Hand Therapy is described as...
‘the art and science of rehabilitation of the upper limb, which includes the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder girdle. It is a merging of occupational and physical therapy theory and practice that combines comprehensive knowledge of the structure of the upper limb with function and activity.
Using specialized skills in assessment, planning and treatment, hand therapists provide therapeutic interventions to prevent dysfunction, restore function and/or reverse the progression of pathology of the upper limb in order to enhance an individual’s ability to execute tasks and to participate fully in life situations’.
We have a close working relationship with Christchurch based Sports and Musculoskeletal Physicians, Pain Specialists, many Physiotherapists and other Allied Health Professionals who may be involved in your care.
