Occupational Therapists are an essential part of the healthcare team, as their education emphasizes the upper extremity. Occupational Therapy is a unique component of rehabilitation. The hand is a complex and delicate part of the human anatomy and for optimal function the integrity of the hands is essential. The human hand consists of 27 bones, 27 joints, 34 muscles, over 100 ligaments and tendons, 3 main nerves, and an elaborate system of blood vessels. This is why a therapist with specific education and experience with the hand is important for maximum recovery from elbow and hand injuries or surgeries.

Occupational therapy and upper extremity rehabilitation is a specialized niche that requires highly trained and skilled therapists.
