Highline Hand Therapy opened its doors in October of 1988. The Highline medical community was growing and several referring physicians asked the owner of Southwest Hand Therapy to offer hand and upper extremity therapy in the Burien area. Highline Hand Therapy was formed as an independent, therapist-owned practice. The practice grew and, after several location changes, Highline Hand Therapy settled into the present suite in the Southwest Seattle Ambulatory Surgery Center building.  In 2019, we joined with Washington Hand Therapy and RET Physical Therapy.  This new relationship provides a comprehensive business framework to better support our staff.  We are confident that tis will allow us t continue to provide quality care to our community.
