The CHT Credential


Recognized by many health care professions as a benchmark for excellence in the advanced practice of upper extremity rehabilitation. The credential is awarded to an Occupational Therapist or Physical Therapist who has a minimum of five years clinical experience, including 4,000 hours of direct hand therapy. In addition, the CHT has successfully passed a comprehensive test of advanced clinical skills and theory in upper extremity treatment. Due to advancements in the profession, every CHT is required to demonstrate continued professional development by recertifying every five years.

  • Modalities are used to encourage and speed the healing process.

Newport Hand Center

We provide specialized care to those with upper extremity injuries.

Our goal is to enable patients to regain lost function and mobility in a supportive environment.

After a detailed evaluation, an individualized treatment program is designed to meet the therapy goals. Treatment includes on to one care, along with training and appropriate modality applications. We offer comprehensive therapy promoting maximum return to your daily activities of life, work and sports.

Conditions we treat often include traumatic injuries involving bone, nerve, tendon or ligament reconstruction, along with amputations, arthritis, pain syndromes, contractures, Dupuytren’s, joint replacements/fusions, sprains, overuse injuries, neuropathies, shoulder conditions and coordination problems.

Splints/Orthotics are an integral part of care. We provide custom fabrication to position and protect areas that are healing from fractures. Our custom orthotics also promote function as well as protection during work/sports.

We are in-network providers with most insurance companies.
