Hand therapy falls into this category. Our team at Continuum Wellness provides hand therapy as a part of our physical therapy practice. We will always begin by performing an initial assessment of your injury. This way we can establish what issues you’re having.

Once we have this information, we can create a personalized treatment plan for you. We will focus your hand therapy on restoring movement and strength for your daily activities.
