Nick Roselli, OTR/L, CHT - Queens, Bronx - Brooklyn - ManhassetLicensed Registered Occupational Therapist
Certified Hand Therapist
“I went into this field to help people overcome injury and dysfunction and get back to work and play without pain. I am fascinated by the intricacies of the complex human hand and upper extremity. I enjoy anatomy, splinting and instructing patients – from children to retirees – on how to help themselves get better.

“Most people think hand therapists only work with hands. In reality, we focus on the entire upper extremity from the shoulder down the arm to the fingertips. We increase patients’ ability to function independently while recovering from an injured upper extremity.

“I believe in the value of patient education and constant communication with patients and referring physicians. Being a good therapist means being able to think outside the box and be creative with treatments plans, splinting and bracing, ergonomic assessment and training. My main goal is to help each patient heal and return to their usual activities, including work, sports and hobbies.“The personal reward I get from helping so many people is far greater than I ever thought it would be.”

Eileen Meehan, OTR/L, CHT - Queens, Bronx - Brooklyn - ManhassetLicensed Registered Occupational Therapist
Certified Hand Therapist
“I have always enjoyed the sciences and I wanted to find a profession that combined my love of science and the ability to use that knowledge to help others. Occupational therapy has a strong focus on helping people become independent in their everyday lives. I found hand therapy especially interesting because it’s so complex and yet it provides for objective assessments in progress and function.
“I provide education to all of my patients, sharing with them in lay terms what I feel may be helpful for them. My ability to listen allows me to ascertain what is important to my patients and therefore create an optimal therapeutic environment.
