About Us

Active Wellness LLC specializes in hand and upper extremity rehabilitation. Active Wellness connects with other providers as part of your health-care team. Our hand therapist evaluates the hand, wrist, arm, and shoulder to develop a custom plan for your concerns and goals. Common referrals are for tendonitis or tendinopathy, arthritis, fractures, hand or arm numbness or tingling (carpal tunnel syndrome), swelling, and pain or weakness in the hand and arm. 

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 the swelling or pain resulting from sprains, strains, tendinopathy, or lymphedema.
