ABOUT ABLE HANDS REHABILITATION

We are highly specialized in taking care of all hand injuries and impairments.  We evaluate hand injury/surgery patients together after video-conferencing and come up with a treatment plan including use of all modalities such as paraffin wax, hot-cold packs, ultrasound, NMES (electrical stimulation).  The plan also consists of manual therapy techniques, edema control techniques, scar management techniques and regaining range of motion with exercises and static or dynamic custom splinting programs.  Hand therapy interventions as above are constantly changing as per your progress and the timing of these changes is critical in regaining full hand functions.  Keeping pleasant and friendly surroundings in our offices is a magic that we have in our practices!

Certified Hand Therapists are friendly and make personal bonds with hand trauma patients. This bond of trust helps us and the patient to go through all the hardship that comes after injuring your hands.

In essence, the ‘Certified Hand Therapist’, or ‘CHT’ can be an Occupational Therapist or a Physical Therapist, who is licensed and a practicing therapist in the United States for more than five years with extensive hands-on experience of at least 4000 hours, in treating hand injuries and impairments.

Hand Therapist

When all the strict pre-conditions are met, the therapist then takes a difficult board examination conducted by Hand Therapy Certification Commission. Upon passing the test, the community has a new Certified Hand Therapist. He or she can then provide specialized Hand Therapy services to all patients with hand trauma or surgery and call themselves CHT’s.

CHT’s are always trusted and preferred by all Specialist Hand Surgeons (Plastic or Orthopedic), to take care of their post-surgical and post trauma hand patients. This trust develops due to our ability to give them excellent results and making their patients happy for regaining as much hand functions as possible.

We as human beings, interact with our environment through our hands and make things happen in our professional and personal life. Hands perform millions of functions for us every day without us even thinking about it!

It is exactly the reason why hands are so intricate and complicated.

Compromising the hand functions, due to injury or impairment, can reduce our interaction with the world significantly, affecting our psycho-social life. Loss of hand functions is a devastating blow to any human being and need to be taken seriously.

Certified Hand Therapist’s know how to take care of wounded and disabled hands in a very specialized and methodical way. The goal is to make hands better in function as well as in appearance.

CHT’s are always trusted and preferred by all Specialist Hand Surgeons (Plastic or Orthopedic), to take care of their post-surgical and post trauma hand patients.

TESTIMONIALS

What They are Saying

I have been a patient of Minette Godbole and staff for nearly 6 months for therapy on my left hand following surgery. The compassion and talent of both Minette and Gabby B. are outstanding. From the start, Minette and Gabby created various splints to adjust to my needs at every moment of my therapy. Splints for daily and night time use not only physically gave me the support to reach my goal of 100% recovery, but they also gave me emotional support to know that my hand was protected as I progressed. The atmosphere that has been created at Able Hands is warm and welcoming, and, as a result, patients feel more like family with both the staff and each other. Overall, my experience at Able Hands Rehab has been both positive and memorable, and I would highly recommend them for your hand therapy needs.

Dear Minette and Gabby,

Thank you for your excellent treatments towards decreasing my RA symptom. Your knowledge, skills and professionalism have decreased my pain and increased the function of my hands & wrists.

Wishing you continued success.

I highly recommend Mahalia Ong and Able Hands in the Edison/ Old bridge location. She is a certified hand therapist. From the day I walked in, I received the best treatment and the highest level of individual attention. Mahalia reviews my progress regularly and makes recommendation for further improvements. She is very thorough and answers all the questions in details, making sure I understand everything. I also met Minette C. Godbole who was a pleasure to work with. She and Alyssa created two devices to helped me with my post recovery after surgery. They also recommend stretches and exercises to do at home, to expedite the recovery. Everyone is friendly and attentive. They treat you, like they would treat themselves.

Their office spares no expense in getting the best and the latest treatment. I am so thankful for Mahalia and her customized, professional care.

This PT office and its team main goal is to provide the best care and best results! The facility clean and very well maintained. I look forward to each visit. The only regret I have is I did not switch therapist sooner. Love love folks!
