For Health Professionals

Welcome to the Melbourne Hand Rehab page for health professionals and referrers.


In addition to treating people who self-refer, we are also a leading referral point for many Melbourne doctors. We also regularly work alongside hand surgeons to provide specialised post-operative rehabilitation support.


We love sharing our knowledge – our Hand Therapy Bulletin and regular training workshops and courses are a great way to keep up to date with current best practice and hand therapy community events.

How do online video hand therapy (Telehealth) consultations work? Karen answers your questions.



You do not need a referral to see a hand therapist as a private patient. Some patients are referred to us by a doctor or other medical professional. This is helpful for communication purposes; however it is not necessary.


Patients do need a referral if attending under WorkCover, TAC, Medicare or DVA.


Unsure if hand therapy is right for you or your patient?
