A hand therapist is a Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist with specialist knowledge and experience in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the hand, wrist and elbow.

A thorough understanding of the complex anatomy and biomechanics is essential to provide accurate diagnosis and management for each individual injury or condition.

Hand Therapists work ‘hand in hand’ with various other health professionals such as Hand surgeons (plastic and orthopaedic surgeons), sports medicine physicians, Rheumatologists, General Practitioners, and general physiotherapists, osteopaths, exercise physiologists and chiropractors.
