bethBeth Nicholson is an occupational therapist and also a certified hand specialist who treats patients in the clinic. “Each patient is viewed holistically with appreciation for nutritional, environmental, and lifestyle factors that contribute to etiology and healing.

My experience includes in-depth evaluation and treatment of all forms of upper extremity dysfunction including tendon and nerve repairs, fractures, joint injuries, soft tissue and crush injuries, cumulative trauma such as carpal tunnel and other nerve compressions, tendonitis, strains and sprains, and arthritis. I offer custom splint fabrication and fitting of prefabricated orthotics, depending on the needs of each patient. In surgical cases, I am accustomed to pre-operative visits for patient education regarding post-operative care, and immediate or early intervention post-operatively for wound care, to protect repaired tissues and to gently maintain health and mobility of non-involved structures. I also have extensive background in all aspects of work related injuries including communication with insurance carriers, employers, and case managers, prevention practices, return to work assessment, and impairment ratings.“
