About Us

What do you do when you’ve hurt your most valuable tools… Your arms?

When pain affects your arms, it prevents you from doing even the simplest everyday tasks: such as getting dressed, preparing a meal, or even getting through a workday. This pain may even interfere with your ability to do the things you enjoy most: like playing golf, spending time with your family, or getting a good nights sleep.

At Hand 2 Hand Therapy, we understand how much pain in the elbow, wrist and hands can interfere with your life. It is our job to provide you with the highest quality of service and expertise to help you get beyond the pain and return you to doing what matters most in your life.

Whether you suffer from joint pain, muscle aches, or tingling along the arm or hand, we at Hand 2 Hand Therapy are committed to providing you with what you need to fix your most valuable tools.
