Cheryl Deel, O.T., CHT

Cheryl graduated from Ohio State University in 1981 with a bachelor's degree in occupational therapy. She earned certification as a hand therapist in 1991. Cheryl has seen many advances in hand surgery and therapy during her career that have improved the outcomes of therapy for her patients. The hand is a complex human tool and when it is affected by disease or injury it can have a significant impact on a person's ability to perform even the simplest of tasks. Cheryl's goals are to increase a patient's understanding of their disease or injury and to establish an individualized therapy program to maximize the functional use of their hand.
