What is Hand Therapy?

Hand therapy is a specialised area of physical therapy that focuses on the evaluation and treatment of conditions affecting the hand, wrist, and forearm. Pain, discomfort, or limited wrist mobility can significantly affect daily activities, and can arise from various factors, including injuries like falls or gradual wear and tear.

How can we help?

Our team of hand therapists are specialist occupational therapists and physios, based in Central London, with expertise in hand and wrist care. They can assess a broad spectrum of injuries and conditions, and provide you with the most effective support and treatment. Where beneficial, they also have access to state-of-the art technology to offer custom-made splints (orthoses) to optimise the management of your hand or wrist condition.

Who can benefit from Hand Therapy?

Hand therapy can be beneficial for individuals who have experienced hand, wrist or forearm related injuries, conditions, or surgeries.

Hand & Wrist Injuries

Hand therapists work with patients who have sustained injuries such as fractures, dislocations, sprains, or strains in the hand, wrist, or forearm.

Post-Surgery Rehabilitation

After surgical procedures on the hand, wrist, or forearm (such as tendon repairs, nerve repairs, joint replacements, or ligament reconstructions), hand therapy is often recommended to aid in the recovery process.

Work Related Upper Limb Disorder

People with conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, or repetitive strain injuries may benefit from hand therapy to reduce pain and improve function.


Hand therapists can provide techniques and exercises to manage the symptoms of arthritis in the hand and wrist, helping patients maintain joint mobility and reduce pain.

Neurological Conditions

Hand therapy can be part of rehabilitation for individuals with neurological conditions that affect hand function, such as stroke, nerve damage, or spinal cord injuries.

Injury Prevention

We can assess your movement patterns, strength and physical condition to identify potential areas of weakness that could lead to injury.

What will your treatment involve?

The goal of hand therapy is to help individuals regain optimal function and independence in their daily lives, whether it’s for work, self-care, hobbies, or sports. Our specialist hand therapists will work closely with you to develop a treatment plan tailored to your specific problems and expectations.

Once your condition has been assessed, and your needs and goals established, treatment may include:

  • Range of motion exercises to improve joint mobility.
  • Strengthening exercises to enhance grip and hand strength.
  • Manual therapy, which involves hands-on techniques to improve tissue mobility and reduce pain.
  • Custom splinting to support and protect the hand during the healing process.
  • Sensory re-education for individuals with nerve injuries.
  • Scar management to improve the appearance and function of scar tissue.
  • Functional training to help patients regain the ability to perform daily tasks and activities.
