Hand therapy as the name suggests is therapy of the hand including the wrist and forearm.
At Mitchell Integrated Therapy we have two hand therapists who are well trained in this specific area and can form an injury diagnosis, do post-surgical therapy, splinting, casting, scar management, wound care and injury treatment.
Hand therapists often use splints to rest the hand, combined with exercises and scar management. The hand is particularly important and extraordinarily complex.
To treat the hand effectively therapists should undertake further education which Mitchell Integrated Therapy ensures clinicians do.
