Kristine L. Kearns, MOT, CHT
Certified Hand Therapist
Kristine L. Kearns, MOT is a registered Occupational Therapist (OT) and Certified Hand Therapist (CHT), licensed in NH and MA. She graduated from Quinnipiac University with a Bachelors in Science and Health Science, a Minor in Psychology and a Masters of Occupational Therapy in 2011.
Kristine joined New Hampshire Orthopaedic Center in 2016, drawn to the fact that New Hampshire Orthopaedic Center offered therapy in-house and had multiple locations in Southern NH. Being in a physician owned practice allows for the opportunity to easily communicate and collaborate with the surgeons on patient care which she says has ended up being a great fit.
Kristine always knew she wanted to work in healthcare and enjoyed helping people. Occupational Therapy offered her the opportunity to help others and allows for some creative problem solving and flexibility for treatment settings. She is a Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) and specializes in upper extremity rehab. She also makes custom thermoplastic splints for upper extremities.
Kristine really enjoys working with traumatic injuries and post-op rehab. She likes the wound care and splinting aspects of treating these diagnoses and seeing the healing process and having to problem solve complex diagnoses.
Outside of work Kristine enjoys spending time with family, hiking, gardening, kayaking, and crafting.
