What Is Hand Therapy?

Hand therapy is a profession that has developed from both physiotherapy and occupational therapy.

All Melbourne Hand Rehab hand therapists have a physiotherapy or occupational
therapy degree, as well as extensive ongoing education and training in the area of hand therapy.

Hand therapy is a rapidly growing profession. The evidence base of hand therapy treatment is constantly developing due to an increase in scientific research in the area.

Melbourne Hand Rehab is dedicated to keeping abreast of all recent trends by attending all state and national conferences of the Australian Hand Therapy Association and the Victorian Hand Surgery Society.

The International Federation of Hand Therapists holds an international conference every three years. Melbourne Hand Rehab hand therapists have attended a majority of these meetings as well.
