Hand Therapy Canada was formed in 2004 for the purpose of creating a National Hand Therapy meeting for our Country. Thank you to all of those therapists who attended our 5 Annual Canadian Hand Therapy Conferences. Hand Therapy Canada is proud to have initiated a National Hand Therapy Meeting for Canada. In our wake, the Canadian Society has successfully initiated an Annual Hand Therapy Meeting. Now that one of our primary missions has been completed, we are focussing on developing hand therapy services across Southwestern Ontario, Ottawa, and eventually thoughout Canada.
All of our therapists have been trained under the "hand therapy model". This model trains therapists to provide effective treatment for the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder. We currently have 8 Occupational and Physical Therapsits providing assessments and treatment for upper extremity problems across Ontario.
New clients are usually seen within one week of referral. We accept referrals from Orthopaedic and Plastic Surgeons, Family Physicians, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Other Health Care Professionals, and Self Referrals.
