Tricia Kloeckl, OTR/L, CHT

Hand Therapist

Bloomington

As a hand therapist, I specialize in upper extremity rehabilitation, providing treatment from shoulder to fingertips. I enjoy working with orthopaedic injuries, pre and post-surgical as well as cumulative trauma. I provide rehabilitation as well as custom splinting for injured workers, artists, musicians and athletes with a focus on optimizing their performance after injury. I believe in a holistic and collaborative approach, utilizing brain and body neuroscience education, graded motor imagery, manual techniques, therapeutic exercise, neuromuscular rehabilitation, and ADL training/modification in my practice. Healing is a team effort and I encourage my patients to be proactive in the process.
