurgical methods don’t help you recover some knee function, your physician will determine if a knee replacement is right for you.
