Providing Advanced Orthopedic Upper Extremity Care.

  • 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:

    • Management of open or sutured wounds (prevention of infection and assistance in healing)
    • Control of hypertrophic (raised and/or swollen) or hypersensitive scars
    • Reduction of swelling
    • Management of acute or chronic pain
    • Desensitization following nerve injury or trauma
    • Sensory re-education after nerve injury
    • Design and implementation of exercise programs to increase motion, dexterity and/or strength
    • Splint fabrication for prevention or corrections of injury
    • Training in the performance of daily life skills through adapted methods and equipment
    • Conditioning prior to returning to work

The Northern Virginia Hand Therapy difference.

  • 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.

What our patients say

  • 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.

    Jennifer G

  • 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.

    Brett S

  • 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 and 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 cannot 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!”

    Julia B.

  • "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.”
