Occupational Therapy

TOC employs eight occupational therapists, including five certified hand therapists (CHT) in the Huntsville/Madison, Athens/Limestone, Scottsboro and Guntersville areas. Our hand therapists are specialized in treatment of the hand and upper extremity.

Their services include:

  • custom splinting
  • range of motion/strengthening
  • dexterity training
  • sensory retraining
  • wound care

Most patients may have been affected by some sort of trauma to the hand or upper extremity; however, some of them come from chronic conditions such as:

A treatment plan tailored to you

Similarly to physical therapists, our occupational therapists perform a detailed evaluation and set up a treatment plan that may consist of:

  • modalities (ultrasound, fluidotherapy, iontophoresis, electrical stimulation, etc.)
  • manual therapy
  • massage
  • education
  • therapeutic exercise

Our occupational therapists work very closely with our surgeons to make sure that patients’ needs are being met with the appropriate treatments. The treatment plan of each patient is tailored specifically to return them to a productive lifestyle.

We want our patients to know that you can feel safe when visiting a TOC clinic

Please read below so that you can be confident in our clinic procedure and additional safety measures.

In compliance with recent policy changes in counties that we serve, and to provide the safest possible environment for our patients, effective immediately, all patients and any guests who enter any TOC facilities will be required to wear a mask or face covering. In the event a patient does not have a mask, TOC will provide one. We appreciate your compliance with our mask policy. As always, TOC will continue to provide exceptional orthopaedic care to our current and future patients in the safest environment possible.

We look forward to taking care of you!
