THE HAND IS A
"TOOL OF TOOLS"
City Hands offers physiotherapy for the hand, wrist, forearm and elbow in central Auckland.
Aristotle described the human hand as a “tool of tools” and this is such an apt description. From computer work, to sport, to cooking your family dinner – we need our hands and unless you’ve had a hand injury, you haven’t a complete appreciation of how true this is. Even the poor, under-rated little finger is surprisingly painful and life-affecting. Don’t worry, we get it!
The hand has complex anatomy and its high functional requirements often necessitate focused input. Hand therapy is able to diagnose and provide advice/splinting/exercises and other forms of therapy for numerous disorders of the upper limb.
