Certified Hand Therapy

Hand therapy is defined as the science and art of assessment and rehabilitation of the upper limbs.  

A hand, wrist, or shoulder injury can quickly compromise your quality of life whether it’s accident induced, a symptom of overuse, or has been brought on by a disease.  

TexPTS' Certified Hand Therapists (CHT) can get to the root of the problem, making adjustments to relieve pain that are well beyond what medicine could do alone.

Certified Hand Therapists have a minimum of five years of advanced clinical skills and therapy, including over 4,000 hours in hand therapy practice, and also have passed a comprehensive test in advanced clinical skills. The CHT credential offers assurance that our therapists have achieved the highest level of competency and maintain their CHT credential through extensive recertification.

Hand Therapy works to relieve pain in the hands, wrist, or shoulder due to:

  • Traumatic injuries
  • Fractures & dislocations
  • Sports injuries
  • Tennis elbow/lateral epicondylitis
  • RTC tendonitis
  • Arthritis
  • Carpal & cubital tunnel, thoracic outlet syndrome, & other nerve entrapment disorders
  • Amputations
  • Burns
  • Wounds
  • Tendon & nerve injuries
  • Dupuytren’s contracture
  • Complex regional pain syndrome/RSD
  • Shoulder, elbow, wrist & hand pain
  • Postoperative care of shoulder arthroscopy

Here’s what some of our patients had to say...

Even when there is not a pandemic, I think I would choose to do telehealth physical therapy because I’ve gotten great results in less time with a more flexible schedule. The ease of telehealth took away my excuses for not attending, which was half the battle.

Buck asks insightful questions and is a good listener.  I feel we have established a clear picture of the issues, and continue to update this as the treatment evolves.  Buck has assigned PT exercises which I see as insightful and get right to the core of the issues.

Courteous staff, excellent PTs, flexible scheduling. I highly recommend TexPTS. Excellent outcome with my shoulder therapy. Injuries happen; when anyone in my family needs a PT in the future, they’re headed to TexPTS!
