Hand Therapy

What is Hand Therapy?

Hand Therapy Perth

Hand therapy is a critical component to rehabilitation of the upper limb either post-operatively or for injuries that don’t require surgery.    The focus of hand therapy is to promote recovery, maximise improvements and meet specific goals following injury including returning to work related tasks, daily living and sporting activities.

Common conditions requiring hand therapy include:

Treatment often begins within a few days following injury or surgery.  It may be important to attend therapy on the same-day of referral post-operatively to commence mobilisation or fit a protective splint or orthosis.
