Hand therapy is a very specialised type of physiotherapy performed by trained Hand Therapists. Hand therapy includes exercise programmes, stretching techniques, splintage and special treatments such as ultrasound. I work very closely with a team of hand therapists and I will often see patients together with the Hand Therapist or recommend a treatment by them.
Many hand injuries and some other hand problems are treated without surgery by the hand therapy team under my supervision. A hand therapy programme may be primary treatment, used before or after surgery. Good hand therapy after an injury or after hand surgery is essential to recover quickly and to achieve the best possible result.
The hand therapists who work with me are extremely experienced and are the best in their field.
