Hand Therapy

Custom made hand splints and physiotherapy (joint mobilisations, stretching, active and resisted exercises, ultrasound) to help patients regain full use of their hand and extremities.

First4Therapy offer Hand Therapy Treatment for our Clients. The hands are sensitive and require proper rehabilitation following surgery or trauma, an individual approach that focuses on the optimal management of hand injury is critical. We help patients restore their hand function.


What is Hand Therapy?


Hand therapy is the non-surgical management of hand disorders and injuries using physical methods such as exercise, splinting and wound care. Hand therapists also treat other upper limb disorders that affect hand function.

Some hand therapists also undertake diagnosis and treatment of common hand disorders, including injections and requesting and interpretation of x-rays. Hand Therapy is a type of rehabilitation for patients that suffer from conditions affecting the hands and upper limbs to regain the functional use of their hands.

The role of Hand Therapy:

  • Help to reduce sensitivity from nerve problems
  • Provide home exercise programs to help with movement and strength of the hand
  • Make splints to protect or help to prevent/improve stiffness

After surgery, hand therapists can also help with a patient’s recovery. This may include managing the scar, reducing swelling and providing a splint.
