Certified Hand Therapists
Certified Hand Therapists (CHTs) are the hand and upper extremity specialty certification that requires many years of training, experience, and board certification. As Certified Hand Therapists and Hand Therapists, we specialize in the rehabilitation of the upper limb, including the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder. As CHTs we understand the structure and functionality of this specific portion of the body and how it relates to activities and injuries.
The Hand Therapists at Hand + Physical Therapy NYC utilize specialized skills to assess, plan, and treat each patient. We provide therapeutic intervention to prevent disease, restore functionality, and inhibit or stop the progression of deterioration. Our goal is your goal, to live life hands-on!
Splinting | Custom Orthotics
We custom fabricate all splints as recommended by your doctor or therapist. Splints can help decrease pain, enhance muscle performance, stabilize or immobilize joints, and assist in the recovery of injured muscles, tendons, or nerves. We custom fabricate static and dynamic splints for both patients of all ages.
Serial casting can help stretch tight joints and muscles caused by injury. We have custom serial casting programs for both pediatric and adult patients. Speak to a therapist today to learn more about serial casting.
ASTYM treatment is the regenerative medicine of therapy and is designed to restore soft tissues at a cellular level. It regenerates healthy soft tissues (muscles, tendons, etc.) and removes unwanted scar tissue that may be causing pain or movement restrictions. ASTYM therapy has helped countless people by restoring their movement, getting rid of their pain, and giving them back their lives.
ASTYM therapy is so effective because it was scientifically developed to target the actual cause of the pain rather than just the symptoms. Years of scientific and clinical research conducted at leading universities and hospital systems resulted in ASTYM treatment, which now routinely resolves injuries that were previously thought to be permanent. ASTYM treatment is unmatched in its ability to resolve tendinopathies, scar tissue problems, and other soft tissue dysfunctions.

Business Training Sessions
Keeping your employees healthy and injury-free is simply — good business. H+PTNYC offers worksite consultations designed to address potential ergonomic risk factors, prevent workplace injuries, and mitigate worker’s compensation claims, ultimately protecting the company’s bottom line. Our training programs are customized for each individual business style and situation. We provide business training services to small groups of employees as well as large groups in a conference room setting.
Our team of Occupational Therapists can conduct individual and/or group workplace ergonomic assessments (both in-person and via telehealth) to evaluate specific job tasks. This is especially important as it relates to a worker’s current physical status in the presence (or absence) of an injury, as well as positional status. The goal of the evaluation is to educate the client and worker on the essentials of proper ergonomic setup and proper body mechanics. Your Hand + Physical Therapy evaluator will provide immediate feedback and corrections during the assessment, and if necessary, a list of items to purchase to prevent (or recover) from injury or pain from overuse. Additionally, H+PTNYC can provide a written recommendation of any necessities to the employer on behalf of the patient.
