Our hand therapists are qualified physiotherapists or occupational therapists specialising in the upper limb. They have a high level of specialization thanks to advanced post-graduate education and extensive clinical experience.

Any disease, deformity or injury that affects the hand can be cared for, treated and returned to an optimal level of recovery through expert handling and guidance through a number of different skills.

Recovery methods

These include:

  • exercise programs for home
  • splinting
  • hands-on treatment
  • evidence-based advice.

The qualified physiotherapist/occupational therapist can accurately assess, identify and treat problems affecting anywhere in the upper limbs from the shoulder through the upper arm and elbow, down to the forearm, wrist, hand and fingers.

You’ll get personalised advice on how to deal with any challenges you might face, and what you can do to maximise your recovery or function. 

This might include detailed advice on adaptations you can make to your normal activities or useful pieces of equipment to help you with day to day tasks.

Our hand therapists work closely alongside our expert surgeons, helping to plan and deliver post-operative care in order to enhance patient recovery, even from as soon as the day after your surgery.
