Kathy Nielsen, OTR/L, CHT

Kathy Nielsen received her Bachelor of Science in Occupational Therapy from the University of Alabama in 1994 and her hand certification in 2011. She can develop individualized evaluations, hand splits (orthosis) and treatment programs for a wide range of acute, post-surgical and chronic conditions involving hand, wrist and elbow. Diagnoses include fractures of the elbows, wrists, hands, flexor and extensor tendon injuries, peripheral nerve injuries, arthritis, soft tissue injuries, ergonomic issues, inflammatory disorders, traumatic hand injuries and amputations. 

Kathy believes education is a key role in the recovery process. Through education, the patient has better understanding of their injury, the rehabilitation process, and the steps that are needed to achive the best possible outcome.
