OSS has built a hand therapy department of specialists from the field of Occupational Therapy to help patients return to the things they love and their daily life activities with confidence. How OSS Therapy Services works?
We ALSO heal the hands of performing artists in Los Angeles!
Very recently, OSS and Hand Therapy Artistic Advantage of Burbank have merged. OSS is excited to now offer more specialized hand therapy for those patients in the performing arts. Our routine for this group includes “relative rest”, stretches, strengthening muscle imbalances and identifying solutions to regain your artistry.
Regardless of your profession too, we want to help all hands heal!
