New Clinical Service to the Hermitage Medical Clinic: HAND THERAPY

Hand Therapy combines techniques of Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy to promote healing and restore hand function. A number of the principal techniques include splinting, joint mobilisation, stretching, retraining, scar management and guidance and advise on activities of daily living. Hand Therapy has a crucial role in assisting recovery to hands and upper limbs from a traumatic injury or surgical procedure. Conditions seen by a Hand Therapist primarily include fractures of the hand or arm, burns, lacerations and amputations, and surgical repairs to tendons and nerves. Acquired conditions such as tendonitis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome are also commonly treated.

Liza Fitzgerald is our new Senior Occupational Therapist to the Physiotherapy Team. She has extensive experience and specialises specifically in Hand Therapy and has worked previously in the National Burns Unit of St. James Hospital.
