Who are Melbourne Hand Rehab?
Karen Fitt (Physiotherapist and Past President of the Australian Hand Therapy Association) started Melbourne Hand Rehab 30 years ago with a vision to provide excellence in hand therapy care in the private setting. Since then, MHR have helped thousands of people overcome their hand injuries and conditions to get their lives back on track. We are known as experts in providing a full service of hand therapy treatments including splinting, pain management, musicians’ injuries, sports injuries and postoperative rehabilitation.
The services we offer include work site liaison and assessment, splinting, hydrotherapy, gym work, dry needling, home visits and inpatient work at private hospitals. We work with hand surgeons, pain specialists, other medical specialists, GPs and other allied health professionals. We are also known for our excellence in staff training, taking physios and OTs and nurturing them into excellent hand therapists with our fellowship program.
Karen is also the author and presenter of the Wrist Course, run through both the APA (Australian Physiotherapy Association) and the AHTA (Australian Hand Therapy Association).
