What is hand therapy?
Hand therapy is a highly specialised branch of occupational therapy and physiotherapy. It takes many years to develop the skills needed to be an expert hand therapist and we are proud to have some of the country’s leading hand therapists on our team.
A hand therapist assesses and treats the hand and upper limb to effectively reduce pain, inflammation and scaring and maximise independence.
From supplying aids for day-to-day living, or splints which allow your hand to rest in comfort, to exercises that increase flexibility and range of motion in the joints, every client is given a thorough, individualised home assessment and treatment programme.
We aim to provide relevant, timely, goal orientated hand therapy treatment and rehabilitation programmes to clients in their own homes. Our collaborative approach, with the client at the centre, ensures the client receives the highest level of clinical care, training and support to empower them to manage their own hand therapy rehabilitation with professional support. Our aim is to help clients to become as independent as possible, as soon as possible, through result driven occupational therapy delivered by expert therapists.
