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.
"This book would be beneficial to both clinicians and students. I find the addition of clinical tips, or ‘pearls’, particularly useful as a quick reference guide. As an academic who teaches functional anatomy to occupational therapists, I find the scenarios particularly useful for helping students see the whole picture rather than just individual muscle actions."
