The Importance of Therapy

Occupational Therapists look at not only the skills to perform Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), but also at the ability to bring them altogether, in order to be successful in doing those things that are meaningful to our lives. For some of us, this may be limited to taking care of ourselves, for others it may include taking care of someone else, running our home, shopping or engaging in our vocational or leisure activities.

If you are injured or undergo surgery, your physician may prescribe hand therapy to help you recover to your fullest ability. Therapy plays a very important part in your recuperation, and you want to be completely sure that your therapist is the best one for you. At Meridian Hand Therapy, we work one-on-one with patients to develop individual treatment plans to best address each patient's medical situation. Our primary goal is to work with our patients in evaluating their injury and to provide them with quality treatment and education to return them to maximal functioning and productive living as quickly as possible.

Protecting Your Joints With Arthritis

There are many things that can be done to preserve joint function, mobility and quality of life. Learning about the disease and treatment options, making time for physical activity and maintaining a healthy weight are essential.


Osteoarthritis (also known as degenerative joint disease, degenerative arthritis, or simply OA) afflicts nearly 30 million Americans. This condition can affect any joint in the body but most commonly causes problems in the hands, fingers, knees, hips, back, and neck. Though OA can occur at any age, it is most common in those over the age of 65.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is a form of joint damage caused by an autoimmune disorder. The smooth, cushioning fluids and tissues lining the joints are mistaken for a foreign invader, triggering the immune system to attack. As these soft tissues thicken in response to the attacks, the joints become stiff, swollen, painful, difficult to move, and eventually deformed.

Psoriatic Arthritis

The symptoms of psoriatic arthritis (also known as PsA) are caused by an autoimmune disease that attacks the cartilage between the bones. When this cushion is deteriorated, the bones begin to grind against one another or fall out of alignment. PsA can affect any joint in the body and may worsen or cause permanent damage if not treated early.
