Southern Hand Centers (SHC) is celebrating 20 years of serving West Tennessee and Northwest Mississippi this year! We are so proud to have touched so many lives and look forward to many more. 


At SHC, our therapists specialize in the care and treatment of the upper extremity, from shoulder to fingertip. Each of our clinicians come with experience treating various diagnoses, including surgical cases and conservative cases.


Our clinics are independent entities owned by certified hand therapists. We offer care at each location under the direction of a certified hand therapist.


We also provide on-site hand therapy for physicians’ offices or employers, as well as industrial consulting.
