Hand therapy is an area of advanced practice for physiotherapists and occupational therapists. Practitioners of hand therapy have additional training which gives them a special understanding of the complex functioning of the wrist and hand.
At Melbourne Hand Rehab, we are leaders in the field of hand therapy. Our staff are renowned throughout the industry. Our Director, Karen Fitt, is the immediate past president of the Australian Hand Therapy Association (AHTA) and is currently the Chair of the AHTA advocacy committee. Several members of our staff lecture at Melbourne-based universities and at professional association events, and each staff member benefits from an in-depth mentoring system.
Our established clinics are staffed by professional physiotherapists and occupational therapists who are trained and have experience in diagnosis, splinting, wound care and hand therapy treatment. Our staff follow strict guidelines around infection control. Our rooms are well appointed, and our therapists are usually available to see you within a few days of your first contact with us.
The staff at Melbourne Hand Rehab also understand the importance of communicating with other members of your health care team, including GPs, surgeons, and other allied health practitioners.
