How We Can Help?

 

Image

Hand therapy brings together techniques of occupational therapy (scar management, re-training, splinting, advice on activities of daily living) and physiotherapy (joint mobilisation, stretching, active and resistive exercise, ultrasound).

Your hand therapist can assist with emotional and psychological support as well as helping to restore hand function.

Our hand therapist is HCPC registered and is a member of the British Association of Hand Therapists.
