Meet the Armworks Team

Treatment Philosophy

Our philosophy in treatment is to partner with our patients to help them thrive: giving them the tools they need to heal and return to functional activity at work and home. We offer a comprehensive program to address elbow, wrist and hand diagnoses by blending manual therapy, modalities and splinting to achieve excellent outcomes.

What is Certified Hand Therapy?

The Certified Hand Therapy credentialing demonstrates clinical excellence by requiring an occupational or physical therapist to have 5 years of clinical experience, over 4000 hours of experience in providing hand therapy and pass a rigorous examination. This blend of knowledge and clinical skill with elbow, wrist and hand injuries sets us apart from other area providers.
