The Rehabilitation Services Department at CHOC Children’s provides hand therapy for children and young adults. All of our therapies are designed to meet each patient’s specific needs. Physical therapists use a number of different therapies to improve grip, strength and range of motion using a variety of specialized treatments. Constraint-induced therapy is one way that therapists help patients in hand therapy. In this type of therapy, a patient’s better-functioning hand is restrained so that the affected hand must be used more often. Other types of therapy include stretching and increasing range of motion of the hand and fingers to improve fine motor function and the use of splints to improve the flexibility of the hand with a prolonged and constant stretch.
