Nicole Yates, OTR/L, CHT

Occupational Therapist


Nicole began her career in 1999 after graduating from the University of Missouri with clinical rotations focusing in outpatient rehabilitation with an emphasis on upper extremity treatments. She spent the first 4 years of her career primarily treating upper extremity injuries in both acute care and outpatient settings. After moving to Huntsville, she joined the TOC team and has been completely focused on treating upper extremity orthopedic and traumatic injuries. She is part of a strong team of Certified Hand Therapists who treat quite specialized upper extremity injuries that require skills in orthotics fabrication and manual techniques including the FRAMS method of tool assisted soft tissue mobilization along with various other manual therapy techniques to maximize our patient’s recovery outcomes. Nicole’s interests in her field include hand trauma including tendon and nerve injuries, management of the arthritic hand patient both pre and post-operative, treatment of overuse syndromes of the upper extremity and treatment of the athlete. Additional skill of serial casting applied to patients with neurological conditions who have developed spasticity and received Botox injections.
