After graduating from the University of Utah Physical Therapy Program in 1977, Margo Jones Brady worked in an extended care facility for a short time before purchasing a small private practice in Murray. Concurrently, Margo had become acquainted with a hand surgeon, Dr. John Ream, who wanted to work with a therapist that was willing to learn about hand rehabilitation. Hand & Upper Extremity Rehab Specialists opened its doors in July 1979. The business grew as the specialty of hand therapy became recognized. In 1991, Margo was among the first therapists in the state to pass a national exam to become a Certified Hand Therapist.
As the demand for hand therapy grew, so did the business with additional clinics opening in Park City, downtown Salt Lake City, and Bountiful. Therapists with Orthopedic and Women’s Health experience and specialization soon joined the practice. In 2001, Steve Crandall joined Margo as a partner in the business. The business name again evolved to Hand & Orthopedic Rehabilitation Specialists to better represent the strengths of the practice. Steve’s leadership and emphasis in orthopedics, particularly back injuries and industrial medicine, have added another dimension of specialization to the practice. The business has grown to include balance and geriatric therapists joining the practice.
2011 was another landmark year with the opening of a new Draper clinic bringing the total to five Hand & Orthopedic Rehab clinics serving the greater SL Valley and Wasatch Front. The emphasis in the business name is on “Rehabilitation Specialists” in that we are a group of therapists that are certified specialists and experts in treating many different conditions and injuries including headaches, sports injuries, total joint rehab, and more.
