Hand Physical Therapy Louisville, Evansville & Southern Indiana

Hand therapy is defined as the science and art of assessment and rehabilitation of the upper limbs.  

A hand, wrist, or shoulder injury can quickly compromise your quality of life whether it’s accident induced, a symptom of overuse, or has been brought on by a disease.  

ProRehab's Certified Hand Therapists (CHT) can get to the root of the problem, making adjustments to relieve pain that are well beyond what medicine could do alone.

Certified Hand Therapists have a minimum of five years of advanced clinical skills and therapy, including over 4,000 hours in hand therapy practice, and also have passed a comprehensive test in advanced clinical skills. The CHT credential offers assurance that our therapists have achieved the highest level of competency and maintain their CHT credential through extensive recertification.

Hand therapy is available at our Bowling Green, Evansville – East, Evansville – West, Haubstadt, IN, Louisville, KY - Highlands, and Vincennes, IN locations

Here’s what some of our patients had to say

Thank you so much! I love you guys and the care I received!

five stars Zoe ProRehab PT Patient

After just 4 visits…I feel like a brand new person. Before, I could barely walk for 15 minutes without my back screaming in pain. Now I’m zooming through therapy and going on walks at home.

five stars Christy F. ProRehab PT Patient

Wonderful staff, very helpful, competent and professional. They listen to what I say and are working with me to meet my goal.

five stars Barbara E. ProRehab PT Patient

Amazing service. They have gone out of their way to call and follow up with me while doing my at-home exercises. Highly recommend.

five stars Josh F. ProRehab PT Patient

I couldn’t have wished for a better place to go for my knee replacement therapy! They know what they are doing to get you back in the swing of things so you can go on with your life!
