Hands & Upper Limbs Rehabilitation

Our hands and upper limbs are so important in making many of our daily living activities possible – from being able to pursue our interest in different types of sports, down to the fine movement of being able to button shirts, zip pants and sign our names.  Hence when the use of our hands or upper limbs has been restricted through an injury or illness, on top of physical deficits, our mental wellbeing could be also affected.

 

Part of our core team, our hand therapy & upper limb rehabilitation specialists provides support to a wide variety of clients who face difficulties in using their hand, following an injury or illness. 

 

Our client-centred approach ensures that while our clients receive the highest level of care based on latest evidence based practices, most importantly, they are also empowered to manage their own upper limb rehabilitation should they wish to do so.

To ensure that we can better help you achieve your goals, our therapists will perform a thorough assessment on your first visit and discuss personalised goals that are realistic and meaningful to you.

 

Subsequently, to ensure  progression towards your goals,  subjective and objective markers such as your pain, range of motion, sensation and strength will be measured, depending on your needs.
