Desert Hand Therapy was formed and created in July 1997. Chris Reynolds, PT, MHS, CHT, started his practice following a career in hand therapy spanning 17 years in the Phoenix area. In 2012, Desert Hand expanded and added a full body division, DHT Physical Therapy. Desert Hand now hasĀ 10 locations, with several clinics offering full body services, to serve the Metro Phoenix area. Therapists at Desert Hand Therapy have the highest training in hand therapy, with ongoing knowledge of changes in upper extremity care. Therapists in our full body clinics, DHT, also have extensive training and knowledge to treat a wide range of orthopedic conditions. All of our therapists treat patients and their families with dignity and respect.


Desert Hand Therapy/DHT is dedicated to creating an atmosphere of wellness and professional hospitality. We only employ highly qualified therapists. Our professional staff is there to assist in optimal patient recovery.


That every injured patient returns to normal function as quickly as possible.
