Do you need to undergo 5 years of training to get certified as Hand therapist? How does it work?

I recommend finding an OT that specializes in hand therapy and asking if you could observe them. I am currently observing an OT that specializes in hand therapy. She uses home made tools and tools that she orders (e.g., therapy putty,goniometers,pegboards,kinesiotape). She has been an OT for 32 years and owns her own rehab clinic. Some days are stressful, other days pass by quickly. Overall, it seems like something very good to specialize in. I think outpatient settings are ideal. I have seen more difficult patients in inpatient settings.
