Arthritis Management Program

Our Arthritis Management Program has arrived!

Introducing Melbourne Hand Rehab’s all new Arthritis Management Program. It’s especially designed to help you understand your arthritis and better manage your symptoms. As part of the program, you’ll get tips on how to optimise your hand function in daily activities, and what exercises and treatments will work best for your condition.

 

When and Where?

Sessions run every month and our venues alternate between our Richmond and North Essendon clinics. The program consists of two 40-minute sessions which are conducted in a small group.

 

What does the program cover?

As part of the program, you’ll get the low-down on:

 

  • What causes arthritis?
  • Why your joints hurt and what can be done about it.
  • Splinting and bracing options – you can try on the different types of splints and braces.
  • Heat and cold therapy – try them out and discover what works for you.
  • Joint protection principles and techniques (including tips on aids and equipment) and a booklet to take home.
  • Hand exercises to improve flexibility, movement and strength.
  • A supervised exercise session with the hand therapist.

Who is the program for?

These sessions are designed for anyone with arthritic symptoms in their hands or wrists, regardless of how long you have had them.
