Occupational/Hand Therapy

Patients with limitations or dysfunction of the hands, wrists, elbows and shoulders experience the best possible outcomes from the hand therapy.

Hand therapy merges the philosophies and practice of  occupational and physical therapies and involves the assessment, planning, and rehabilitation treatment. It promotes prevention, reverse progression or disease or injury, and restore function, all to enhance a patient’s ability to perform everyday tasks and fully enjoy life.

UOA also offers Nerve Conduction Study, which identifies the presence of peripheral nerve damage by assessing how well and how quickly nerves can transmit electrical signals to other parts of the body. Patients suffering from nerve and muscle disorders of the hand, such as carpal tunnel syndrome and cubital tunnel syndrome, can benefit from having a nerve conduction study (NCS).

With extensive experience and comprehensive knowledge of the upper-limb structure, our hand therapy specialist works closely with our orthopaedic specialists to return you to your pre-injury level of activity.
