ABOUT HAND THERAPY ASSOCIATES
HOW WE STARTED

Our accredited hand therapists provide evidence-based management for the treatment of hand and upper limb conditions.

The team at Hand Therapy Associates provides all aspects of hand therapy and physiotherapy. Hand physiotherapy treatment is tailored to the individual. Treatment focuses on maximising the function for patients who have suffered an injury or undergone surgery to their hand, wrist or elbow.
