Post Surgical Rehabilitation
Rehabilitation after surgery is important to achieve a good result. Surgery for conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, Dupuytrens release, fracture fixation and tendon or ligament repairs require specific post surgical treatment to protect the tissues, manage wounds and scars, reduce swelling and restore full movement, strength and function.
Hand therapists are specially trained in post surgical rehabilitation and have close contact with surgeons to ensure optimal results. If you had surgery privately or in the pubilc hospital we can look after your post-operative rehabilitation.
Our hand therapists regularly attend conferences in NZ and internationally to ensure we are aware of trends in current research and treatment protocols.
