If you were prescribed to see an occupational therapist for hand therapy or if you have any hand or wrist pain that has been untreated for too long, don’t delay getting started! Our CHT team will get you back to full function as safely and quickly as possible.
No prescription? No problem.
You can start physical therapy without a prescription or referral from a doctor, through a program called "Direct Access." Even better, it's usually covered by insurance. Give us a call, we're happy to check your coverage for you.
