Mary Reilly stated, “man, through the use of his hands, as they are energized by mind and will, can influence the state of his own health.” A pioneer in the field of occupational therapy, Reilly captured the complexity of upper extremity dysfunction in her powerful 1961 Eleanor Clarke Slagle lecture.

At Commonwealth Hand Therapy, we understand the message that Mary Reilly passionately conveyed. Staffed with a team of highly skilled individuals, Commonwealth Hand Therapy treats a wide variety of diagnoses. As a teaching facility, we strive to provide gold standard quality of care by constantly evolving with the addition of cutting edge technology and research.
