We are going to think BIG for you.

We are going to be sharing some big things through Hand Therapy Academy, and this will be your hub for those resources. We will be including a full master course on splinting training that brings together all of our years of training on how to fabricate fast and efficient splints. We will also be sharing descriptions of all of our protocols for treatment for everything from tendon injuries to arthritis care. Lastly, you will find lots of patient handouts for home programs and PDFs you can use in your practice.
