Newington Physiotherapy in proud partnership with Ballarat Hand Therapy
(Occupational Therapy & Physiotherapy)
Hand Therapy is the art and science of rehabilitation of the upper limb. In our clinic our therapists treats the hand, wrist and some elbow conditions such as tennis elbow. It involves evaluation and testing to assess the injured limb from which a specific treatment program can be designed. A variety of specialised treatment techniques are used to achieve these goals.
Problems treated by Hand Therapists can include trauma ( fractures, tendon or nerve lacerations, crush injuries), sprains, tendonitis, arthritis and nerve compressions such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Hand Therapists are registered Occupational Therapists or Physiotherapists who, through further education, clinical experience and independent further study, have become proficient in the treatment of upper limb conditions resulting from injury or disease.
Hand Therapy Consultations are provided by Laura who is an occupational Therapist and Accredited Hand Therapist (Ballarat Hand Therapy) and Joe who is a physiotherapist currently undergoing the accreditation process to become a Hand Therapist.
