Patient Testimonials

Hand therapy can change lives, and who better to share the importance and impact of hand therapy than our patients?

Hand and Upper Extremity Therapy Awareness Videos

ASHT is proud to share three hand and upper extremity therapy awareness videos featuring compelling patient success stories. We encourage you to share these videos with your colleagues and social media followers to promote the specialty.

Meet 93-year-old Helen Hamilton, whose experience with hand therapy helped her return to everyday activities, including her new favorite hobby -- crocheting. Helen crochets animals and clothing to sell at local craft fairs to raise money for her retirement community.

Even with 50+ years of experience, piano concert technician Greg Sikora knows "doing a one-handed job would be impossible," so when he broke his finger last year, he took his recovery seriously. Learn how hand therapy got him "tuned up" and back to work.

Tennis elbow affects more than just tennis players! Learn how hand therapy helped HR manager Rosa Crespo, whose lateral epicondylitis ("tennis elbow") was causing a lot of pain with repetitive movements at her desk job.
