Your hands are a vital component of how you work, play, and interact with others. Even a small hand injury can cause considerable impact on your ability to care for yourself or others, your ability to participate in sports or leisure pursuits and your ability to work.
At Central Victorian Hand Therapy, our qualified hand therapists are here to help you overcome and recover to achieve the best possible outcome after any hand, wrist, or elbow condition. We will undertake a comprehensive assessment of your injury or condition, and work with you to design the optimal treatment plan to allow you to achieve your rehabilitation goals. Treatment could include exercises to improve joint stiffness or build strength, or a custom made orthosis to help support or repair damaged tissues.
We work closely with a range of professionals both locally and in Melbourne to ensure a coordinated and seamless rehabilitation journey.
