Lyn Heathershaw

Occupational Therapist and Certified Hand Therapist

imgLyn Heathershaw


Lyn obtained her Master’s Degree In Occupational Therapy at Texas Women’s University. She has been a Certified Hand Therapist for over 20 years and a member of American Society of Hand Therapists. She began her career as a rehabilitation therapist at Craig hospital, with a special interest in their tendon transfer program to provide increased function in paralyzed hands, wrists and elbows. She pursued her love of working with hands by joining the University of Colorado as a hand therapist for Dr. Clinkscales, who was a professor in their orthopedic hand department. This led to joining a private practice with Hand Surgery Associates, 20 years ago, a job which she still enjoys to this day. She loves the challenge of hand therapy, splinting and most of all working closely with her patients to obtain their goals. In her free time, she loves the outdoors, traveling, riding her horse, and spending time with family and her many dogs.
