Hand Therapy

Dynamic splint

What happens to the hand after injury or surgery? 

Our hands are integral body parts for our everyday living. Hands are complex in their design and specific therapy, guided by well-researched protocols, is necessary for rehabilitation of hand injuries. 

Our splints are made out of thermoplastic material. A splint is custom designed and fabricated by your therapist, to suit each individual's specific requirements. 

If you are not sure about your hand after sustaining an injury, book a consultation for an assessment session, and discuss a treatment plan with your therapist. 

Therapy Modalities

Splinting

Splinting the finger, hand, wrist, elbow or upper arm - for protection, immobilization and therapeutic programmes.

Pressure

Fabrication of pressure garments for scars, oedema (swelling) and mobilization of joints. 
Massaging for skin mobilization and scar maturation.

Therapeutic Exercises

Using well-researched protocols to guide mobilization and restoration of hand function after an injury/surgery.

Activities of daily living

Facilitating engagement in daily activities at work, school, sports and at home - integrating hand function appropriately and safely.
