    About Us

     Come and meet our team at The Institute for Hand and Upper Extremities Rehabilitation As certified hand therapists, The Hand Institute specializes in the rehabilitation of injuries and related conditions that cause impairment of function in the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand. With skilled evaluation techniques, we address issues of motion, strength, pain, sensation, wound and scar conditions, swelling, and most importantly - function. What our patients need to do, and what their limitations are, is critical in developing and modifying a treatment plan. Patient input is absolutely necessary for achieving an excellent result, which is always the goal.

    We have a relationship with physicians and referral sources to aid with communication for optimal care. Linda has been an Occupational Therapist since 1984. She achieved her CHT status from the first Hand Therapy Certification exam in 1991.

    Linda treats a variety of conditions, orthopedic, as well as neurological.

    A Good Outcome

    Testimonial: 2018-07-23
    "Having been in therapy for 6 months, both before and after surgery I can say they tried very hard to make sure I had a good outcome......my recovery seems to take a long time, from my point of view, but Aileen was very patient and understanding when dealing with my impatience....she made the situation easier by her friendly and outgoing personality." -   Carol C.
