Occupational (Hand) Therapy - Omni Orthopaedics

Hand Therapy

Specially trained hand therapy specialists are onsite at OMNI to offer you a helping hand.

A hand therapy specialist is an occupational therapist (OT) or physical therapist (PT) who, through advanced continuing education such as the  AAOS, clinical experience and integration of knowledge in anatomy, physiology and kinesiology, has become proficient in the treatment of pathological upper extremity conditions resulting from trauma, disease, congenital or acquired deformity. 

At OMNI we understand  the importance of maintaining complete functionality of your most used extremity. That’s why our hand therapy specialists take the extra time to understand the entirety of your personal situation to properly set a course for a complete recovery. Omni hand doctors have vast experience in a multitude of specialties from tendon and nerve procedures to complex hand and wrist reconstruction. The ultimate goal of hand therapy is to promote recovery and allow the patient to return to their full ability to engage with work, hobbies, and everyday life. 

More specifically hand therapy can influence the following areas:

  1. Improve motion, strength,  or coordination  after injury or surgery on the wrist or hand.
  2. Increase independence in self-care and ability to complete everyday responsibilities after a major injury or facing a degenerative condition.

Writer’s Cramp


“I just want to share my amazing experience that I encountered at the Dover Office. The staff there is simply amazing. I felt welcome the entire time I was there. The nursing staff along with the office staff conversed with me as if I had been their friend for some time. Dr. Richterman was amazing. I had a great conversation with him; he taught me things about the arm that I had no clue about.

He was genuine in asking about my life and discussing my career along with my hand/arm questions. I was simply blown away by my experience at the office. I was even somewhat sad that I don’t have to return. Thank you Dover office, I really appreciate your kindness and how you make your patients feel welcome!”


Trigger Finger


“Three surgeries for trigger fingers by Dr. Richterman. He does a great job from start to finish. I have been a patient at OMNI Orthopaedics for years. From back pain to a broken ankle. Every one there is wonderful. I would never go anywhere else.”


Broken Wrist


“OMNI has helped me through a variety of issues over the years, most recently I had a large Ganglion Cyst removed that showed up after my broken wrist healed. Originally I never thought I would be able to do some of the activities that I could before such as push ups which had become rather painful. After a few weeks of therapy I have no issues whatsoever and I’m so grateful. Dr. Richterman and the team at OMNI have always got me back to 100%. Wouldn’t go anywhere else.”
