Aristotle described the human hand as the “tool of tools” and for each of us, in a myriad of different ways, this is entirely true. It is due to this sort of use, that our hands sometimes get injured.
The hand’s complex anatomy and functional requirements, often necessitate specialised input. Hand therapy is able to diagnose and provide advice/splinting/exercises and other forms of therapy for numerous disorders of the upper limb.
The most important role we have as hand therapists is to advise and educate you on your condition, and help as your rehabilitation progresses through the stages of healing.
