Hand therapy is the art and science of evaluating and treating conditions of the upper extremity including the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder using a variety of therapeutic interventions to treat and rehabilitate a patient. The team of Certified Hand Therapists (CHTs) at Northern Virginia Hand Therapy offer treatments and consultations for conditions such as:
Our team of CHTs are board-certified and licensed, and design each treatment plan based on your physician's diagnosis and your specific needs. We work closely with your physician to provide a continuum of care, which oYen starts within days of the injury or surgery right through to your return to a productive lifestyle. Restoring function, improving range of motion and increasing sensitivity are critical to hand therapy.
Thank you for helping me. I wasn’t getting better until you told me what to do and helped me know how to approach my health care.
I love the pleasant atmosphere here. Your made to feel at home and that each patient matters. Each case is handled in a delicate way.
My son came to Nova Hand Therapy with one of the most severe tendon injuries you can have to a finger. We saw Dana two days after surgery and she clearly explained to him what he could expect in treatment and what he had to do daily at home & school. Dana was wonderful at explaining why he had to do each exercise and how it would benefit him and improve his mobility and strength. Twelve weeks later, with a lot of encouragement from Dana, my son has recovered full range of motion. I would recommend Dana to anyone I knew who needed hand therapy.
“I can’t thank you enough for working with me, encouraging me and being patient with me. I never thought I would be able to use my hand again and I am doing things I wouldn’t have dreamed I would be able to do!”
"I want to thank you for the excellent therapy we received from your practice. I couldn’t have done it without you and I cannot thank you enough. I will refer you to anyone that is in need of hand therapy.”
