“Hand therapy is the ‘art and science of rehabilitation’ of the arm, which includes the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder. Through hand therapy, we can help you regain functional use and/or reverse disease progression so you can enjoy life’s activities. You just don’t have to ‘live with it’. We work with all types of injuries, aches and pains including arthritis, repetitive use, fractures, stroke and post-surgery.

 In my free time, I’m an avid Cyclone fan, ride the local bike trails and enjoy traveling in the United States and internationally.”
