Hand Therapy

Gunnison Valley Health’s Rehab & Athletic Medicine team is fortunate to have both occupational and physical therapists who are experts in hand therapy. If you require hand therapy, we can assist you in Gunnison or Crested Butte – whichever location is best for you.

What is hand therapy?

Hand therapy is used to evaluate and treat injuries or conditions in any area of the upper extremity – shoulder, arm, elbow, forearm, wrist and hand. Hand therapy can be used as preventative care, post-surgical rehabilitation or existing injury treatment.

People suffering from arthritis or other chronic and/or neurological conditions can benefit from hand therapy by learning how to protect joints, use adaptive equipment or other methods to improve function in the upper extremity. Hand therapy involves a variety of approaches to treat the variety of problems patients may face. Using tools such as exercise programs to pain management, our hand therapists will find a solution to improve function, minimize pain and allow you to continue living life as normal.
