Manual therapy for hands & upper extremities.
Our approach to occupational and hand therapy centers around hands-on manual therapy. While we employ other modalities such as thermal therapy, electrical stimulation, therapeutic ultrasound and therapeutic exercises, we know that direct, hands-on therapy is essential to creating an effective treatment program that achieves optimal results. Manual therapy is particularly helpful for acute irritation to joints, tendonitis and nerve-compression problems. Prior to manipulating joints, our therapists carefully assess each joint’s mobility. We then perform joint-specific mobilization.
Manual techniques to meet your needs.

Without proper, timely rehabilitation, an upper extremity injury can affect your life and your livelihood. Nick Roselli Occupational Therapy, with well-trained, experienced occupational and certified hand therapists on staff, has become a trusted resource for manual upper extremity rehabilitation. We can often correct difficulties more quickly, avoid potential problems and achieve optimal results by providing manual therapy as an adjunct to your treatment plan.
Rebuild your life with personalized care.
We begin your rehabilitative process by evaluating scar tissue, range of motion, strength, compensatory behaviors and pain response.
In many cases, we will create a custom splint to help stabilize the injury. After that, we design a program aimed at rebuilding strength and restoring flexibility, stability and normal function... all custom-suited to your specific needs.
In cases where surgery is not necessary, recovery protocols are designed by our occupational therapists in keeping with today’s most effective rehabilitation of upper extremity problems. We work closely with your physicians and surgeons. We follow their protocols and provide them with reports on your progress.
