GEELONG HAND THERAPY
What is Hand Therapy?
Hand therapy helps a patient regain maximum use of his or her hand after injury, surgery or the onset of disease.
Appointments are run by Geelong Hand Therapy.
A comprehensive assessment is completed prior to treatment. This includes a detailed patient history and review of X-rays, range of motion measurements, grip and pinch strength, sensation, joint stability, swelling and function, as well as other special tests that can help identify problem areas.
A diagnosis is made on the basis of the assessment and a comprehensive treatment plan is then developed.
Treatment can include splinting, wound, scar and oedema management, exercise rehabilitation, electrical modalities, pain management, provision of aids and appliances, and assistance with return to work, sport, leisure and / or daily activities.
Appointments Available: Mondays 9am – 1pm
