Peggy Stein OTD OTR/L CHT
Dr. Peggy Stein has over 25 years of experience with hand and upper-extremity rehabilitation. After working several years in injured-worker programs and hospital settings, she began to specialize in hand therapy. Independent study, training with mentors, and continued education coursework deepened her skill and expertise as a certified hand therapist (CHT).
Dr. Stein is pleased to offer Fascial Counterstrain as a treatment option. Fascial Counterstrain is a gentle manual technique used to identify and treat the primary source of the condition or injury. This treatment provides relief from edema and pain resulting from sprains, strains, tendinopathy, or lymphedema.
