This illustrated text and reference emphasizes the fundamentals of hand therapy — for both specialists and non-specialists who encounter clients with hand issues. It provides a consistent format with tips and guidelines for hand therapy treatment. Coverage includes hand anatomy, key terms and concepts, and the evaluation process. A focus on professional issues includes clients with functional somatic syndromes and challenging behavior, client-therapist rapport, and the roles of therapy assistants. Providing many case studies, this text helps therapists think critically about clients' individual needs.
    • Emphasizes the development of clinical reasoning skills, describing the components of the evaluation process and addressing how to decide what to evaluate.
    • Covers a broad array of common diagnoses seen in hand therapy, including shoulder and elbow disorders, peripheral nerve problems, wrist and hand fractures, tendonitis and tendonosis, finger sprains and deformities, tendon injuries, arthritis, burns, infections, ganglion cysts, stiffness, Dupuytrens, and pediatric and geriatric hand problems.
    • Diagnostic-specific information and treatment guidelines follow a consistent format:
      • Overview
